Code: To Jin Yong is really going to be an exciting game by a Chinese AAA studio. The game was announced on the 27th of June, this year and since then a lot of hope has been building around the game. In fact, this is quite expected when you adopt a famous wuxia novel series into a martial arts game. Well, some of you might be new to the word ‘wuxia’. The word ‘wuxia’ is a Chinese word that translates to “martial heroes”. In fact, it refers to a genre of Chinese fiction concerning the adventures of martial artists in ancient China. We have seen many wuxia movies and we have also loved many of them. Therefore, similar popularity is also there for Wuxia games.
In fact, the trailer featured stylish combat along with exaggerated aerial movements. Now, in any wuxia cinema, you will find these aerial movements. In fact, it is a hallmark of any wuxia cinema. However, the gracefulness with which Code: To Jin Yong replicates these movements in the game, is something really rare in the gaming world. In most action games, we can dodge and block attacks, standing on the ground. However, Code: To Jin Yong makes it way cooler by letting you jump impractical distances. Isn’t that interesting enough? Well, if that has excited the gamer within you, keep reading the article to know more about the game.
Jin: About The Game
Lightspeed Studios, a studio owned by Tencent, is developing the game. In fact, Lightspeed Studios previously worked on the mobile versions of PUBG and Apex Legends. However, what is more interesting, is that Unreal Engine 5 will be involved in the development of the Code: To Jin Yong. In fact, Tencent is of the opinion that the advanced physics system of Unreal Engine 5 will help the developers to include fantastical martial arts movements.
The trailer also suggests that the environment of the game will be highly responsive to the player’s actions. Even the leaves move as per the attacks of the characters. Moreover, the camera movements as seen in the trailer are really dynamic and this adds to the game’s charm. However, there remains a doubt whether the visuals shown in the trial will be there in the game after its launch. There are various reasons for the doubt. Firstly, the developers have so far released AAA Games only for mobiles. Therefore, there remains a doubt as to how their PC and other games would perform. Secondly, the trailer clearly states that the visuals of the trailer have no connection with the quality of the final product.
The developers have not announced any release date for Code: To Jin Yong. Therefore, we may have to wait for a long time, before we get to play the first-ever wuxia game developed in Unreal Engine 5. However, the gaming scene in China is changing slowly. The regulatory agencies have started to allow more gaming projects to release domestically. However, one major problem remains. Obtaining a license is still a highly difficult task even for gaming giants like Tencent. As a result, AAA studios have shifted their attention to premium experiences. At the same time, the publishers are also looking to expand their business beyond the domestic market. Therefore, it will really be interesting to see how and when Code: To Jin Yong makes it to the market.
