Wukong gets 2024 release window
Black Myth: Wukong is an action-adventure game currently under development by Chinese game development studio Game Science. The game is based on a 16th-century Chinese novel. Journey to the West.
Players take on the role of Sun Wukong, a character from Chinese mythology who takes the form of a monkey with supernatural powers and must embark on a perilous journey full of dangerous enemies.
Based on gameplay footage released in 2020 and 2021, Black Myth: Wukong takes mechanical inspiration from the Souls-like genre, offering difficult, precise combat and fast-paced gameplay. The videos feature the titular character dodging and parrying attacks from grotesque monsters, wielding weapons, and transforming through supernatural powers.
Black Myth: Wukong was originally slated for a 2023 release, but a new video posted by the developers confirms it’s been pushed back to 2024. This might come as an unfortunate surprise for some who were looking forward to the game. This is just the latest in a long line of games that have been postponed to meet quality expectations and other internal factors, a trend that seems to have picked up in recent years.
Particular attention was paid to the game’s graphics, which runs on the Unreal Engine 5. This latest version of the Unreal Engine makes it possible to develop extremely detailed environments and other stunning visual effects. The game also supports Nvidia’s DLSS technology, which produces high-resolution graphics without sacrificing performance as long as the player has one of their flagship RTX cards.
As reported by Eurogamer, Black Myth: Wukong developer Game Science was previously the subject of controversy after it was discovered that comments made by studio founder and CEO Féng Ji on Chinese social media site Weibo in 2021 contained misogynist and homophobic content.
