No Rest for the Wicked Launch Details and Trailer

Hi everyone!

The launch of No Rest for the Wicked is only a few days away! Thank you for the support as we approach Early Access release on April 18th at 9am PT | 12pm ET | 5pm BMT | 6pm CEST.

Get excited as we tick down the minutes to launch with our Early Access launch trailer.

Launch Information
Though this information is already out in the world, we’d like to share with you the game’s launch plans.

When No Rest for the Wicked launches into Early Access on April 18, commencing alongside it is an affiliate program where you can support your favorite streamer or content creator and get the game for a reduced price of $31.99 by using their affiliate links. Supporting a creator will get you the best possible price for the game.

By visiting a participating creator or streamer’s channel and clicking on their No Rest for the Wicked affiliate link, it’ll take you to the Private Division Store where you’ll be able to buy the game on Steam (when your purchase is complete you will receive a Steam Key) at the affiliate price and the creator will receive compensation from Private Division or its affiliates!

Here is a list of just some of the confirmed streamers and creators who’re part of the program and who you can support. It’s not an exhaustive list, so be sure to check your favorite streamer on April 18 and see if they’re participating!

On Steam, the game will be available at a special introductory price of $35.99 USD | £31.95 GBP | €35.99 EUR*. Both will run for a period of two weeks following release until May 2, 2024 at 9am PT.

The game will be available for $39.99 USD | £34.99 GBP | €39.99 EUR* after this two-week period ends.

We’d also like to confirm that No Rest for the Wicked will not have any microtransactions. And, the game’s single player experience will not require an online connection nor contain any anti-cheat software. We’re dedicated to providing you all with a complete, seamless experience!

Regional Pricing
We’ve seen a lot of questions about regional pricing. We understand that some countries experience economic factors that make a direct conversion from the dollar unfair for folks in those countries. We’ve instead taken a look at Steam’s recommended pricing, as well as a range of recent releases to land at regional prices that are hopefully considerate of the local situation and offer great value for our Early Access content.

See you on the 18th!

*Pricing based on Private Division’s SRP. Actual retail price may differ.

Wicked Inside Recap

Missed Wicked Inside? We’ve got you covered! No Rest for the Wicked launches into Steam Early Access April 18, 2024.

Thank you to everyone who watched as we explored No Rest for the Wicked, and to the folks that gave us their early impressions. If you’d like to watch Wicked Inside, check it out here.

For those who’d like a recap, we’ve got you covered!

A Story of Politics and Plague
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.

A Hand-Crafted World
Isola Sacra is a living, breathing world that has been painstakingly hand-crafted. Traverse through vibrant, seamless, interactive environments: if something looks climbable, it is, if an object is too thin to walk over, you may just need to balance your way across. Each step, climb, and jump should be intentional. We’ve abandoned the traditional point-and-click in favor of a WASD or controller control scheme. Searching every inch may prove fruitful, revealing secret areas and loot.

Sacra is everchanging. Return to previously explored areas to find new threats to tackle and resources to scavenge. Each time you visit a region, a drastically different experience will be waiting.

Play Your Way
No Rest for the Wicked uses a soft class system, meaning priority is on weapons rather than picking a specific class/role. Leveling up earns stat points that you can put into: HP, intelligence, dexterity, strength, and stamina. Stats like intelligence, dexterity, and strength can directly make weapon types more powerful. We want players to be able to create any build imaginable - even ones we haven’t thought of!

Devastating Combat
With our animation-driven combat system, attacks should be planned and deliberate. To overcome opponents, watch for telegraphed behaviors and the opportune moment to strike. Parry incoming blows that put enemies into a temporary weakened state. Movement and timing are also important. Your movement speed determines the dodge action and don’t fret, all have invincibility frames:

  • For the fast and light on their feet, quickstep out of the way of incoming attacks.
  • For those who go at a balanced, measured speed, dodge roll to evade.
  • For the slow-and-mighty, while more susceptible to attacks due to a slower dodge animation, can counteract by shoulder bashing enemies.

Weapons are unique, no two are alike. Each weapon has its own stance, can have affixes, and can be optimized by various vendors to suit your needs. Imbue them with runes that add additional effects! In combat, weapons are an extension of your body - timing, spacing, weight, and movement must work in harmony.

Rebuild What Has Been Lost
Along your journey you’ll come across Sacrament, the capital of Isola Sacra. A war-torn place, but you can help restore it to its former glory. Make the town your own by purchasing property and decorating it to your heart’s content. With a range of purchasable properties and a gridless interior design system, create a unique place to call home. Fish on the shores, fell trees, mine ore, and more. These resources can be used to craft new gear, meals, home furniture, or even make improvements to Sacrament.

You are in control of how Sacrament evolves.

Looking Ahead
No Rest for the Wicked enters Steam Early Access on April 18th, 2024.

Here’s what to expect as we progress through development:
