Thinking why New World won’t let me respawn after dying? Is the game forcing you to log out and making you wait in a queue to get back in to respawn at the last source point? In this article, we’ll guide how you fix this delay in New World.

New World is a thrilling open-world MMO that is filled with danger and opportunities for the players to take over the supernatural island of Aeternum. The players can forge themselves as adventurers among the island’s wilderness and ruins. The game has natural resources that respawn quite often.

However, quite a few users are reporting that when they die in New World, the game forces them to respawn far away from an inn or a camp. As a result, the players have to log out and wait for several days to respawn especially in Everfall. Let’s find out why you experience this issue in New World and what can you do about it.

What Happens When You die on New World?

What Happens When You die on New World?

In New World, when you die in battle, you remain incapacitated for 2 minutes. However, a player can revive you if your enemy does not do any further damage to you.

In that 2 minutes time frame, if no player chooses to revive you or your enemy does additional damage to you, you’ll die at the same spot and respawn at your last respawn point that can be an inn or a camp.

At this exact moment, a bug in New World forces you to respawn far away from the camp or inn that can cause additional waiting time to respawn.
