A New World minimap is “not a high priority” but you won’t get banned for using mods

Players hoping to see a New World minimap like in all of the best MMOs on PC may be in for a long wait, as developer Amazon Game Studios says it’s “not a high priority”. The good news is that it’s not penalising players for using third-party mods – at least, not yet anyway.

When New World launched back in September it received good reviews from critics and players alike, but many were surprised by the reliance on the compass and the larger world map to track quests and other markers rather than the standard minimap used in most MMOs or open-world games.

In the latest developer blog posted earlier today, Amazon says that it “understands the reasons” players want a minimap but is concerned adding one will have “a negative effect on immersion” and that it has “concerns with it meshing with New World’s action combat style and world design”. The team is also worried a minimap “could change open-world behavior and potentially remove the natural exploration that happens now in the game.”
