Amazon’s New World has announced a new patch that will bring much-needed changes to its economy measures, especially to counter coin sellers in the game. Coin sellers were the ones who would advertise selling in-game currency for real cash and sold them via third party websites. The developers have decided to ban such accounts along with some added restrictions in currency used within the game.

New World released its patch 1.0.5 update, which made some crucial changes to the game’s economy. The detailed changes according to the patch notes are as follows:

  • Banned and suspended many of the reported accounts. Thank you for your reports for players spamming chat.

  • Added restrictions to prevent player-to-player trading and currency transfer from characters under level 10, or whose account is less than 72 hours old. Logging in after your account is 72 hours old will enable your ability to trade and transfer currency once you’ve hit level 10.

  • Redistributed coin value from some early quests to later in the Main Story questline, keeping the total amounts of coin earned the same, just delivered in quests slightly later.

  • Trading Post usage will be restricted until new characters accept the “Introduction to Trading Post” quest in their first settlement.

Amazon has also disabled Steam’s Family Sharing feature along with the aforementioned changes for New World.
