Game Science and NVIDIA have revealed a world premier 4K gameplay trailer for Black Myth: Wukong showing off its ray tracing and DLSS effects. The developers announced one year ago that they had moved from using Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5 and released a trailer of the game’s first use of ray tracing. The new trailer not only showcases more of the game’s impressive visuals but also its combat, characters, and exploration.

Get an exclusive look at the first-ever 4K gameplay of Black Myth: Wukong with ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS.

Featuring collectibles, hidden elements, new combat and enemies, the latest Black Myth: Wukong gameplay takes you back into the mysterious forest.

Powered by GeForce RTX technology, explore this immersive and fantastic Chinese mythology world with ray tracing and NVIDIA DLSS in the upcoming action RPG from Game Science.

Based on the classical 16-century novel Journey To West, Black Myth: Wukong began when the developers contemplated the fate of the famous hero. It has taken twelve years, the creation of the indie studio Game Science and many turns for the game to reach its current state.

From the developers

Six years ago,
On April Fool’s Day by chance, we determined to develop a big-deal video game.
Another six years before that, we fiercely argued about where Sun WuKong headed to
after his Buddhahood.
Twelve years in total, the commitment we made became malarky in the end.

On countless nights of working overtime, exhaustedly, we asked ourselves half-jokingly—
How much did it matter whether Game Science exist or not?
Had any game we developed provided this world with more fun?
Had any story, character or gameplay we made ever inspired you, players?
I have to confess, we ourselves know the answer neither.

However, we have faith in the new product, which arouses our own feeling firstly,
could also touch people who share the same thoughts.
Black Myth: WuKong, an action-adventure game themed around legendary Chinese novel
Journey to the West, is the newest answer given by Game Science.

Hope you enjoy.

Black Myth: Wukong is tentatively planned to release on PC and consoles in 2023 (per its YouTube home page) but the team has also said it will only release the game when they feel satisfied with it and are focused on the performance costs of the effects as well. Game Science has also said that it is exploring options for cloud gaming services, DLC, and in-game purchases, and hopes to create a series with the game.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
