The team has upgraded from Unreal Engine 4.19 to Unreal Engine 4.20 which caused some delay in the update frequency. However, as promised by Marketing and Communications Director Jon Higgins, newer updates will roll out more frequently.

New World has also planned an exclusive tattoo cosmetic along with additional cosmetic appearance credits at launch as rewards for the players who gave valuable feedback during the beta-testing period.
