New World Got Final Quest for Main Storyline

The Heart of Madness update has arrived in New World, despite some technical issues. Thanks to it we'll be able to fight the final duel with Isabella. On top of that we'll get some new firearms.


The update has been released.

Original news

This month, New World will be getting an update titled Heart of Madness, which will offer, among other things the final quest of the main storyline. You can read the full list of changes here.

Originally a serious bug found by the testers at the last minute forced the developers to delay the release of the update to today. The two-hour technical break was supposed to start at 5 am PT, but a few hours ago it was announced that this will not happen.

According to the latest plan the developers will provide us with an update tomorrow, around the same time - unfortunately, they did not specify whether they mean specifically the Heart of Madness update or simply an update on the progress of work on combating the problem.

What awaits us in Heart of Madness?

"The main story questline picks up as you pursue Isabella back to Shattered Mountain. The final quest, The Heart of the Tempest, is given by Yseult Meredith, located at Mountain Home Outpost in Shattered Mountain. Additional repeatable quests can be taken from Mara Rosa, in the cathedral just south of the Expedition entrance.

The final showdown against Isabella has arrived, as you delve deep into the Tempest’s Heart Expedition. Pursue the Tempest into a corrupted dimension of reality, through the twisted capital city of Myrkgard. Discover the secrets of her past while you dive deeper into her corrupted mind.

The Tempest’s Heart is an endgame expedition for 5 players. Recommended for level 60 [current level cap - ed. note] players with Gearscores between 550 and 570."

New weapon

"The Blunderbuss is a ranged weapon that offers high-mobility coupled with potent close-to-mid range damage. It’s the first weapon to scale on strength and intelligence, making it a good companion for bruiser or mage builds."

  1. The number and quality of rewards that players receive in Elite Boss Arenas have been increased as well.

Other changes

From now on, Rafflebones will now spawn anywhere on the map at different levels. When the player encounters him, he only has 45 seconds to kill him. If they succeed, they will receive valuable loot.

  1. Devs redesigned the layout and items that can be encountered on Unbound Island.
  2. Doubled the storage bonus on all levels of Storage Chests (e.g. from 200 to 400).
  3. Removed the level threshold that was required for main thread quests.
  4. Removed collisions with other players during Expeditions, Invasions, and open world exploration.
