Black Myth: Wukong: new trailer reveals bosses, enemies, area and spells

Must read


Black myth: Wukong – the Chinese indie action RPG that garnered a lot of attention when it was announced last year – has gotten a new gameplay trailer, featuring a number of fresh elements. Released to celebrate the Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of the Ox, developer Game Science makes it clear that the trailer does not show a section of the game’s intended story. However, it does show gameplay never seen before, including Included a new area, filled with types of enemies, bosses, and spells that we’ve never seen before. Check out the new gameplay belowSet in a desert area covered with dead plants and dotted with temple-shaped buildings, we see fast-paced battles against acrobatic wolf-like humanoids, a rat wielding a spear and a shield, which appears to be love at first sight. . mage, and a swarm of miniature red-eyed attackers. We also see a number of boss-like enemies, from a giant, meaty mouse-like creature, to a two-headed fire-breathing rat-like being, to a towering humanoid ox.

We also see the player-character (who may or may not be the real Wukong of Chinese tales) use a set of new spells to fight them: transform into a skull-filled walking boulder to deflect ranged attacks, freeze a charging enemy in place, and knock them back (somewhat reminiscent of Breath of the Wild’s Stasis ability) , ward off multiple enemies and transform into three lightning-wielding creatures for an aerial attack.

A caption specifies that “This video is specially produced to celebrate the Year of the Ox, it does not represent a real intrigue”. However, it seems unlikely that any of the above were designed just for the trailer, meaning they will likely be implemented into the final game in different ways.

Black Myth: Wukong – 11 screenshots

This is the first new gameplay of Black Myth since the 13-minute announcement video, which enjoyed incredible popularity on the internet Last year. In September, Game Science told IGN that it planned to be silent “for a long time” to work on the game – this version appears to be just to celebrate Chinese New Year with fans, rather than signaling that we’ll learn a lot more about the game.
