Black Myth Wukong: Gameplay, Trailer, Release Date Status, Story And Much More
Black Myth: Wukong may not be a household name yet, but judging by its recent announcement and gameplay trailer, it’s already garnering a lot of attention. This is Chinese indie developer Game Science’s first major project, and it’s incredibly ambitious.
Who Is The Developer Of Black Myth: Wukong?
The studio behind Black Myth is Game Science, a Chinese indie studio based in Hangzhou and Shenzhen.
Founded in 2014 by former Tencent developers. Previous titles include free-to-play mobile and his PC games 100 Heroes and Art of War: Red Tides.
When Is The Release Date of Black Myth: Wukong?
No release date has been announced at this time, but Game Science is aiming for a PC and console release. His FAQ on that website says it “shouldn’t last 500 years,” so hopefully we’ll see Black Myth: Wukong sooner or later.
Black Myth: Wukong’s Story-Line
While we don’t have many specific details about Black Myth’s story at this time, we know it’s based on the classic Chinese tale Journey to the West, one of “the four masterpieces” of classical Chinese literature. A portion of this original story focuses on Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King, who appears to be the main character in Black Myth: Wukong.
Main Character Of The Story
In Journey to the West, Son Goku is known for his incredible speed and strength, as well as his ability to transform into various animals and objects, all of which were showcased in the Black Mythology gameplay trailer. He wields a magical black iron staff that can extend and retract at the command of its owner.
