Black Myth: Wukong looks better each time we see it. It truly caught our attention last summer when it came out of nowhere and presented such a high level of fidelity from a previously unknown Chinese studio. It’s certainly fun to ogle at the vibrant characters, smooth animations, and next gen graphics. The game isn’t due until 2023, but the developers are happy to offer up another glimpse of what’s to come. Since this is a Chinese game, it should come as no surprise to see the developers welcome in the Lunar New Year with a new trailer for Black Myth: Wukong.
This trailer takes place in a markedly different environment than what we saw in the last one. Gone are the deep forests, but the aura of mystery and reverence certainly persist in this desolate setting. The trailer slowly introduces us to the setting, with several camera shots around the location. The trailer is clearly part tech demo, but it doesn’t waste too much time before getting straight into the gameplay.
Still, it’s important to take note of Game Science Studio’s impressive implementation of Unreal Engine 4. Not too many games have managed to pull off this level of fidelity before, which shows that Black Myth offers a glimpse at what’s to come in the next couple years. I can hear my PC crying already.
Get lost in the action
I have to admit that the visual effects really make this game look worth playing, however, the gameplay looks solid so far too. The souls-like vibe is clear, but there are a few different mechanics going on as well. Which is good, because nobody wants a copycat. Better yet, the bosses look varied and fun to fight. It really will blow me away if this seemingly new Chinese developer manages to successfully pull this game off.
While we remain wary about what to expect in the final product, Black Myth: Wukong has managed to knock it out of the park with two different trailers now. You can be sure we’ll keep up with this game as it moves closer to completion. You can check out more at the game’s official website.
