    Black Myth: Wukong is an action role-playing game that closely follows the events of Wu Cheng’n’s seminal novel. Journey to the West. Based on Chinese mythology and Buddhist folklore, the work follows a monk who encounters a spirit named Sun Wukong, often referred to as the Monkey King, while searching for a sacred religious text. Although its main narrative is still unknown, Game Science’s upcoming Souls Like depicts Wukong’s encounters with Yaogui, various creatures and demons in Chinese mythology, set within an oriental landscape.

    My hands-on demo begins at the base of Blackwind Mountain’s peak, in a place called the Wolf Forest, populated by lush greenery, alpine trees, and all manner of wind-blown rocks and shrines. The path to the summit is guarded by scattered groups of foxes and wolves-like humanoids who wield axes, shields, and bows. While these enemies aren’t challenging, they serve as great punching bags for learning combat fundamentals such as dodging, charged staff techniques, and basic spells like Immobilize, which freezes enemies in place during a burst attack. give

    Wukong’s primary weapon is a bō staff, called the Ruyi Jingu Bang in the influential literature, which he can shrink to the size of a needle to store inside his ear. The Monkey King commands an arsenal of weapon combos, including the ability to charge the Jingu Bang to collect focus points, allowing him to unleash lightning-heavy attacks. While you can’t store focus points gained by charging your weapon – the Wukong automatically attacks as soon as you release the button – you can do Store focus points for use later in the fight by making fairly light attacks on the enemy. Learning the flourishes of these weapons and how to use them with your growing library of mystical spells is critical to success against larger opponents like the game’s many bosses.

    While Wolf Forest has at least half a dozen optional and desirable bosses, I spend my time challenging its two toughest opponents. The first is a flame-spearing wolf named Guangxi, who takes me down and overwhelms me with flame-bending brooms and broomsticks. After defeating him on his fourth try, which I manage to do by relying on the cooldown of my animation spell, Guangxi drops his double-tipped spear, called Red Tides, which transforms into his magic staff. instead goes into one of Wukong’s empty spell slots. Upon activating the ability, Wukong momentarily transforms into the wolf I had just defeated, allowing me to use the boss’ fiery powers to infect Scorch Bean, a A status effect that sets enemies on fire and deals damage over time. Notably, Wukong’s health pool is separate from the Yaogui he sculpts, making this new ability a great tactic to use against Black Wind Mountain’s dangerous bosses when low on health.

    I run past another optional boss – a huge humanoid with an asymmetrical golden head – and maneuver up a bamboo-laden mountain ridge, eventually making it to my destination: Guanyin Temple, home of Lingsuzi. is, a building-sized canine that was assigned The mysterious character known as the Black Wind King. The towering white wolf leaps into the air, scales the entire field in seconds, and tastes my blood after a swift attack. As Lingsuzi licks his lips, I freeze him in place and launch a flurry of light attacks and focused heavy attacks. Of course, it’s a soul buff, so I die several times over the course of about five tries while slowly memorizing Yaoguai’s moves and strategies. When I finally triumphed, I equipped a rare wolf mask from Lingsuzi’s corpse, giving me a disadvantage against severely wounded enemies.

    Black Moth: Wukong seems to offer a great world of amazing character designs, boss fights that require skillful skills, and beautiful environments. I’m eagerly awaiting the game’s release, not only for its excellent combat and intelligent character design, but also to experience its take on China’s prominent folk tale.
