Games don't grow on trees.

No Rest For The Wicked, the slick-looking isometric action RPG from the folks at Moon Studios – creators of the excellent Ori and the Blind Forest/Ori and the Will of the Wisps – recently had its own dedicated presentation where studio co-founders Thomas Mahler and Gennadiy Korol took a deep dive into the game.

Along with revealing a whole host of new details including its world, narrative and visual style as well as combat, progression and gameplay systems, the team also unveiled the game’s initial launch date of April 18th, which is when it will arrive on PC in “early access” form. The game will go through a number of major updates which Moon Studios outlined in a roadmap, before finally launching in full across PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S at a later date.

The first of the game’s updates will include multiplayer functionality, while the second and then final major updates will continue to add content and features.

“The year is 841 – King Harol is dead. Rumors begin to emerge about the return of a great plague known as the Pestilence. You are a Cerim, a member of an ancient sect devoted to vanquishing the plague. Called to investigate these rumors, you board a merchant ship to the backwater Isola Sacra. While en route, a rebel group known as the Risen seizes the ship – leaving it wrecked as it collides into the island’s rocks. Washed up on the shores of Isola Sacra, you wake up naked and unarmed. As you find your bearings, you end up caught between a vast political struggle and a fight for survival.” – Moon Studios.
