Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Reveals 2023 Roadmap; Promises for PC Optimization, New Endgame Content & More

Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja have revealed the 2023 content roadmap for their action-adventure game Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. Quite a bit was stated by director and producer Masakazu Hirayama, which we have quoted at varying extents below:

You can read the director letter’s introduction and promises for PC optimization below:

“Hello to everyone playing Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty! This is the producer/director, Hirayama, and I wanted to take timeout to not only thank all of the players for their continued support, but to provide a road map of what everyone can expect from the game in the near future.”

Optimization and bug fixes for the PC version

We can’t talk about the future without talking about the past and present difficulties with the game. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to everyone playing the PC version of Wo Long since its release.

I can assure you that the development team has read each and every report posted on various bulletin boards, social channels, our customer support department, and we have placed top priority on optimization and bug fixes.

However, there are many combinations of PC environments in each household, and while our team continues to expand the environments where the game is checked post-launch, it will take time to replicate issues and properly fix them. I promise that we will continue to make improvements so that you can play with peace of mind as soon as possible. We apologize for this delay.

From the bottom of our hearts, we truly appreciate everyone who takes time to not only play our game, but to send us comments, streams, and screenshots in hopes of helping us continue to make the experience better for all gamers.

In order to fulfill your expectations, our development team is committed in the efforts to make the game even more enjoyable for you. With that in mind, I hope we can count on your continued support for Wo Long; Fallen Dynasty.

Details and hopes for the road map are quoted below, alongside the road map itself:

In our road map for the game, our plan is to try and provide you with something to improve the experience every month!

With regards to the direction of year-round balance adjustments and feature expansion, we will focus on the following 2 points:

  • Expanding the scope of strategy with a focus on action and RPG
  • Improving the ease of playability

road map

The new end-game content planned to be released is not additional difficulty levels, as they are “planning end-game content that aims to be played repeatedly based on different ‘strategy,’ which is one of the themes of Wo Long.”

There are also plans for “further expansion through this end-game content so that DLC Vol. 3 can be played at a deeper level.”

Lastly, there was a passage detailing future major balance adjustments.

Major balance adjustments & feature expansion

“When DLC Vol. 2 is released, we are also planning a major balance adjustment and feature expansion. As touched upon in the first section, “expanding the scope of strategy with a focus on action and RPG” and “improving the ease of playability” will be the main direction we will take as we make adjustments and/or additions to various features.

For example, in terms of action, this includes the strengthening the uniqueness of each existing weapon type, expanding Martial Arts and Spirit, raising each of the infrequently used action types, and adjusting the timing of cancelling actions.

In terms of RPG, this takes into account adjusting the base of infrequently used Special Effects and reviewing how status is reflected. In regards to UI, we are addressing UI controls and flows that are not easy to use. These are just some of the things that we are planning in the coming months.

In advance of DLC Vol. 2, we are also planning for an update to make adjustments related to drops, as well as additional features. It will take some time before these are released, so please be on the lookout for upcoming information.”
