After ruling the pages of DC Comics for decades and enjoying massive success between two movies on the big screen since 2017, Wonder Woman is finally ready to be the centerpiece of her video game, having typically relegated to supporting roles in others. “Wonder Woman” was developed by Monolith Productions, the same studio that gave fans the critically acclaimed “Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor” and its sequel, “Middle-earth: Shadow of War.” By all accounts, “Wonder Woman” will benefit from the same gameplay system that helped make the “Middle-earth” series famous as it has become. Described as a third-person, open-world adventure game, the game will “present an original story set in the DC Universe and allow players to become Diana from Themyscira in the battle to unite her Amazon family and humans from the modern world. With the support of the Nemesis system, players will forge deep connections with Both enemies and allies as they progress from a heroic fighter to a proven leader.”
David Hewitt of Monolith Productions released a statement about their goals for “Wonder Woman” and use of the game-changing Nemesis system (literally!), saying:
“At Monolith Productions, we believe in the power of player-led storytelling to unite people. The stories our players share inspire us every day, and we are honored to take players on a uniquely personal journey, driven by the values embodied in Wonder Woman. The Nemesis system has raised the bar for player-led storytelling and we are excited To drive the open-world genre forward, combining cutting edge action and innovative storylines to create the Wonder Woman game everyone wants to play.”
No release date has been set, but DC’s announcement of this game proves fitting as DC is celebrating Wonder Woman’s 80th anniversary this year. Stay tuned for more details as they arrive.
