Black Myth: Wukong is a third-person action RPG coming from Game Science studio which can be simply named as one of the best-looking upcoming games from what we can see during its first gameplay trailer.

Chinese game developers have truly made huge progress over the last few years. Currently, there are a bunch of anticipated games under the development process at Chinese studios, including Boundary, Bright Memory: Infinite, and the recently announced Black Myth: Wukong. One strong similarity between all those projects is their undeniably incredible, next-gen looking graphics.

The very first footage from the pre-alpha build of Balck Myth: Wukong shows off 13 minutes of its gameplay and combat. The game’s story and the setting are an adaptation from the famous Chinese novel, Journey to the West. Playing as Monkey King, you will explore a fantasy world populated with human-like animals and warriors.

The game features third-person melee combat, with a quite deep progression system that will allow you to learn and use over 70 different abilities throughout your whole experience in the game. The gameplay above shows off some of the mentioned abilities like turning into a bee or freezing your enemies.

Not many details about the gameplay have been shared so much, like whether the game will be a single-player focused experience or we get to see some co-op options as well.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Currently, there’s no release window for Black Myth: Wukong, but it will be available on PC. There’s been no word on console versions yet. The game has been developed on Unreal Engine 4, and it looks amazingly detailed in its pre-alpha footage.

You can pay a visit to the game’s official website which is totally in Chinese, so it’s a bit hard to understand what’s going on in the world of Black Myth: Wukong, but at least you can check out more screenshots and brief clips from the game.
