New World won’t launch / start / load , steam just sits there doing nothing, please help!

Reddit User ‘JustAGrowBro’ brings us the fix.

If Amazon’s New World won’t launch / start / load , and / or if Steam just sits there in an infinite loading screen just try changing your Video / Desktop Resolution to 1080p (1920×1080). This should fix the problem. A ton of thanks goes out to the Bro!


Original Post:

Hello Everyone, during the first alpha beta New World took like 2 minutes to launch but at least it worked.

During the last open beta the game wouldn’t even start or anything, the steam game page would have the button to ‘stop’ it but yet nothing would happen. That makes my game time counter go up until I reset my system.

I bought the game again for launch, same thing. Nothing happens when I run the game through steam, so I’m coming to you for help.

Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

TRIED: Added exceptions for the game in Avast Antivirus
RESULT: Nothing

TRIED: Then I uninstalled all of my anti-virus and firewall software (Avast & Zone Alarm)
RESULT: Nothing

TRIED: Shutting Down Windows Defender
RESULT: Nothing

TRIED: Running Steam and New World in Admin mode
RESULT: Nothing

TRIED: Uninstalling and Re-installing New world after the antivirus software was uninstalled
RESULT: Nothing

——————————

That’s it.

BTW! My Specs:

Windows 10
i5 – 4570 3.2 GHZ
AMD RADEON RX 580 Series
16GB RAM
Installed on SSD 256GB

Someone please help! When it worked I loved the game but now, nothing!

TLDR: My New World game doesn’t launch, no error codes, and steam’s game playtime counter keeps going up! Thanks!
