Can I Run New World?

Despite its game world's lofty size, the New World system requirements are quite modest. On the CPU front, you'll need a minimum of an Intel Core i5-2400 or an AMD quad core processor, but stepping up to an Intel Core i7-2600K or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 will provide a more stable experience.

In terms of graphics cards, if you equip yourself with an Nvidia GTX 670 (2GB) or an AMD R9 280 then you should find no trouble finding passage into New World. Although, if your rig can stretch to an Nvidia GTX 970 or an AMD R9 390X, you'll be able to enjoy the Americas' beauty all the more.

8GB of RAM will suffice but 16GB is recommended by Amazon Games, but whatever your storage solution, be it HDD or SDD, you'll need 50GB of available space to play New World.

New World settings

New World is fresh out the doors with a comprehensive set of options to choose from, including audio, visuals, gameplay elements, communications, and accessibility.

The first thing you'll want to do is ensure your communications are correct. New World automatically detects your Windows microphone and audio settings, but you have the option to manually change them and adjust the sliders while you're at it. This is best tested with a friend in the lobby with you. When it comes to audio settings, it's best just to tweak the master volume slider to begin with. You can alter the individual cinematics, sound effects, ambient effects, vocals, voice overs, music, ambient music, and UI volume when you're a bit more familiar with the game.

There are plenty of accessibility options in the game, too, with eight different colour blindness settings (protanopia, protanomaly, deuteranopia, deuteranomaly, tritanopia, tritanomaly, achromatopsia, achromatomaly), scalable text, text-to-speech, and speech-to-text.

The system requirements are pretty tame, but it's still worth trying to squeeze every frame possible out of your rig. We're currently conducting tests to see which settings make the biggest impact and will update the page soon, so you can get the most out of New World.
