Fix: New World Freezing or Lagging after new update
Although there is no official acknowledgment or a permanent solution isn’t available yet, there are a couple of possible workarounds that may come in handy to some affected New World players. However, these workarounds won’t gonna work for everyone. Still, we’ll recommend you to try them out one by one to check if something improves the gameplay or not.
- The lagging or freezing issue seems to be related to something in the ‘Very High’ visual settings in the game. So, if you have a higher PC specification then make sure to set higher graphics settings for the New World game and the stuttering issue may get reduced a lot.
- Check for the latest game patch updates because the issue can only be fixed completely via a patch fix officially. If there is a new update available, just install it.
- Make sure to disable overlay apps that aren’t necessary for you or take higher system resources during the gameplay. You can track down those rogue overlay apps from Task Manager and then end the tasks one by one. If that didn’t help, then try uninstalling or turning off those overlay apps on the PC.
- Try repairing the New World game files on the PC via the Steam client. To do so: Open the Steam Library (make sure to log into the account) > Right-click on New World > Properties > Local Files tab > Verify Integrity of game files > Wait for the process to complete and then restart the PC to try again.
