New World, Amazon Game Studios’ long delayed MMO, is finally live, and it has quickly become the #2 game on Steam with more than 600,000 concurrent players and counting. Unfortunately, that also means server issues and long login queues for many players looking to dive in.
Most of the game’s North American and European servers are currently at “High” population counts, with a few still at “Medium” population. Amazon says it is looking into the problems and wants to get everyone into the game.
