Happy times for readers of stories about martial arts! As the game’s title may have given away, the new open-world action game Code: To Jin Yong is based on martial arts and was inspired by the wuxia books of famed Chinese novelist Jin Yong. Tencent Games made the announcement during its most recent game conference.
Although it is being billed as a tribute to the author and is based on the universe that he built, Code: To Jin Yong will feature smooth melee combat and swordfighting duels. However, it appears that some fantasy aspects will also make their way into the experience. The first gameplay footage that was showed off in the game’s premiere trailer shows two characters going up against one other in a fight that is primarily based on melee combat; however, we also see some magical and elemental skills being employed by both sides of the conflict. Watch the teaser for the movie down below.
The mobile version of Code: To Jin Yong is being developed by Lightspeed Studios, the same company responsible for PUBG Mobile and Apex Legends Mobile. The game is being created on the Unreal Engine 5 platform. There is currently no information regarding the debut date of the game or the different operating systems that it will be compatible with.
