Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Weapons and Armors
Taling to an interview with IGN, Hirayama revealed that Wo Long contains over 15 different weapon types. 13 of these weapons are for melee combat, while 3 are for long-ranged combat. Choices include a sword, pole axe, straight saber, spear, bow, and arrow. To make the combat as impressive as possible, Wo Long takes inspiration from Chinese martial arts and motion capture. According to Hirayama:
We chose weapons that were the best match for Chinese martial arts. The motions for each weapon type were based on motion-captured forms performed by real martial artists specialized in these weapons. Then we tuned things here and there to make them feel good as an action game.”Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty director, Masakazu Hirayama
Wo Long’s producer Fumihiko Yasuda, states that the dual swords will be the best weapon in the game for beginners. There are certain weapons that you’ll have to master to use them at their full potential. However, the game has been balanced in such a way that no type of weapon is too difficult to use. The game lets you equip 2 melee weapons at once and you can use combos to beat the enemies.
Moreover, over 40 armor sets have been included in the game too. Set Bonuses will be gained if you equip multiple parts of the same armor type. You will be able to transmorg the armor like in God of War, meaning you can don your favorite armor while rocking the properties of another. All weapons and armor can be upgraded through the blacksmith.
