New World Update 2.0.3

New World Patch 2.0.3 is here and so is Lord of the Bones himself. Jump in game and find Rafflebones.

Greetings, Adventurers!

New World Update 2.0.3 downtime will begin at 11:00PM PT (6:00AM UTC) on August 15 and last approximately 1 hour. As the curtain closes on this year’s Summer Medleyfaire, mysterious gateways have been spotted around Aeternum. Catch Rafflebones in the new Luck of the Bones event for legendary loot. This update will also introduce a new emote bundle to the in-game Store.

Luck of the Bones

Find portals, summon Rafflebones, and snatch Legendary rewards in Luck of the Bones. The elusive loot collector, Rafflebones, will have his unpredictable spawns guaranteed at any of the numerous portals throughout Aeternum. Best of all, its rewards are even better than usual. How will you make the most of your luck before the event ends on August 29?

Explore the announcement article for details on rewards and more.
