The early access of No Rest for the Wicked will arrive later than expected. The new game from the creators of Ori is delayed slightly, according to a recent financial report.
Moon Studios has established itself as one of the most important independent studios thanks to their excellent work on Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Now, fans are eagerly anticipating their new project.
Introduced at the last edition of The Game Awards, No Rest for the Wicked has become a highly anticipated title for 2024. The dark fantasy action RPG will be coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC this year, but it will be arriving later than expected.
PC players will have to wait a little longer for the early access release of No Rest for the Wicked. In their recent quarterly financial report, Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Private Division, the game’s publisher, has indicated a delay.
No Rest for the Wicked in early access will arrive sometime in the second quarter of 2024, which means it has been delayed for a few extra months. While the reason has not been specified, more details are expected to be shared on March 1.
The story of No Rest for the Wicked
Do you want to know what this game is about? No Rest for the Wicked is an isometric RPG with a highly attractive art style that incorporates elements of medieval dark fantasy and very interesting “Shakespearean” touches. Here is the synopsis:
Year 841, King Harol has died. The news of his death spreads throughout the kingdom, and the crown passes to Magnus, his arrogant son, who has never set foot on the battlefield. To make matters worse, the pestilence, a cursed plague that had been eradicated for a thousand years, has returned and corrupts everything and everyone it touches, devastating the land it passes through.
The madrigal Seline, an ambitious and ruthless figure of the church, believes that the pestilence will give her the opportunity to prove her worth in the eyes of her god. All these forces converge in Sacra, where rebel groups and the local government fight to take control of the decaying ruins of the island.
Remember, No Rest for the Wicked will be coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2024. At the time, the creator of Ori and the Blind Forest was very ambitious about their next game: “Ori was our Mario, this is our Zelda.”
