Action RPG WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers brings a mystical close to the Ming Dynasty in 2025

The waning days of China’s Ming Dynasty are deadly in WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers, thanks to a plague that gives rise to demonic forces.

It’s in the blood

You don’t see all that many major releases with an ancient Asian setting, but WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is all of that. The game, which was revealed at the Xbox Games Showcase, stars a young woman who finds herself at the end of China’s Ming Dynasty. But while the real-world version of that happening wasn’t what we’d call ‘peaceful’, WUCHANG’s is downright apocalyptic.

From 505 Games and developer Leenzee, WUCHANG brings a mystical plague into the mix, and it’s one that gives way to an infestation of the demonic. As it seems too, the heroine of this tale isn’t free from the oncoming curse, though she isn’t letting that stop her from dealing some gleaming, steel judgement on the beasts of the void.

Announced during this year’s Xbox Games Showcase on June 9th, WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is set in the chaotic final years of the Ming Dynasty amidst the breakout of a mysterious plague that leaves a wake of devastation in its path. Brimming with accurately recreated landscapes of Imperial China infested with mysterious demonic forces, WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers promises some of the most gruesome foes and intense combat seen on this generation of consoles. 

“We’re thrilled that WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is coming in 2025,” said Neil Ralley, President of 505 Games, “The sheer level of detail and gameplay on offer, and the world that Leenzee has created is truly astounding.”

As you can see, while it’s looking terrific, this one’s still a ways off. WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers isn’t set to debut on gaming platforms until some time next year. When it does finally land, you’ll be able to grab a copy for the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC. And yes, that’s including Game Pass, where it’ll be a day-one addition.
