Black Myth Wukong Physical

In a move that's sure to rub physical media enthusiasts the wrong way, highly anticipated action title Black Myth: Wukong will not ship on an actual disc. Developer Game Science has confirmed that the physical editions of the game — which is due out on the 20th August — will simply house digital activation codes.

"It is the first time for Game Science to release a console game globally, and we are currently facing limitations in offline resources required for the import, export, transportation, distribution, and sales of physical discs," reads the studio's official FAQ.

It continues: "Our publishing team is actively working on resolving these issues and exploring options to offer physical discs." So, it sounds like Game Science is working to get discs included eventually, but it's still a kicker to learn that the boxed release is borderline pointless at launch.
