Everything We Know About Hollow Knight: Silksong's Quest System

If you haven't played Hollow Knight, you missed one of the best games of 2017. If you have explored the beloved Metroidvania, then chances are you are eager to get your hands on its sequel, Hollow Knight: Silksong. Although it might be closer to release than everyone thought, fans are still waiting for an actual launch date


Considering that Hollow Knight: Silksong quickly expanded from DLC to a full sequel, it's understandable that Team Cherry might need a little extra time to make sure the new game is fully realized. As the title remains in development, you may be wondering what you can expect.

Silksong will present fans with a new protagonist named Hornet, whose combat moves will help set this game apart from the first. With a new character bringing fresh abilities to the series, one may wonder if the quest system will change as well. This is everything that has been revealed about the quest system in Hollow Knight: Silksong.

Hollow Knight: Silksong keeps quests organic, but adds something new

Over on ResetEra, a user was kind enough to highlight a few details mentioned in the February 2021 edition of Edge magazine, including insight into how the quest system will work. While the team has assured gamers that Hollow Knight: Silksong will not get rid of the organic form of progression fans loved from the first game, there will be notice boards to help you tally your completed quests. Some may see these as a welcome addition that will make it easier to complete the game, however, there are Hollow Knight enthusiasts who are a bit wary.


One Redditor expressed concern over the notice boards, "because all the side quests in Hollow Knight [were] so well integrated and unique that it feels just like a part of the world exploration." This user was worried that the notice boards would affect the organic flow of quests and unlocking new areas, and others seemed to share their sentiment.

The ResetEra post also clarified that there are a bunch of different areas to explore outside the main Citadel expedition, which could imply an even broader scope of quests. It's possible that the notice boards will tie into this aspect of the game — but fans will have to wait and see.
