Yet another upcoming game that will support Windows 10 and DirectX 12 has been revealed via a new trailer. This time it's for the Chinese-based fantasy action-strategy game King of Wushu from developer Snail Games.
The game, which uses Crytek's CryEngine, has already been released in China for Sony's PlayStation 4 console, but two software engineers at Snail Games were able to covert King of Wushu to run on DirectX 12 and Windows 10 in just six weeks. The trailer shows that the DirectX 12 version renders faster compared to the game running on DirectX 11. The DirectX 12 version can also show more characters on-screen. Each character is composed of over 20,000 polygons. The Windows 10 version of the game will be released in China sometime later in 2015.
Microsoft showed the King of Wushu trailer as part of its DirectX 12 panel at Build 2015 this week, which can now be viewed in full on the Channel 9 site. Microsoft said during the panel that the adoption of DirectX 12 by developers for upcoming games has been the fastest since Direct3D 9 came out over a decade ago, which hopefully means that when Windows 10 officially launches there will be a bunch of DirectX 12 games to play.
