Publisher Koei Tecmo and developer Team NINJA just announced that they will be releasing a short demo for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty that will run on all available platforms this February 24, 2023.
Upon finishing the Wo Long demo, the save data can then be carried over to the full game when it launches. To be specific, players who clear the demo will acquire the Crouching Dragon Helmet upon getting the full version of the game.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Wo Long is an upcoming action-RPG from Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo, the folks behind the Nioh games. Its premise is described as:
184 AD, Later Han Dynasty China. The land is overcome by chaos and destruction. The imperial dynasty that prospered for many years is now about to collapse.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is a dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.
Wo Long refers to a crouching dragon, and also refers to a hero or person of greatness who is not yet known. This is the story of officers, who will later become heroes, during their ‘unknown’ period, and also the story of a protagonist’s rise from being a ‘nobody’.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will release for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Store on March 3, 2023 worldwide. Additionally, it will also become available via Xbox Game Pass.
