Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja release a limited-time demo for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty starting today on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have launched a surprise demo for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty starting today. It is available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, but it will only last until September 26 06:59am UTC. People cannot download or play the demo after that date and time.

Players that clear the Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty demo will receive the "Crouching Dragon Helmet" item in the full game. Just like the demos for Nioh and Nioh 2 previously, a survey will be coming after the Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty demo period ends to everyone who played it. A wallpaper for the title will be given to those that complete and submit the survey.

The Wo Long demo has players play a stage that takes place during the Yellow Turban Rebellion during the Three Kingdoms era. Those who play through the stage and know their history will meet a familiar character at the end of it. At the TGS 2022 program for Koei Tecmo, the presenters also showed off the boss fight with the fearsome Lu Bu.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty launches in early 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, Windows).

Today, Koei Tecmo Europe and developer Team Ninja released the demo to their latest masocore epic, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. The demo is available from Friday 16th September at 11:00am UTC until Monday 26th September at 06:59am UTC on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. 

The action-packed demo features a glimpse inside a dark Three Kingdoms world gone mad and the chaotic struggle to save a once beloved land now infested by demons. Featuring swordplay ripped from the Chinese martial arts, the demo showcases the strategies and swiftness of battle, while also giving gamers a taste of online multiplayer, the character creator, and in-game abilities including vertical exploration and the importance of morale. As a bonus, anyone who clears the demo will earn the special item “Crouching Dragon Helmet”, which can be equipped and used in the main game upon release. A survey will also be made available via the demo in order to collect player feedback and help in the further development of the game. Those who participate in the survey will receive an original wallpaper.

In addition, Team Ninja has created a tutorial video to help gamers get started with the finer points of the masocore experience, including techniques needed to learn everything from basic counter attacks to wielding a variety of weapons.

To celebrate the demo’s release, a “Wo Long Highlights” Twitter campaign has also begun. Follow the official Twitter account (@WoLongOfficial), and post a gameplay highlight using the hashtag #WoLongDemoEU. Ten winners will be selected to receive an original Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty t-shirt.
