Game Science Studio made a splash when it revealed the action RPG Black Myth: Wukong last year in an effort to gain more attention and bring more people onto the project. The original trailer showed 13 minutes of action and the environments players would find themselves traversing once the game is released. Now, Game Science Studio has released a brand new trailer for Black Myth: Wukong to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the start of the Year of the Ox. This trailer focuses a lot on the combat but also shows some abilities players will have access to including shapeshifting and using other magic.
There are not too many details though going by the official site the inspiration does seem to be the 16th century Chinese novel Journey to The West by Wu Cheng’en. In an FAQ on the Black Myth:Wukong’s website, the developers have stated that the game will be a single purchase title but will not rule out additional DLC after the launch of the game. While a launch date is yet to be confirmed, Game Science Studio has also confirmed that there are other titles planned for the Black Myth series, though the release of those would likely depend on the success of Black Myth: Wu Kong. The reason Game Science Studio released the footage of Black Myth: Wu Kong was partly because the team needs more members.
