Mysterious new Wonder Woman game announced at The Game Awards

Monolith, the Shadow of Mordor team, is behind the new game.


We saw little of it, but a Wonder Woman video game is currently in development.

Simply titled Wonder Woman, the game was announced Thursday at The Game Awards. It's being developed by Monolith, the team behind the critically lauded Shadow of Mordor series based on the Lord of the Rings.

"Wonder Woman is one of the most iconic DC Super Heroes of all time, standing for truth, justice and equality for over 80 years, and we're proud to be creating an exciting new gaming chapter in this legendary character's legacy," said David Haddad, president of Warner Bros. Games. "The talented team at Monolith Productions is building upon their strengths to bring players a Wonder Woman game that is unlike anything they have ever experienced."

Wonder Woman will implement the Nemesis System, pioneered in Shadow of Mordor, which allows the game to send previously defeated enemies back to exact revenge on players. 

"The Nemesis System raised the bar for player-driven storytelling, and we're excited to push the open-world genre forward, combining cutting-edge action with inventive narratives to create a Wonder Woman game everyone will want to play," said David Hewitt, studio head at Monolith Productions.

This new Wonder Woman game is set to be an open-world adventure and will bring a new story to the Wonder Woman universe. Most likely that means the game won't use Gal Gadot's likeness from the movies, but many recent superhero video games have pulled this off without incident.
