In an interview with Video Games Chronicle last October, Team Ninja had indicated that it did not want to make Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty an open-world Elden Ring style. “We’ve played it, and we think Elden Ring is a great seamless open-world experience. But when it comes to Wo Long, that’s not what we’re looking forhad explained in particular the director Fumihiko Yasuda. In fact, we try to focus on what we think we do best in Team Ninja first and foremost, which is mission-based games where the intensity keeps you going. That’s what we’re focusing on, which is the opposite of areas that unfold to form a single map.

However, during an interview with our colleagues from Wccftechthe same Fumihiko Yasuda and Masaaki Yamagiwa (producer) said that the world of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty would be more open than that of Nioh. “And not just because we added the jump mechanicthey said. It’s also because the game will be set in China as we wanted to immerse players in a bigger playing field, including huge vistas, unique landscapes and massive castles; these are elements that define China.

Before adding:As in Nioh, it will always be about completing missions because we want players to focus above all on the intensity of the fights with as few side effects as possible. But despite everything, they will have reasons to explore the levels. For example, activating different flags will be essential to take advantage of the morale system. So while Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty isn’t strictly open-world, scanning your surroundings will be important, and players who take the time to do so will be rewarded. And then, let’s not forget that we are also developing Rise of the Ronin which, for once, will be open-world and will have a number of features that will allow you to really feel in the shoes of a ninja from the world. ‘era.

The two men were also asked about the possible arrival of a second demo of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the first having been deployed on Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PS5 last September at the Tokyo Game Show. 2022. Aware that not all players necessarily own these machines, Team Ninja is not ruling out the possibility of offering a second trial version which, this time, would include Xbox One, PS4 and PC. For the record, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is expected for March 3, 2023.
