As for the game itself, Black Myth: WuKong is a third-person game that is based on Journey to the West, a Chinese novel published in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty that follows the travels of the Tang dynasty Buddist monk Xuanzang, who travelled to "Western Regions" (Central Asia and India) to gather sacred texts.

The novel has strong ties to Chinese mythology and Buddism, as the monk was tasked by Gautama Buddha to carry out his pilgrimage to the "Western Regions" and is accompanied by three disciples; Sun Wukong, Zhu Bajie, and Sha Wujing.

Black Myth: WuKong is launching on August 20 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC.
