Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty has undergone a price increase across various regions around the world, which has raised the regional price by a vast margin in the last few days. As recorded by the Stream tracking site, SteamDB, the awaited entry has gotten more expensive in the previous few days in select countries without any warnings.

The alluring dark RPG will now drain your pockets significantly more if you are in one of the regions that have suffered the massive price hike. Countries like South Africa, Argentina, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Ukraine, Philippines, Colombia, and many more have been greatly affected, and the game price has increased by a deep margin.

Some countries, like South Africa, have seen the price inflate by over 60 percent, which is quite confusing and alarming, to say the least. Comparing the current South African Rand price of 819.00 to the old R 499.00 leads to over a 60% increase, and all editions of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty have been impacted by the price hike.

Colombia is another country that has been hurt by the price increase. Now, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will cost over 18 USD more in the country. All in all, most South American and other third-world countries have suffered the addition in price, making it much harder for the local gaming spheres to buy the highly anticipated entry.

The users have been left confused because of the transition in cost, and many have started complaining across social media forums like Reddit, leading to a new wave of criticism across the gaming industry.

A Reddit post on the r/pcgaming subreddit perfectly encapsulates the feelings of potential buyers caused by the steep price hike haunting Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. One user noted in replies, “Sega and koei just made everything very easy for me with their pricing. I just don’t buy from them anymore.

Reports regarding the poor performance of the Fallen Dynasty Demo have also been circulating across the web, which prevented gamers from pre-ordering the entry before the price was increased in their regions. Some users have noted that they will no longer be playing Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty unless a massive sale arrives in the future.

Moreover, the developers behind Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, Team Ninja, have not yet officially addressed the price increase on the Steam storefront. The official Twitter handle and other social media appear to be barren regarding the shift in regional prices, and the community is furious because of the silence.

We may hear an official statement in the near future concerning the price hike if the international community gathers enough criticism. Thankfully, the game is already available to be downloaded on the Xbox Game Pass, and the players can enjoy the game on the service without paying a single dime.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is slated to release on 3rd March 2023, on both the last and next-gen platforms. It will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Series S, and PC.
