Black Myth: Wukong Trailer Shows Unreal 5 in Action

The latest Black Myth Wukong trailer shows off the game's stunning transition to Unreal 5.

Game Science released a new Black Myth: Wukong trailer, and while that might sound like standard fare on its own, this one's rather different. The new Black Myth: Wukong trailer shows off the game's new look after transitioning to Unreal Engine 5, and it's the first title to use NVIDIA's DLSS and ray tracing in the engine.

It's an impressive trailer highlighting both the technology's capabilities and how well Black Myth makes use of them.

There's the usual showy lighting effects and glimmering flames, along with flashes of ice in the air when a dragon attacks, dynamic effects from lighting the snow on fire, and the shimmering ghost of the hero as he dashes away at high speeds. Yes, dynamic snow is officially a thing now.

The trailer is a lengthy 12 minutes and, beyond the gorgeous visuals, offers a good look at several enemies standing in your way.

You'll have to content yourself with this trailer for now, though. Black Myth Wukong isn't expected to release until 2023.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
