Massively multiplayer online roleplaying games are always a big time investment and sometimes a big financial investment too. Luckily, there’s no monthly subscription associated with Amazon Games’ New World. If you’re looking to power through the game as quickly as possible, whether it’s to catch up or reach the endgame, you probably have one question in mind. How long does it take to reach level 60 in New World? Well, the answer depends on many things, and here’s what you need to know.

Level 60 is currently the maximum level in New World at the time of writing, and we have heard nothing from Amazon Games about raising the level cap. However, it could be possible that the level cap is higher by the time you read this. 

How long does it take to reach level 60 in New World?

It will likely take you between 150 to 200 hours to reach level 60 in New World. There is a sizeable time variance due to how you like to play the game. Focusing on Town Project Board and Main Story quests will be the quickest way to level. Grinding mobs for experience and doing a lot of PvP content will be a bit of a slower grind. There’s a lot to do in this game, and you can spend two-hundred hours just chopping down trees if that’s your thing.

If you are looking to level quickly and efficiently in New World, you can refer to our Town Project Board tier list. In short, it’s crucial to pick Town Project Board quests that have good time-to-experience value. You also gain experience when you level each of your Territory Standings, so zone hopping for Town Project Board grinding is ideal. Buying materials directly off the Trading Post to complete Town Project Board quests helps move through the leveling process quicker.

In my opinion, one of New World’s strongest aspects is its environment design. Taking your time to enjoy the detailed environments and area design is one of the most enjoyable parts of the game. That said, I’d avoid rushing through to the endgame. There’s not much to do there at this point other than grind your watermark score.
