Honor of Kings is heading to consoles, and its name seems to resemble Monster Hunter: World (the open world and art style remind us of another IP).
Tencent, the Chinese tech giant that has the state party strangle its throat on its home turf is fleeing to the western gaming industry along with fellow player NetEase. Tencent has now released a new video from Honor of Kings: World, which TiMi Studio Group is working on. We can now admire the visuals from the open-world action RPG and get a taste of the combat. Unfortunately, the Chinese aren’t talking much about the game.
The trailer has a brief description but doesn’t say much: “Master a host of mighty skills as you roam this continent of vastness and possibilities. Embark on a journey that will captivate your eyes and heart. Experience new wonders, encounter a colorful cast of characters, and leave your mark on long-lost ruins. “Only the relic can grant me the answer.” Get ready to embark on a fantasy journey in a world of discovery, wonder, and adventure. “That’s it. That’s a lot of marketing speech.
The visuals are good, and the combat seems adequate, especially as we can’t win exclusively by melee because, although there are swords, a Gatling gun has also appeared. The game is also being worked on by a Chinese sci-fi writer, Liu Cixin. He’s known for his book The Three-Body Problem and is helping Tencent shape Honor of Kings: World with his interpretation of Chinese culture and aesthetics.
Honor of Kings: World has yet to set a release date, but Tencent and TiMi Studio Group have said they want to see the game on multiple platforms, which brings to mind the term multiplatform, and it wouldn’t be a massive surprise if the game is released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. Maybe this year. Maybe next year. We’ll find out…
