Today, KOEI TECMO Europe and developer Team NINJA released the demo to their latest masocore epic, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. The demo is available from Friday 16th September at 11:00am UTC until Monday 26th September at 06:59am UTC on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5.
The action-packed demo features a glimpse inside a dark Three Kingdoms world gone mad and the chaotic struggle to save a once beloved land now infested by demons. Featuring swordplay ripped from the Chinese martial arts, the demo showcases the strategies and swiftness of battle, while also giving gamers a taste of online multiplayer, the character creator, and in-game abilities including vertical exploration and the importance of morale. As a bonus, anyone who clears the demo will earn the special item “Crouching Dragon Helmet”, which can be equipped and used in the main game upon release. A survey will also be made available via the demo in order to collect player feedback and help in the further development of the game. Those who participate in the survey will receive an original wallpaper.
In addition, Team NINJA has created a tutorial video to help gamers get started with the finer points of the masocore experience, including techniques needed to learn everything from basic counter attacks to wielding a variety of weapons.
To celebrate the demo’s release, a “Wo Long Highlights” Twitter campaign has also begun. Follow the official Twitter account (@WoLongOfficial), and post a gameplay highlight using the hashtag #WoLongDemoEU. Ten winners will be selected to receive an original Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty t-shirt.
