Die Young is an open-world game. This means that you are free to explore the locations of the island in different order. However, some actions or items are needed to progress in the story, so visiting some locations is mandatory, whereas some other places are optional. On this page, all the locations of the game are listed following an hypothetical route starting from the well in which Daphne awakes in.
The island can be divided in four big areas: Area of Deprivation, Area of Resurgence, Area of Purification, The Other Side.
If you are looking for the most efficient way to progress in the game, visit the Game Progress Route page.
Area of Deprivation
The Area of Deprivation is the first big area of the island. It starts from the Well and can be exited through the Bull Door at The Gate. An additional connecting route can be opened from The Olive Grove once Daphne crossed the Bull Door.
Area of Resurgence
The Area of Resurgence is the second area of the island. It starts from the Bull Door at The Gate and culminates at the top of the High Tower.
Area of Purification
The Area of Purification is the third area of the island. It can be visited before reaching the top of the High Tower, but the most important locations (The Pyres Beach, The Biofuel Refinery, The Underground Passage) cannot be fully explored without completing the Area of Resurgence first. This is where one of the three endings can be obtained.
The Other Side
The Other Side is the forth and last area of the island. It can be accessed for the first time through The Underworld Passage. An additional route can be opened from the northern side of the Monumental Tombs. This is where two of the three endings of the game can be obtained.
