Black Myth: Wukong is an upcoming action RPG developed by the Chinese studio Game Science. After showcasing the title’s breathtaking graphics and impactful combat in a surprise announcement last year, here’s all we know about the title.

It’s not very often that an RPG developed by an indie game developer generates so much hype and excitement among players. Seemingly out of the blue, Chinese game developer Game Science released a 13-minute gameplay trailer back in 2020 of their upcoming RPG Black Myth: Wukong, and it’s fair to say it took the internet by storm. It also contains Soulslike elements.

Without further ado, let’s check out everything we know about the game and when we can expect it to release.

Although this will be disappointing for some, the developers have made it clear on their website, translated by Gematsu, that they’ll only release the game when they’re fully satisfied that the experience is polished and finished.

“While we will not necessarily need 500 years to finish, we will ship it only when we feel satisfied as players.” They continue, even hinting at the possibility of a series of games in the future: “After all, more works in the Black Myth series are in serious planning.”

Black Myth: Wukong story and plot

At this point in time, we know very little about the specifics of the game’s story. Game Science has remained tight-lipped on that aspect of the game so we can only go off what we’ve seen in the two official trailers.

What we do know, is that the game is based on the book ‘Journey to the West’ and revolves around Sun Wukong, a legendary mythic figure in Chinese folklore. Known for his strength, agility, and ability to shift into various forms, Wukong is an incredibly powerful being.

As the title is far away from release, it’s extremely unlikely the game will arrive on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, but we’ll have to wait and see to be completely sure.

It’s obvious Game Science is looking to push the graphical capabilities of all game systems to the max with this title, so it should be a sight to behold when it finally arrives.
