Independent studio Leenzee Games published the first gameplay trailer of WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers, a soulslike game, whose story is set in the dark far-east setting of imperial China. The game is powered by Unreal Engine and despite the early stage of development it looks really promising. Immediately you can watch the inspiration with such titles as Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and the appearance of the interface in the video looks like pulled straight out of the first one. For some unknown reason the devs placed the teaser at the very end of the video, so it's worth watching it first (16:53).
What do we know about the story? The main character wakes up from a coma being a victim of a mysterious plague, her left arm is covered with black feathers. Only a few villagers remained healthy or survived the attacks of the infected creatures. The victims of the disease grow feathers and their bodies and minds become deformed. Thus begins the protagonist's journey in search of a way to save the villagers and herself.
Eighteen minutes of footage show the main character fighting with a sword, using a gun like in Bloodborne, (8:30) and a huge axe (10:32). There was also a boss fight (13:40). The appearance and operation of gear was shown (7:33), unfortunately all descriptions of the items in the material are in Chinese.
No exact release date of WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers was given, but the devs' entry suggests that work on the game will last another three years. The game will appear on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X.
