Black Myth: Wukong quickly rose to popularity after its 13 minute-long gameplay trailer reveal was released online. According to developer Game Science, the gameplay itself wasn't posted to show off how well the game looks, but instead to be used as a recruitment tool to request interested developers to join the team.

The Black Myth gameplay trailer got tons of people excited for the game and the gameplay seemed so well crafted that some folks began questioning its integrity. Following the speculations, a recent Twitter post has confirmed that the shown trailer was indeed actual gameplay.

Black Myth: Wukong was revealed without any prior announcements, and given how little players know about it, they have become restless as they wait to learn more. As the launch of next-gen consoles is also on the horizon, players want to know what exactly the next-gen experience feels like. At this critical moment, Black Myth: Wokung's debut has gotten players even more excited.

Calling Black Myth: Wukong's gameplay "impressive" is an understatement. The gameplay showcases smooth animations, brilliant lighting effects, great sound design, and lush environments throughout the demo. The demo was so impressive that some people were not ready to believe that it was actual gameplay and was somehow falsely manufactured. The previously mentioned Twitter post features actual gameplay footage with Game Science's CEO Feng Ji playing the same portion of the game that was shown in the gameplay demo, putting naysayers to rest.

The game is currently still in its alpha stage despite that it looks quite remakable for modern gaming standards. Black Myth: Wukong is a new take on the popular Chinese legend Sun Wukong, also known as the Monkey King. Chinese myths haven't been that popular in video games, and it will be interesting to see how Black Myth: Wukong will turn the tables in its favor.

Black Myth: Wukong is currently in developement, so expect more news as developer Game Science gets closer to release.
