We’ve compiled a short guide to changing factions in Amazon Games’ MMO, New World.

Some server worlds of Aeternum are experiencing a one-sided take over in New World, according to player reports. Certain worlds have become overrun with a specific faction, creating an imbalance that has alienated players who favor a non-dominant alliance. Amazon Games has provided a server transfer feature for those looking surround themselves with allies rather than enemies.

However, those who don’t want to leave their friends behind may simply seek to switch factions

Can You Change Factions in New World?

Yes, you can change factions in New World. This is accomplished via an in-game mechanic players can access from their individual character. We’ve laid out the steps below:

  1. While in-game, press “K” to prompt the Character screen to appear.
  2. Select “Bio” from the available options on the screen.
  3. Locate the faction display panel on the right side of the menu. It should have a banner graphic showing your current faction and rank.
  4. Click the “Change Faction” button underneath your faction token total.

From there, players can select their new faction—with a few caveats. Those who want to switch cannot switch to the faction that controls the the most territory on the map. Once they do switch, they will lose all their faction tokens and have their rank reset to the lowest tier.

Factions can be switched once every 120 days.
