Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the upcoming Soulslike from Nioh developer Team Ninja, is getting a second demo on February 24 that will allow you to transfer save data to the full game.
Team Ninja announced the news on Twitter, and it confirmed that the demo will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Furthermore, those who complete the demo will be able to obtain the “Crouching Dragon Helmet” DLC in the full game.
This will give fans another chance to try out Wo Long, which is especially great as Team Ninja took the feedback from the first demo to heart and, in our opinion, already vastly improved the experience.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will be released on the above platforms and Xbox Game Pass on March 3, 2023, and will welcome fans to a darker version of China’s Three Kingdom period. However, don’t expect a warm welcome.
“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,” Producer Fumihiko Yasuda previously told IGN. “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 final preview of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, we said that we came away “realizing that it innovates on the exploration loop in Soulsborne games more than anything else. While the game’s challenging combat is as stellar as you would expect from a Team Ninja game, it is the Morale Rank system that truly feels like it’s shaking things up.”
