Team Ninja has announced that upcoming Soulslike, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will be released on March 3, 2023.
The developer also revealed it will receive three DLC packs that add new demons, scenarios, stages, weapon times, and more to the action game set in a darker version of China’s Three Kingdom period. These will be available in a Season Pass that comes in the Digital Deluxe version of Wo Long, which also includes a digital artbook and digital mini soundtrack.
A limited edition physical version will also be available at launch, containing the and a steelbook cover, though no Season Pass.
Lots of smaller DLC packs are also available for preordering or purchasing the game in different ways. Buying either version by March 16 grants the Baihu Armour, buying the Season Pass grants the Qinglong Armour, preordering digitally grants the Zhuque Armour, and buying the steelbook version grants the Crown of Zhurong and Crown of Gonggong. It’s unclear if these items will be available through other methods.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is promised to be just as challenging as other Souls game and, specifically, Team Ninja’s two Nioh games. Producer Fumihiko Yasuda previously told IGN that “Wo Long is more massive in scale compared to our previous games set in Japan, which allowed us to show a more severe and dark world.
“The same can be said for the difficulty. There’s no doubt this will be an extremely challenging and demanding game, but we’ve come up with new ways to approach that difficulty.”
In our preview of the game, IGN said: “While Wo Long is for sure a difficult masocore title, you’ll find yourself enjoying plenty of exciting, high-speed, Chinese martial arts combat as you try again and again.”
