OFF the beaten Path
there’s a temptation here to jump into the story and keep on truckin’ but take our advice: don’t rush it. there’s so much to be gained by exploring the world beyond the immediate storyline, and some of it - including some incredibly useful tools that’ll help you enter otherwise inaccessible areas - can only be gained by taking time to talk to the townsfolk and merchants, and helping them out with side missions. you’ll also learn that the hidden location of many secret relics and documents will only be unveiled by chatting to the locals, too, so don’t be afraid to get friendly with the neighbours. the more time you spend with them, the more treasures you’ll unearth.
