Black Myth: Wukong finally has a PlayStation Store listing, showing off what we can expect. The game will release on August 20, 2024, and looks like the soulslike we were all waiting for. While you can’t pre-order yet, it’s only a few months away, so you should be able to pre-order soon.

According to the PlayStation Store listing, the game Black Myth: Wukong is inspired by the classic Chinese novel Journey To The West. In the game, players take on the role of the Destined One, a chosen hero who embarks on a westward journey full of challenging combat, exploration, and lore discovery. The story aims to uncover hidden truths behind the legendary events of Journey To The West.

Journey To The West is a well-known novel around the world. For those who don’t know, it inspired games like Monkey Magic and the popular manga Dragon Ball.

The game’s world takes inspiration from Chinese mythology, so those who are familiar with it will be happy to see it all. Players can look forward to encountering a variety of foes, each with their own strengths and designs. The game hints at these enemies having deeper motivations and stories to uncover, adding another layer to the gameplay.

The game seems to really focus on combat, with the description on the PlayStation Store talking about intense battles against tough enemies. It looks like mastering staff fighting is a big part of the game, but like most games in this genre, there should be a lot of variety. For example, players will also have access to lots of spells, abilities, and different weapons and gear. That means you can customize and try different things to find a combat style that works for you.

Since the official PlayStation Store listing is up, we know that the game has most likely gone Gold or is close to it.
