Play With Friends in New World

People have been playing New World again, and ever since the servers went back up, a single question has been rearing its ugly head, leering at distressed gamers: how to play New World with friends?

How to play with friends?

If you spawn away from the rest of the group, there are several things you could try. The easiest way would be to talk to the guy after the shipwreck only once – make sure you do not take the second quest from him, as that one chains you to the area. Instead, start hiking towards your friends – it might be a trek of up to 20 minutes – and accept the quest only when you’re all together.

If you’re not in a hurry to join up, you could just keep playing separately for the first few hours – after you’re past the opening, when you reach the part when you start joining factions, it’s much easier to meet and group with people.

If you like games of chance, you can either keep killing yourself in the hope of respawning near your friends, or you can delete the character and start over, again hoping you’ll end up in a convenient place. It’s a gamble, but it’s the least amount of effort you can put into this. You should also know that you cant change the server, you have to start a new character if your friend is on another server.

    I still don’t understand, sure we can meet up in each others settlements but our quest line even for the factions takes us to different locations.

    Nevermind I’m a goose, the first quest for your faction is in initiation.
