Superheroes and games go together like peanut butter and jelly––experiences like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Spider-Man were genre-defining. There are so many characters in the comic book sphere that deserve their own gaming experiences, yet most games out there focus on the big-leaguers. Last year saw the release of Miles Morales, a game which launched alongside the PlayStation 5, as well Avengers by Square Enix––but their levels of success are probably best left unspoken.
Those characters, however, aren't new to the gaming scene. So what about heroes like the Flash? Green Lantern? Where are their gaming experiences?
Well, now, Warner Bros. Games has decided to surprise gamers worldwide by helping buck the trend; Wonder Woman, Princess Diana herself, is getting her own game.
Wonder Woman Arrives in a New Game
At the Game Awards, a brand new Wonder Woman game was announced. The game will be made by Monolith Productions, under Warner Bros. Games.
The teaser showed off several shots of Wonder Woman's iconic outfit as the camera panned around the famous DC superhero.
Fans can see the face of this iteration of Wonder Woman, who is clearly not based on Gal Gadot's DCEU hero.
Before the teaser ends, fans can see a full-body shot revealing Wonder Woman in all her powerful glory.
Warner Bros. Games tweeted out after the reveal a tease, revealing that the hero "will fight to unite the warriors of two worlds. You are Wonder Woman."
The game is created by the same developers behind hit games such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War.
It's set to be a single-player open-world action game, which will feature an original story that sees Diana of Themyscira "fight to unite her Amazon family and the humans from the modern world."
Wonder Woman will also utilize the Nemesis System that the developers are known for, letting players "forge deep connections with both enemies and allies as they progress from a heroic fighter into a proven leader."
The entire trailer can be seen below:
The Resurgance Gets a Wonder Woman
Superhero video games are in somewhat of a resurgence recently. As mentioned above, Spider-Man and Batman were the usual subjects for comic book games, but even those games were sparse; it was them or cash-grab mobile games.
Now, the landscape couldn't have a brighter future. For one, there's this new Wonder Woman game to be excited about. Then there's Insomniac, who has Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, and a rumored Marvel MMO-style game. Warner Bros.
The list goes on and on, with countless games being developed for those comic book fans out there who have been yearning for more experiences with their favorite hero. Now, thanks to Warner Bros. Games, they can count Princess Diana as one of them.
