To deny it would be ridiculous, China imposes itself in our daily lives. The country appears more and more in our video games, its decisions weigh more and more on our lives. Last year, it was often illustrated in our news feeds thanks to its fight against the epidemic, the recovery of its economy, the treatment it inflicts on its people (and its minorities) but also in the video game through titles like Genshin Impact, Pokémon Unite and Black Myth: Wukong, the game that interests us today.
The title appeared for the first time at the end of last summer and caused the effect of a bomb on the internet. The reason ? A sublime and explosive 13-minute gameplay video that has aligned millions of views in a handful of hours, this one has impressed, and even in the profession (we quote in particular Cory Barlog, director of God of War 2018). A buzz that Game Science (his studio) would have preferred to do without (he said) before coming back to the charge for the Chinese New Year.
Yes, new year = new trailer. A few hours ago the small Chinese studio (we’re talking about 30 people after all) posted an all-new trailer for Black Myth: Wukong . And, once again, the trailer which introduces us to the King of the Apes struggling with new enemies, does not have to be ashamed. The bar is high, very high, and so is the hype. It is therefore for these reasons that Game Science calls for caution. By the studio’s admission, this video is produced for the current event and does not reflect the history of this upcoming work.
What do you think ? Has the game of Game Science captured your attention? Black Myth: Wukong is expected on all current media at a date as yet unknown.
