New Black Myth: Wukong gameplay revealed

A cutscene from Black Myth: Wukong was also shared.

Black Myth: Wukong is back with another look at its gameplay, and this time the developers have also shared a six-minute cutscene from the game. The gameplay video features fights against two different enemies in a forest before ending with an exciting boss battle. Various abilities of the protagonist are shown off, including transformations into a flying insect and some type of giant rock monster.

The cutscene offers us our first look at the game outside of combat and introduces new characters. The cinematography and music are spot-on, and the spider monster revealed at the end is wonderfully grotesque.

Black Myth: Wukong was originally announced back in August 2020 with a 13-minute gameplay video. It quickly grabbed the attention of gamers and the gaming press with its beautiful visuals and intense soulslike gameplay. Its setting and story are inspired by the 16th-century novel Journey to the West and will feature creatures from Chinese folklore.

No firm release date is set yet for Black Myth: Wukong, but it’s expected to come out in 2023 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC. The gameplay video notes the footage is from a pre-alpha build of the game, so I wouldn’t be surprised if that 2023 window turns into 2024 or beyond.
