Black Myth: Wukong Is The First Of A Trilogy, Says Game Science
Black Myth: Wukong caused quite the uproar when it began circulating the web with a 13-minute long gameplay trailer that showed off its spectacular combat and graphics. In fact, the public was so impressed by the footage shown that more than 10-thousand resumes were handed in to the studio – in-person and online.
Game Science divulged a number of details on their upcoming game with IGN’s Charles Young. Designed with the intent to highlight the iconic Journey to the West folktale with a dark, gritty aesthetic, Game Science has grand plans for the game. Though it won’t launch for another three years, the studio plans on creating future games that span different stories in Chinese mythology. According to Young, Game Science wants to build a Chinese Black Myth Universe comparable to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Due to the level of detail and the relatively small development team Game Science has working on Black Myth: Wukong – 30 to be exact – the hours of gameplay won’t be nearly as lengthy as some might expect. The game’s producer, Feng Ji, revealed that the game will feature more than 15 hours of gameplay experience, but didn’t disclose how many more hours it would be.
Additionally, Black Myth: Wukong will feature more than 100 enemy types, three different monkey characters that players will have to differentiate as the true Wukong, and multiple transformations that the main character can undertake. The game has been in development for two years so far and Game Science doesn’t plan to release it for another few years.
As of right now, the game is being designed as a “premium console game” and the team plans on hiring approximately 10-15 more developers to create the game. However, to prevent too much from leaking to the public, the company plans to “go quiet for a long time.” So it might be a while before we receive a new update on Black Myth: Wukong. Either way, we’re excited to see whatever Game Science throws our way next!
