Is No Rest for the Wicked Open World?

Is No Rest for the Wicked open world? Since the announcement of the game some time ago, many have started to wonder whether No Rest for the Wicked is an open-world game or not. The developers haven't released specific details about it, but we can make some guesses about what we've seen so far.


In this article, therefore, we will try to give as exhaustive an answer as possible to this question, so that you all know what type of game you are facing. If you are curious to know what we have to tell you about it, all you have to do is continue reading this article.

Is No Rest for the Wicked Open World?

Both on the game's official website and on its Steam page, there are no references to the fact that the game is an open world. It is simply described as a dark fantasy action RPG in which combat is certainly a focal point of the entire work. For this reason, many continue to be confused about the structure of the game itself. But there are some clues that can lead us to an answer.

The fact that the word “open-world” appears practically nowhere is already a clue to what the game is. In fact, when it comes to an open-world game, the developers are certainly not trying to hide it, but rather they try to highlight it precisely to underline the fact that there is a map (more or less large) that players can decide to explore. However, this is not the case with No Rest for the Wicked.

No Rest for the Wicked

During a recent event where people from the development team previewed a portion of the game to show off some of its gameplay mechanics, there was absolutely no mention of the fact that it was an open-world game. Indeed, from what we have been able to see, No Rest for the Wicked seems to take inspiration from the Dark Souls series (with a pinch of Diablo).

Even the progression that seems to characterize the game is actually very similar to an open map game, in which you have the opportunity to freely explore vast areas that are not actually interconnected with each other. However, that doesn't mean there won't be secret areas to discover and explore. The developers themselves, in fact, have confirmed the presence of hidden areas and that it will therefore also be very important to dedicate yourself to exploration (always within the limits of the map).

In short, although No Rest for the Wicked is not a real open-world game, this does not mean that it is not worth giving it a chance. From what we have been able to see, it is a very good game, certainly different from the previous works of the development team (they are the same developers of the Ori saga), but with great potential. As if that wasn't enough, the developers have announced a roadmap that will see, among other things, the addition of a multiplayer mode.
