New World Overwolf Minimap: How to Download and Can It Get Me Banned?

We can all agree that the absence of a minimap in New World detriments its quality. It’s genuinely painful to locate the umpteen resources packed by the game, and this is where Redditors come to our rescue with the Overwolf minimap!

Created by Redditor u/morbrid and his pals, the Overwolf add-on brings a much-needed unofficial minimap to New World. Thanks to this mod, a small portion of the bottom-right part of your screen will be packing a functional minimap that shows resource nodes, allows you to zoom in & zoom out, and so on.

Let’s face it; always pressing ‘M’ to open the map kills the mood. The mod allows this MMORPG to manifest itself in a manner that nurtures fast and exciting gameplay. If you too want to get your hands on it, this guide is here to tell you how.

Downloading Overwolf Minimap Add-on For New World

It makes a lot of sense to be endowed with the Overwolf minimap in New World. The island of Aeternum already tries its best to make your life difficult, so it’s natural for you to look for ways that make this experience cushy.

Here’s how you can install the Overwolf minimap add-on for New World

  • Head over to Overwolf’s website.
  • Spot ‘Gamers‘ on the top-left of your screen and click on the “Appstore” drop-down.
  • Using the search icon, look for the addon by typing “New World minimap.
  • Download the addon as soon as it shows up.

Can I Get Banned for Downloading Overwolf Minimap Addon in New World?

Unfortunately, clouds of uncertainty still loom over this question. 

As of now, Amazon’s Terms of Service have not clearly specified where they draw the line, so the answer is both yes and no. The studio still hasn’t announced if they see this add-on as a mod. 

Thanks! The minimap runs on Overwolf, and it’s the only process that runs. I believe Overwolf is whitelisted on the anti-cheat, so I’d say it’s unlikely to get you banned. I understand minimaps are a bit of a grey area at the moment, so if AGS does issue a statement saying they’re not allowed, I’ll remove the app or tweak it, so it meets their TOS, rather than risk users getting banned.

Even though Overwolf is anti-cheat allowed, we still would not recommend you to download this minimap. It’s better to wait for Amazon to declare its stance on the add-on than being impatient and getting banned!

But if you like living on the edge, who am I to stop you?
