I'm already down for Black Myth: Wukong, but this Year of the Ox video looks slick all the same


I won’t say no to more footage of this action-RPG

Game Science whipped up a video for its attention-grabbing action-RPG Black Myth: Wukong. It’s intended as a Chinese New Year celebration, not a preview of the “plot,” so it’s more of a visual piece.

I continue to like the way combat is shaping up, and it’s easy to imagine what it could be like to play the full version, even as we’re mostly left to piece together mythology-infused snippets and imagine the big picture. Yes, I would like to spar with a muscular two-headed rat man and zap fiends with electricity.

If it’s been a while since you’ve checked in on Black Myth: Wukong or this is your first time hearing about it the game’s website has quite a few eye-catching images. I hadn’t seen them before!

Assuming this studio can continue to staff up and hit the notes it’s hitting in pre-release footage, this journey will go to far-off places. There’s no hint of a release date, but PC and consoles are still the plan.
