The Amazon is finally getting her own solo video game!
After years of mostly being featured as an optional supporting character in DC video games, Wonder Woman is officially receiving her own solo video game, which will be developed by Monolith Productions, the company known for "Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor" and "Middle-earth: Shadow of War." According to the news release, Wonder Woman is a brand new, open world, single-player third-person adventure game with an original story set in the DC universe. The title was revealed at The Game Awards on Thursday night with a short 30-second teaser trailer that officially announced the game. Check it out for yourself below.
Although the game is still in its early stages, the trailer and the developer's comments gave us a good idea of what we can expect. So, without further ado, let’s review all the information you need to know about the upcoming Wonder Woman game, including release date, platform, trailer, etc.
According to Monolith and Warner Bros. Interactive in addition to the typical game mechanics of the proposed Monoliths game, the upcoming Wonder Woman inspired by Gal Gadot will include the developer's patented Nemesis system, which will allow characters to establish connections and relationships with friends and enemies in the game. The game will mark the return of Monoliths' "nemesis" system, which makes the encounters of players and enemy NPCs in their games based on Middle-earth more personalized.
Despite years of rumored canceled Batman and Superman games, the Wonder Woman adaptation has never been whispered about, but it's a welcome surprise. While we haven't seen Wonder Woman's gameplay yet, Monolith says the game is in development, which likely means it has several years to go. Due to how the pandemic has affected game development around the world, we'll have to wait to see when Monolith Productions announces a more fixed release date or if the game will take a little longer. Given that Monolith Productions describes the game as an original story, it is unclear if the game will be linked to any established canon set by DC in its comics or cinematic properties.
While no further information has been released about Wonder Woman, it could mean that in-game Diana Prince will return to her home island of Temiskira to face a mysterious threat. During the trailer, Queen Hippolyta, Wonder Woman's mother and queen of the Amazons, asks her daughter to return home to Themyscira, likely setting the stage for the game to begin.
We will update the story when they become available. Obviously this will be a major release and we will probably get more information in the coming months.
