New World's first post-launch update doesn't include character transfer, but plenty of bug fixes

Patch notes for the first New World update since its launch are here, and while the much-demanded option to transfer characters across servers isn’t ready yet, according to the blog post, the groundwork for it has been laid and “you may see elements of that work in the in-game store.” Amazon says more information on how the feature works will be available “later this week when we release server transfers.”

In the meantime, update 1.0.1 goes live at 3am PT on October 6, and will include “a few additional quality of life updates and bug fixes to ensure that once players have entered Aeternum they’re able to play and progress as intended.”
