Update 26 October 2021: Amazon Games has released an announcement regarding the server transfer status of New World.
We’ve transferred approximately 150K players since character transfers went live. A small number of those have resulted in characters with an invalid data state that needs to be corrected. We’ve done that for those affected last night, but there are a still some new transfers affected that we see happening. We have paused character transfers and evaluate how we can prevent future occurrences of this problem. When that is resolved we’ll resume the service, with an announcement ahead of time.TrevzorFTW New World Forums

How to Start a Server Transfer in New World
To transfer your character in New World to a different server, you’ll need to obtain a Character Transfer Token. The first one is free and is available from the in-game store.
Claiming your token will initiate the transfer, so it’s important to ensure you’re logged into the right character before continuing.
You’ll be given a choice of servers where you can transfer your character. However, the server transfer must take place in the same region, e.g. EU Central, US West, etc.
Before transferring, make sure you’re in a settlement or outpost, retrieve any active sell orders, and leave your company. Be aware that your friends list will be gone when you transfer.
What Can You Take With You When You Transfer?
When you transfer your character in New World to a new server, you’ll take the following:
- Any character progression, including levels, weapon mastery, skills, etc.
- Storage and inventory.
- Houses, including any decorations and furniture.
- Quest progress.
How Much Does It Cost To Transfer Servers?
The first character and server transfer are free. If you want to transfer another character to a different server in New World or transfer your existing character again, you’ll need to pay.
Character Transfer Tokens can be purchased from the in-game store. However, as of October 25, 2021, tokens are not able to be purchased until Amazon Games reviews the demand for the service.
Are There Any Restrictions?
There are a few restrictions when it comes to transferring servers in New World.
- You cannot move a character to a full server.
- You cannot move your character to a server that’s currently down or in maintenance.
- If you have an existing character in the world you want to transfer to, you cannot transfer another character.
