The new ARPG of the Granblue series developed by Cygames showcased some fast-paced action in its trailers. Now, players are wondering if this Monster Hunter-like game will be open-world or not, so here’s all you need to know.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink is the new Action RPG title from Cygames set in the Granblue universe. The game’s world comes from a gacha game that has been around since 2014, and players are eagerly looking forward to its spin-offs.

The new action game is set to look and play like a Monster Hunter game, so fans are already speculating if the game will be open-world or not. With this in mind, here’s if Granblue Fantasy: Relink is an open-world game.

No, Granblue Fantasy: Relink will not be entirely open world, and will feature large open zones as part of a similar Quest system as games like Monster Hunter or Dauntless.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink areas will be full of enemies to defeat and places to explore, but each one will be separated by a loading screen. The Monster Hunter-like missions, where a party of four take down a large monster, are also set in hub maps apart from the rest of the game’s world.

Many 2023 releases and upcoming 2024 titles are starting to lean towards large open areas that can be filled with story missions and some sidequests. Players seem to agree with these decisions, as fewer games have the budget and the ideas to fill an entirely seamless open world.
