Earlier this year, Nioh developer Team Ninja announced its new action-RPG title, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. Thanks to a recent Twitter post breaking down its various features, we now know it will include character creation, challenging gameplay, online multiplayer and much more.
Team Ninja took to Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty‘s official Twitter account to list the various features that will be included in the game when it launches next year. Like Nioh, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will feature character creation which is excellent news. Additionally, the studio’s trademark challenging gameplay will make a return. A new morale system will be implemented too that will, according to producer Fumihiko Yasuda, influence the death mechanics in some way.
In the same interview back in June, Yasuda talked about Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty having faster gameplay than Nioh:
“The action is speedier than Nioh, and you can do things such as jump into an enemy and then launch over them. That being said, we did want to maintain that feeling of being in control of an actual human being, so there won’t be too many flashy jumps or wire action. In that sense I guess you could say it is more down to earth.”
Other features mentioned in the new post include weapons used with Chinese martial arts, famous warlords from the Three Kingdoms, creatures and enemies lifted from Chinese mythology, sorcery and a free gameplay trial that is expected to arrive in the near future.
In related news, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty was originally announced as coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. However, Team Ninja quickly clarified that it will also launch on PS4 and Xbox One. Best of all, it’s also coming day one to Xbox Game Pass.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty releases in early 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
