I see so many people on Reddit, these forums, and multiple discords complaining about either nothing to do or they have spent 200+ hours in the game and there is now no content. The game has been out for nearly 19 days. That’s almost 3 weeks or just 456 hours.
Please, if you’re burning every waking hour into this game and rushing to finish everything there is, don’t complain about no content. A lot of New World is about exploring, crafting, experimenting with weapons, and of course PvP.
At the start of the game there is obviously going to be level gaps between a bunch of the player base due to it only being out for 19 days. Some people might be picking it up just recently after seeing Twitch streamers play it, some might have played for a bit and took a break. It doesn’t make sense for the majority of the players to be level 60 and people shouldn’t be treating the game like that’s what should be happening right now. Sure there is still PvP, but in a few months time the PvP will find it’s footing for sure and I cannot wait to see that happen. It sounds like a blast.
A lot of the content is this game is what you make it. It doesn’t hold your hand and tell you “go do this thing right now”. It gives you choices. Want to go level in a random zone? Feel free! Want to chop down trees for hours to craft or sell the materials? Have at 'er! Quest time? Quest time!
If you’re complaining about no content, maybe you just aren’t interested in the content provided. And that’s OK. You can not be interested in the content provided but it’s not the fault of the developers for that. It just means the game isn’t meant for you and you should go find a game where you enjoy spending your time.
Give the game time to mature and grow. Sure, there are bugs and issues that are being ironed out. That’s how game development goes. It’s a constant wheel that never stops. If you don’t enjoy the game, step back for a bit. It will be here when you come back.
Now I’m off to go find some ore and skin some animals. Maybe a few quests here and there, but we will see. Hope to see you folks inside the New World!
