Like what Team NINJA have done with Nioh and Ninja Gaiden? Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is coming and it’ll be hitting Xbox, PlayStation and PC, dropping Day One into Game Pass.
From KOEI TECMO Europe and famed developer Team NINJA (Nioh, Ninja Gaiden) come the first details of an epic new supernatural Three Kingdoms thriller – Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. It’s currently in development for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and on PC via Windows and Steam, with the schedule currently set for an early 2023 release. If that’s not exciting enough, the game will be available day one via Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty follows the dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. It’ll see players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.
Put together as a joint creation by Team NINJA producers Fumihiko Yasuda (Nioh) and Masaaki Yamagiwa (Bloodborne), Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty key game features will include:
- Demons in the Kingdom – A dark fantasy set during the chaotic Three Kingdoms period, the narrative vividly tells the tale of a militia soldier’s strenuous fight for survival during a Later Han Dynasty infested with demons. It’s madness in the Three Kingdoms like never before!
- Awaken the Power Within – Defeat deadly enemies to boost morale and awaken the power from within! Overcome adversity through unique new strategies, including battle styles based on the “Five Phases”.
- Live by the Sword – Renowned for ruthless strikes that can change the tide of battle in an instant, sword practitioners of the Chinese martial arts gracefully change pace as they shift between offensive and defensive manoeuvres. Overwhelm opponents with a flurry of force in a series of intense and bloody battles while learning the precision and skill necessary to become a true master of the sword.
