  • Moon Studios releases Early Access Hotfix 1 for its recently releases Action RPG, No Rest for the Wicked.
  • The first hotfix adds in quality of life improvements, fixes bugs, and makes numerous gameplay adjustments to mechanics like gear durability.
  • The game launched in Early Access on Steam on April 18, though fans have noticed multiple performance and gameplay related issues.

Following its Early Access launch, Moon Studios releases the first update for No Rest for the Wicked, intending to address a number of performance and gameplay issues that players have been running into. Coming off the colorful Metroidvania inspired Ori franchise, Moon Studios surprised a lot of fans when it revealed its next game, No Rest for the Wicked. Referred to as a passion project by the studio, the team is blending elements from the Dark Souls and Diablo franchises in an effort to innovate and reinvigorate the Action RPG genre as a whole.

Following its reveal at the 2023 Game Awards, Moon Studios held a major reveal stream for No Rest for the Wicked a few months later, going as far as confirming an Early Access release date. As the long awaited April 18 date finally arrived, eager players jumped into the experience and quickly noticed that the game unfortunately features a number of issues, many of which have been noted by the developer based on player feedback. As Moon Studios mentioned, the first hotfix has arrived and is aimed at improving loot, game balance, and introducing other quality of life changes.

The first update for the game takes a big swing at improving a number of gameplay related issues, adding in quality of life features to ease the frustration of some in-game mechanics. As a looter style game, gear durability plays a big role in No Rest for the Wicked and to ease fan complaints, Moon Studios has reduced repair costs and durability damage taken. The drop rate on repair powders have also been increased, which should also help players from having to break the gameplay flow in order to go repair their equipment. Other gameplay changes include stamina costs and fall damage being reduced, as well as making the Horseshoe Crab and its food slightly cheaper to buy.

Certain weapons in No Rest for the Wicked, such as the Corpse-Smeared Blade, now appears at Tier 1, and players will likely notice that Fillmore's Pre-Sacrament Loot Table has been buffed with more weapons. Saving and exiting No Rest for the Wicked could also lead to outright game crashes, which Moon has addressed in this update, along with other bug fixes to improve the overall experience.

Fans of the RPG genre have had a strong 2024 so far and No Rest for the Wicked is looking to continue that trend as it rolls forward. This update is clearly a first step for Moon Studios, who also highlighted that it is working on performance improvements as well as controller remapping features, though a hard date isn't set yet. As No Rest for the Wicked blends and introduces new mechanics not typically seen in this genre, many fans are hoping that Moon Studios can continue to refine and enhance the experience before it eventually launches in full sometime down the road.
