Players who own Xbox Games Pass will get Day One access to Team Ninja’s promising action adventure.
A recent tweet on the game’s official Twitter account revealed that players will be able to go hands-on “in the near future”.
While no timeframe was given, we’ll update this section once we know more.
While the trailer didn’t dive into any full mission showcases, we did get an insight into the game’s combat. Team Ninja is responsible for bringing us the Ninja Gaiden and Nioh franchises, which focus heavily on swordsmanship and fast-paced dueling.
This game seems to be taking a similar approach, albeit with an injection of fantasy and mythical beasts to defeat. Players can “overcome adversity through unique new strategies, including battle styles based on the “Five Phases.”
The game will also feature a character creator and something the dev has described as a “new morale system”, alongside online multiplayer.
According to developers Team Ninja, the game will follow “a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms.” The game’s concept comes from Bloodborne producer Masaaki Yamagiwa and Nioh producer Fumihiko Yasuda.
Wo Long is set in China during the era of the Three Kingdoms from 220 to 280 AD. The game is based on Luo Guanzhong’s 14th-century historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. However, judging from the zombies and dragon spirits we’ve seen in the game, we imagine it’s going to be a very loose adaptation of that historical novel.
Fans of Dynasty Warriors may also recognize the time period, as like many of those games, Wo Long is set during the Yellow Turban Rebellion in ancient China. However, like Nioh, we’re likely to see a supernatural twist to the tale.
We can’t wait to play Team Ninja’s next game and the other great titles shown at the Xbox & Bethesda showcase. For now, make sure to keep up with every major release coming to Xbox and PC:
