Black Myth Wukong is being developed by a Chinese game studio called Game Science. Founded by a group of former Tencent employees, the team was inspired to pursue a project of this size when they saw how successful Triple-A games on Steam were among gamers in China. In fact, some are describing this game as one of China’s first significant Triple-A efforts.
In Black Myth Wukong Players only have the staff to use so far, and if the game follows canon, it’s the only one Wukong has. The Ruyi Jingu Bang or the Gold-Banded Cudgel has a few skills that make it akin to the Blades of Chaos.
Black Myth Wukong casts players of Sun Wukong, or the Monkey King. While Sun Wukong looks to have some pretty solid kung fu skills himself, he can also transform into different forms, including a big hulking beast and a buzzing insect. Black Myth’s debut trailer is impressive, featuring lush, moody environments and impressive enemy designs, all apparently running in real time.
