Wonder Woman Is Not Live Service, Warner Bros. Confirms
Recently, a rumour was kicked off online based on a comment dug up on a job listing – and that rumour stated that the in-development Wonder Woman title will be a live service game. That means it’ll be ‘one of those’ games that is updated periodically with new seasons, content drops, microtransactions, rotating bundles, and so on.
It was a cause for concern for gamers the world over, particularly those with an interest in assuming control of Wonder Woman in her own game, which is being pieced together by Monolith, who you may remember from likes of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (and Shadow of War). However, Warner Bros recently took to the airwaves to state that Wonder Woman is not live service – not even close.
Wonder Woman is a single-player action-adventure game set in a dynamic open world. This third-person experience will allow players to become Diana of Themyscira and introduce an original story set in the DC Universe while also featuring the Nemesis System. Wonder Woman is not being designed as a live service game.
It was only the job listing that recently threw everyone off track, as up until that point, neither Monolith nor Warner Bros had said anything definitive about the operating model of Wonder Woman. It’s reassuring to read that it’s a single-player title, though – and the resurfacing of the Nemesis System that made the Middle Earth games so much fun to play is also massively exciting.
I’m not even a fan of Wonder Woman and I’m looking forward to seeing how the adversarial system has evolved after all these years.
