Announced in a 41-second trailer during The Game Awards 2021 show Thursday, Wonder Woman is an upcoming single-player open-world action-adventure game in production from developer Monolith Productions and publisher Warner Bros. Games.
Although no release date or gaming platforms for the upcoming title were revealed, there is certainly plenty to be excited about for fans of the beloved DC super hero, Wonder Woman.
Development studio Monolith is best known as the creator of Gotham City Impostors (2012), as well as Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (2014) and its sequel Middle-earth: Shadow of War (2017).
While no gameplay was shown in the trailer, WB Games added that the single-player open-world action game will introduce an "original story set in the DC Universe" and allow players to step in the red and gold boots of Diana of Themyscira in the fight to "unite her Amazon family and the humans from the modern world."
Powered by Monolith's Nemesis System from their Middle-earth games, players will reportedly be able to "forge deep connections with both enemies and allies" as they progress from a heroic fighter into a proven leader.
Wonder Woman is one of several DC-related games in the works under the umbrella of WB Games' studios. Others include Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which was also highlighted during The Game Awards, and Player First Games' free-to-play, cross-platform Super Smash Bros.-like brawler MultiVersus.
