Game Science has released a new trailer for their highly anticipated single player action RPG, Black Myth: Wukong, to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
According to the developer, the video was edited specifically to celebrate the important anniversary, and would therefore not represent the real state or main storyline of the game. Nonetheless, this short trailer is highly spectacular, it reflects what we had been able to admire at the first appearance of the title, now last year.
Black Myth: Wukong is a 3D action game developed in China by Game Science, which also got a big resonance in our part after the first trailer, which showed really excellent graphics.
The video shows us different gameplay sequences, including some of the enemies that the protagonist will have to face in his adventure, as well as some creatures that we assume will be part of the bosses that we will have to defeat during the epic of Wukong.
Set in a desert area overgrown with dead plants, and dotted with temple-like buildings, the trailer features frantic battles against wolf-like acrobatic humanoids, a mouse armed with a spear and shield, and what appears to be a wizard.
The protagonist, who is supposed to be the true Wukong of Chinese folk tales, uses a variety of new spells to fight, and transforms into a walking boulder full of skulls to deflect ranged attacks, freeze a charging enemy and push them away, as well as parrying creature attacks.
A caption clarifies that “This video is specially produced for celebrating Chinese New Year. It does not represent actual plot.” However, it seems unlikely that any of the elements above were designed simply for the trailer, meaning they will likely be implemented in the final game in different ways.
Black Myth: wukong is scheduled to release at the end of 2021, although there is still no actual launch date, for PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.
