The New World character creation disabled situation is one that many are concerned about at the moment as more and more players continue to hop into the new MMORPG for the first time.

For those wondering what's the hold up in terms of simply being able to dive into the world of Aeternum, here's a breakdown of the character creation disabled issue in New World.

New World Character Creation Disabled Error: Latest Status

Since officially releasing on Sept. 28, New World has made quite the splash in the gaming world, so much so in fact that there are perhaps too many players for the game to support.

On Friday, Oct. 1, New World put out the following statement in which they announced that character creation would be disabled in full servers due to the sheer overpopulation of players looking to play the game.

"Due to the incredible demand we have seen for New World," Amazon Games said, "we have been working hard to increase the number of servers and increase the capacity of all available servers. We are also implementing a system to prevent new players from creating new characters in full servers.

"This does not affect any character already created on the server and you will be able to log in as usual."

New World has since put out links to a new server status page that updates hourly to show whether or not players can create new characters in them.

As it stands, it seems the only way to create a new character is to find one of the servers with a green check mark next to it and try it out.

Unfortunately, this has been a major issue especially for more experienced players looking to play with friends who have yet to join or make a character, of course.

It seems the character creation limit system was done in an effort to alleviate the game's notorious queue times, however, players are reporting that the new feature is extending to servers with low populations and no queues, so it appears this is something Amazon Games definitely has to clean up on their end.

With Amazon Games' Twitter reporting that, for the month of October, their team is focusing on New Worlds' issues, bugs, exploits, and quality of life, we can all only hope that these early hiccups for the game will be solved soon.
