We’ve got some news for you if you are among the growing community that is New World players. We can’t lie, it is a pretty good-looking game, but a recent bug will make gameplay be not that enjoyable.

A newfound weird issue that caused GPUs not to use all their resources and never load past 40% of usage, resulting in low fps in Outpost Rush and Wars specifically, is really annoying players.

For some gamers, sometimes the FPS would be sky high after the latest New World Update, but sometimes their rigs would struggle to breathe being locked to 40 fps in wars.

This issue actually has a simple workaround

As you probably remember, this is not the first hardware-related problem that we’ve had with New World. Right after the game was released, people started having all sorts of issues with it.

Players that had their systems equipped with RTX 3090 graphics cards were getting their gaming setups destroyed when trying it for the first time.

However, this new issue, although not as serious as the above-mentioned one, will still ruin your experience and make the game unplayable sometimes.

This happens after upgrading to Windows 11, which is still new and will probably face many consequences before it’s optimized completely.

But there’s no need to be alarmed because there is a workaround and you will be able to keep playing, as it seems that some users have actually managed to fix the issue.

As we said, there is a solution for this issue, if you are also experiencing it, and it won’t take a lot of your time so follow these steps and you’ll be past it in no time.

The first thing you should do is deactivate the Game Mode on your PC. It’s been proven, not only on New World, that this feature actually affects gaming performance, so make this your priority.

After you finished with the previous step, all you have to do is simply turn the graphic settings for the game to High Performance.

All this should be fixed, and you should see a solid 80-100 FPS in Outpost Rush. Wars have been around 70-90 constantly, but it mostly depends on the setup you are playing on.
