Rise of the Ronin: Is there an open world? Rise of the Ronin guide, tips

Does Rise of the Ronin offer an open-world exploration option? Our guide describes the general guidelines for traveling through all the main lands, as well as what highlights await in the game world.

Last update: 27 March 2024

Rise of the Ronin is a game that should appeal to players who prefer open worlds. We explain how big is the map, whether there is freedom in exploring the open world, as well as what locations, unique collectibles, and activities can be discovered.

What is the size of the map?

We have prepared an interactive map, thanks to which you can check the regions from Rise of the Ronin and learn about the location of important locations, quests, activities or secrets - Rise of the Ronin: Is there an open world? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. After completing the prologue of Rise of the Ronin, you hero can explore the open world. However, there is no one big world map in the game. There are 3 regions available - Yokohama, Edo and Kyoto. Each of them is a separate map.
  2. Maps of Yokohama and Edo (example in the image above) are huge. Each of them consists of several areas and their full exploration and removing the fog of war can take you quite a lot of time. Kyoto is a slightly smaller map and fully exploring it is not as time-consuming.
  3. The game unlocks the regions one by one - after completing the prologue you will go to Yokohama, at the end of chapter 1 to Edo, and later in act 2 to Kyoto. Returning to previous maps is possible, although somewhat difficult - the mechanics of revisiting old regions are described on the FAQ page How to return from Edo to Yokohama?.
