Black Myth: Wukong
We have some new intel for Black Myth: Wukong about how the game is being made and the various other things we can expect in Black Myth: Wukong
After Black Myth: Wukong took the internet by storm, we all were left with a little bit to ponder on and speculate from based on what we had. It was a nice and beefy thirteen minutes of visuals and gameplay to take in but there was still a whole lot to be left to the imagination. It is kind of the way things go in the industry and we cannot always get an announcement to launch as we all like it. Thankfully, it looks like a bit more for Black Myth: Wukong is out there for us to take in and learn about for the game. Not in the way of new gameplay or visuals, but in the way of a few more details we might have missed out on before or just know now from all of this.
It is interesting to find out that what we have here for Black Myth: Wukong already is a slice from two years of work and a team of thirty working on it. That does mean that we will have a few more years to wait until we get to see it in our homes as Game Science thinks it will be at least three more years. All to give us a nice fifteen hours of gameplay with various ways to go about taking down the hundreds of different enemies out there. All from the point of view of three different Wukong versions we had a small look at when the news first hit us all. It is interesting to know and see, but I think those are the bigger point that we have out of the long list just below.
