While the issue seems more hardware-based, or even platform-based with most complaints centered on the EVGA Team 3090, instead of the game itself, Amazon took to its forums to detail some steps gamers could take to ensure their GPUs would remain unaffected. Now the team assures players in a statement on Twitter that it is completely safe to play New Worlds beta.
In the statement, Amazon states that “hundreds of thousands of people” played in New world beta, which accrues to millions of the total number of hours played. The statement says they have received “few reports of gamers using high-performance graphics cards”
“New world makes standard DirectX calls as provided by the Windows API. “We have not seen any indication of widespread problems with the 3090s, either in beta or during the many months of alpha testing,” the statement said on Twitter.
“The New world Closed Beta is safe to play. To further reassure players, we will implement an update today that covers frames per second on the menu screen. We are grateful for the support New world receives from our players worldwide, and will continue to listen to their feedback throughout the Beta and beyond. “
