Back in 2020 Chinese independent developer Game Science Studio made some big waves when they revealed Black Myth: Wukong, a gorgeous Souls-style action-RPG that draws inspiration from the classic epic Journey to the West. Black Myth made further headlines in 2021, when it became one of the first games to commit to using Unreal Engine 5. Since then, we haven’t heard as much about the game – how is Black Myth: Wukong coming together? Does the game still wow like it did back in 2020 now that more current-gen games, and even the first few Unreal Engine 5 titles, have arrived?
Well, today at the big Geoff-Keighley-produced Gamescom Opening Night Live show, we got a fresh look at Black Myth: Wukong. The trailer largely focuses on what looks to be a series of boss fights, including a big scorpion, tiger man, and guy decked out in bones. The action looks quite intense and it’s all set to a tune being played by a guy… without a head. I’m not up enough on my Chinese Mythology to know what that’s about, but it certainly catches your attention. You can check the trailer out for yourself, below.
Still looking fairly impressive! We’ll see if the game delivers on the gameplay front though. Need to know more about Black Myth: Wukong? Here are the game’s key features…
