Amazon has finally released its most anticipated game of 2021, New World yesterday, and players have started flooding into the servers to have their piece of the cake. New World was undoubtedly the most awaited game and we are more than happy with its release. The game marked the grand entry of Amazon into the MMORPG world and it could not have been better.
Within just 24 hours of its release, the game has shattered a lot of records. It was in the top 10 list of the games with the most active concurrent players at a time within hours of its release. And the numbers rose so fast that we saw it just behind CS: GO at the second spot.
New World is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game which gives a vibe of regular yet intense action moments with a hint of supernatural powers included! Players all over the world have shown a heavy amount of love towards the game and it deserves so. It offers an ever-remembering experience of the gruesome Player versus Player battle and a good touch of the Player versus Environment as well.
With a surge of players in the queue to play the game, it was obvious that the game would have some defects or issues. Amazon launched the game with a total of 200 servers, and this number proved to be very low after the players started flooding in. In fact, the number of players waiting in the queue was almost five times greater than those playing it!
The game was delayed for almost a year as the developers wanted some more time to make a better game, and they did for sure. But when it comes to games, no matter how hard the developers work for them, it happens that there are some (even small!) issues that affect the experience of the players. One such issue with New World was the black screen that appeared after the character creation.
New World blesses the players with the black screen mostly after they have created their character and are ready to hop into a server to play the game. Once the players have created their character and confirmed their name, a cutscene plays followed by a black screen that lasts for some time. The black screen may persist for a few seconds or go on for some minutes to even a longer time. Here are some solutions on what you can do when you get a black screen in the game –
The first thing you can do when you get a black screen is that you can have some patience, and wait. Most of the time the black screen ends up putting you in a queue where you can join any server. Do not quit the game immediately as you may be gifted with an even longer queue after rejoining!
If the black screen persists for a longer time, it will be better if you quit the game and restart it again. This has solved the problem for many. You can also try creating a new character in a new server after restarting.
You can check your graphics drivers after restarting the game to find any updates available. The black screen is most likely a result of the servers not being able to keep up with the influx of players trying to get into the game at launch. So checking for the updates can hopefully fix the problem.
You can also try to uninstall the game and reinstall it to start from the scratches. This has reportedly solved this issue too.
These solutions can hopefully fix the black screen issue for you!
