The big closed beta for Amazon’s MMO New World just kicked off yesterday and things initially appeared to be going smoother than I’d expected. I started watching a few folks play, as I’d hoped to. Ed seems to have enjoyed it so far according to his New World preview. Since yesterday though, things have gotten a bit too hot to handle for some folks using RTX 3090 graphics cards. Players across several different forums are reporting overheating that’s led to GPU failure. Amazon are aware of the issue, and have started with some tips to help players avoid overheating.
