New World DOWNTIME, update 1.0.3 release time, patch notes and how to transfer characters


New World update 1.0.3 is about to be released on PC and Steam.

New World update 1.0.3 has an October 20 release date in the UK, where it will be available to download at 6am BST. Because of the time difference, US fans can download the update on October 19 at 10pm PT.

The bad news, however, is that the new update will be accompanied by five hours of server maintenance. Downtime begins at 6am BST, and should run until 11am.

The latest update is one of the biggest and most important downloads yet, adding character server transfers.

In order to transfer your character to a new server, you’ll first need to log into your character.

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll need to navigate to a new tab in the in-game store. This is where you can claim your character transfer token.

Once you’ve obtained your token, you’ll need to leave your Company and remove any active Trading Post sell orders and buy orders.

Your character must also be located in a sanctuary, which as Amazon points out, includes a settlement or outpost.
