Shroud to take a break from playing New World on his Twitch channel

Popular Twitch streamer Shroud recently announced his decision to take a break from streaming Amazon’s latest title, New World. The 27-year-old mentioned during his stream that he has spent a lot of hours playing the MMO title. He stated that he might take a week off from the game, even though he enjoys playing it.

“I looked at my hours, and it was insane. New World literally broke me.”‘

Shroud has spent over 300 hours ever since the game released on September 28. The former Mixer streamer has exclusively played the game on his channel, and he has stepped away from his comfort zone of FPS titles such as Valorant and many more for it. Fans have loved his approach towards playing the MMORPG genre with New World, and they will surely be disappointed to know that their favorite streamer will take a break from it.

Wants to see some improvement with New World

Shroud also noted that even with this break, he will continue to spend a lot of hours on New World. However, he mentioned that the developers need to fix many of its issues, such as bugs and exploits, which have become rampant. Shroud had earlier stated that the developers also need to figure out an endgame for New World if they don’t want players to quit the title.

“The amount I was playing that game, and the amount I will still continue playing that s*** game. I’m kidding. I love New World. But there are so many bugs and exploits, and it doesn’t stop.”
