Black Myth: Wukong Releases Summer 2024

    Where's this rabbit getting physical PC games in 2023?

    In celebration of the Chinese New Year, developer Game Science has released a charming stop-motion short film announcing the release window of their upcoming action RPG, Black Myth: Wukong. The visually stunning Unreal Engine 5 game is set to release in Summer 2024.

    In the short film, an anthropomorphic rabbit is excited to receive a copy of a Black Myth: Wukong in the mail. On the rabbit’s back wall is a rabbit-ized parody poster for God of War: Chains of Olympus, perhaps as a way to reference one of the team’s inspirations. Trying to run the demanding game fries the poor guy’s hardware (you’ve gotta check those minimum specs!). After a trip to the computer store and selling the clothes off his back, he returns home and builds a PC that’s ready for anything, only to be met with a countdown clock once the game finally loads. In a fit of rage, he throws his copy out the window.

    Game Science's short film Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit! announcing the Black Myth: Wukong release window

    The film then cuts to two rabbit children enjoying an intense boss fight against a giant bipedal tiger in Black Myth: Wukong. The door opens and our original gaming bunny rolls in on a wheelchair, shocked that the game is real and finally released. The camera pans to a calendar on a nearby wall, revealing that the year is 2024. It’s then that the release window of Black Myth: Wukong, Summer 2024, is formally announced.

    What platforms will Black Myth: Wukong be on?

    Black Myth: Wukong has only been officially announced for PC, but developer Game Science has also said they aim to release the action RPG for “mainstream consoles”. If “mainstream” means current and ubiquitous, we’re talking PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. As an Unreal Engine 5 title that surely has high requirements to run, it’s unlikely to ship on Nintendo’s handheld-console hybrid unless through a streaming solution, the way titles like Control and Resident Evil Village have. Stay tuned to Final Weapon and we’ll let you know as soon as there’s definitive word on Wukong‘s platforms.
