One of the surprises that the last gala of the Game Awards 2021 left us was the presentation of the official game of wonder-woman. And this has an added value, being the first video game of this DC Comics heroine, having acted as a secondary character in the LEGO adventures or as a fighter in Injustice.
Precisely, an injustice knowing that he is one of the oldest faces in the world of comics, emerging in 1941. To put us in a situation, Superman did the same in 1938 and Batman just a year later. So let’s go collect all the information to come out about his first video game as the protagonist…
Wonder Woman: release on consoles and PC
Being only recently introduced, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment hasn’t gotten wet by announcing an estimated release date. In fact we have not seen a trailer as such, but a brief teaser. So for now we can’t say exactly when it will come out (minimum 2023that’s for sure), except for the systems as it is quite likely that it will do so in PS5 and Xbox Series and the everlasting Windows.
News regarding its development
WB Games has been quite sparing (for now) when talking about its development by Monolith Productions, but at least in its cover letter it did take the opportunity to emphasize a couple of important details. First of all, it is important to know that it is a solo game in an open worldso Rocksteady Studios’ Batman Arkham inevitably comes to mind.
The story that we will enjoy will be original, created for the occasion, logically set within the DC universe and with the aim of embodying Diana of Themyscira, wonder-woman, in “her struggle to unite her family of Amazons with humans for the modern world”. And being the first official video game with absolute prominence for this heroine, there are no comparisons, so surely there will be no shortage of surprises in this regard. Here the example to follow should be the recent works of Batman and completely avoid the bad luck that The Man of Steel has always had, as with the infamous Superman 64.
For now we do not know any other character, be it ally or villain, within this game. But being open world it falls out of the box that there will be no shortage of well-known names like his nemesis Cheetah, who appeared in the recent Wonder Woman 1984, or who knows if a cameo of the aforementioned Superman or Batman. By proxy, any member of the League of Justice having been one of its founders.
Regarding the latter, we must not forget that we are going to have a good portion of video games from the DC Comics universe with Gotham Knights later this year and already Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League in 2023. And in all these cases, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is working as editor. Hence it makes quite a bit of sense that there could be narrative connections between those games.
Gameplay: How will Wonder Woman play?
Already in playable matter, that Monolith Productions is in charge of its development gives it prestige as it is the same studio that surprised us years ago with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and its sequel, Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
It cannot be forgotten that both games were much more than a simple mix between Assassin’s Creed and Batman Arkham, being action adventures very consistent with the combats and above all deep due to its new Nemesis system. And the most curious thing about it? Wonder Woman will make use of the Nemesis system. So we will be making connections with both allies and enemies on a much more complex level as we progress through the story.
On the other hand, it would not be unreasonable to think that at a playable level it will take us back to the style of Rocksteady, being a benchmark for the action genre thanks to those combos based on hypnotic and challenging choreography. Monolith already did it, hence it should not surprise us if it repeats when taking that concept that works and did well.
Curiously, it is not the first Monolith video game in the DC universe, having created the colorful Gotham City Impostors in 2012. Nor is it the first weight license of his, apart from The Lord of the Rings. He has worked with the Matrix, Tron and even a crossover of Alien versus Predator in its 2001 sequel. But above all, it is a studio that dominates multiple genres and to which we owe cult works such as the condemned and the trilogy of FEAR. With Wonder Woman her pulse will not tremble, apart from the fact that her journey with WB Games comes from a long time ago.
The only teaser shown at the Game Awards
In short, a video game wonder-woman in charge of the study that surprised us with Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War within the universe of The Lord of the rings. It is not the first time that this team has been in the situation of working with a name license and it is comforting to know that most of the time it passed the exam with flying colours. So you have to watch it very closely.
