Improved Group Finder Now Live – New World Patch 4.0.4

New World Patch 4.0.4 is out Now! Read the full Patch Notes including the new improved Group Finder, Winter Fashion Week Contest Winners and more quality-of-life changes.

New World Patch 4.0.4 Patch Notes

COMBAT
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to not properly get contribution (including loot bags) for killing enemies while in a group.

  • Fixed issue that caused Defensive Formation to remain active while sprinting.

  • Outpost Rush Powder Kegs:

    • Reduced the cost from 100 Azoth to 50 Azoth, and doubled their health (15K to 30K)

  • Pestilence (Artifact):

    • Increased cooldown between activations from 0.5s to 1s and updated tooltip to clarify that there is a cooldown.

EXPEDITIONS
  • Added flag to track if a player was kicked from their group. Don’t apply leaver penalty when kicked.

    • Leaver penalty applies when closing the client or connection times out.

  • Fixed respawn point filtering for Outpost Rush and Expeditions.

  • Respawn shrines are now available in Cross-World Expeditions.

  • Expedition counts are now consumed for Cross-World Expeditions.

  • Revive counts are now enforced in Cross-World Expeditions.

  • Added “Elapsed Time In Expedition” to control when to apply Deserter Penalty after “X” time.

  • The number of Mutated Expeditions will be increased to 3 per week. Every Mutation rotation that follows this update will have a set of 3 Mutated Expeditions.

    • Please note, there will be an interruption to the Mutation schedule for this upcoming rotation. Mutations will rotate on 2/6 at 11PM PST per the usual schedule, but there will be another rotation during the 2/7 downtime that’ll change the list of Mutations again.

NOTABLE FIXES
  • All seasonal event quests will be appropriately removed outside of the event, and players who were holding summer event quests will no longer have a broken Journal screen.

  • Fixed an issue in which three quest rewards characters appeared as generic NPCs instead of their unique appearances.

  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from entering the Sandworm Elite Trial remotely through the map or activities UI.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Cross-World Expeditions to not display on the Expedition map.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Outpost Rush matches to start with only backfilled players.

  • Fixed a visual issue with element positioning for Soul Trials.

ECONOMY, PROGRESSION & GEAR
  • Fixed an issue that allowed players without Rise of the Angry Earth to receive unusable loot above 625 Gear Score.

  • Fixed an issue that caused the Frigid Dawn armor set to not appear as a material replica recipe at the Gypsum Kiln.

KNOWN ISSUES
  • Players in pre-made groups disband after abandoning or completing an Expedition.

  • Role selection DOES support the Lost Stopwatch artifact to quality for Tank role, but the UI only mentions Carnelian Gems

  • Role counter does not update after kicking member from group and can stall the queuing process.

    • Work around – If any remaining player revisits the Role Select screen, the group size will update and will proceed as expected.

  • Soul Trial entrances can sometimes show both lobby and matchmaking elements.

    • No workaround needed, just click the button and proceed to the entrance screen.

  • Trying to change your role while in a Cross-World match does not give a reason why it fails to update.

  • When queuing for Outpost Rush or Arena, the global “Leave Queue” button is missing from the updated UI.

    • Players must leave queue through the main Queue Status HUD (top right), or from the specific Outpost Rush/Arena screens.

  • After playing an Outpost Rush match, the Expedition’s queue HUD can briefly show Outpost Rush match sizes before the first player accepts the invite.
