Can You Play New World on your Phone?

Yes, you can play New World through your phone. Here we walk through step by step how to use your phone to wirelessly stream and control your New World account. This method might be challenging for PvP combat, but it certainly is ideal for cutting trees, mining, and harvesting on the go.

How to Play New World on Your Phone Using Steam Link

1. Download Steam Link on your Phone or Tablet

Go to the Google Play or Apple Store on your phone or tablet and search for “Steam Link”. Download and install their application.

2. Make sure Steam is open on your PC. Then Open the Steam Link app on your phone.

Once the Steam Link app is open, you can add a computer. Sometimes, the phone will automatically detect your PC, and your Steam App on your PC will pop up and it will be ready to insert a PIN. Take the PIN displayed on your phone and type it in your Steam PC app.

If your Steam program on your PC does not automatically pop up with an insert PIN prompt, go to Settings > Remote Play > Pair Steam Link. This will bring up the prompt for you to insert the PIN.

Once your Steam Link app has been connected to your PC wirelessly, it will bring you to a screen where you can click “Start Playing”. Clicking this button will create the live connection to your PC and bring you to the next step.
