The DLC includes a new story scenario, difficulty level, and weapon type, as well as new stages, enemies, and lore. Not many other specific details were revealed, aside from the key art depicting three Chinese warriors, but more information will be shared soon.
Zhongyuan is known as the “Central Plains” and refers to the North China Plan surrounding the lower and middle parts of the Yellow River. It's perceived as the birthplace of Chinese civilization.

In IGN’s Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty review, we said, “When it comes to the clashing of melee weapons, Wo Long is among the best in the genre, full stop. Its action is fast and thrilling, the options for taking down its ferocious enemies are many and immensely rewarding to master, and its deflection-heavy combat is one of the most satisfying since Sekiro.”
