Right here’s all the things we find out about Surprise Girl, from the discharge date and story to the gameplay and extra.
Surprise Girl launch date
We don’t have an official launch date for Surprise Girl simply but, however we think about that it’ll launch past 2022. My guess is 2023 to 2024, and that’s solely as a result of Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad have already got launch home windows in 2022, so it begs to purpose that Surprise Girl would have revealed its window if 2022 was the case.
We’re unsure concerning the consoles that Surprise Girl will likely be dropping on, however contemplating the consistency of the Shadow of Mordor video games, it’s possible going to launch on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X on the very least.
Surprise Girl story
Whereas we solely bought a Surprise Girl teaser that lasted lower than a minute, we have now some inkling about what’s occurring within the story.
Within the description for the YouTube video, it describes how we play as Diana of Themyscira within the battle to unite her Amazon household and the people from the fashionable world. It additionally reads that Surprise Girl will introduce an unique story to the DC Universe, which means that it received’t be straight primarily based on one other work.
Nevertheless, it might nonetheless function ties to different comedian books. It might be fairly neat to play as Surprise Girl and face off in opposition to Greek gods like Ares. We additionally don’t know if Surprise Girl has any ties to the Arkhamverse or the universe during which Gotham Knights takes place. We think about that we’ll study extra down the highway.
Within the trailer, we hear, “my daughter, a brand new risk involves our shores and I need to name you residence.” So we all know that at this level, Surprise Girl has left Themyscira and lives amongst trendy society. Her mom goes on to say that she must reunite previous enemies and grow to be a pacesetter. It seems like this sport takes place at a degree in Surprise Girl’s profession the place she must grow to be some form of basic in an enormous battle, in order that’s fairly thrilling.
Surprise Girl gameplay
Surprise Girl is described as a single participant open-world motion journey sport. The place’s the world happening? Properly, if the trailer is any indication, it’s possible that the sport is happening in Themyscira.
It’s additionally been confirmed that Surprise Girl will use the Nemesis System that the Shadow of Mordor video games used, which is fairly neat. Which means we’ll possible get to satisfy some iconic characters out within the open-world to battle.
Since Monolith is creating Surprise Girl, it’ll possible play just like the Shadow of Mordor video games, which isn’t unhealthy because it’ll swimsuit the third-person motion that the sport might want to exhibit the hero’s skills.
I can already see it now: the bracelets are going to behave as a parry, the lasso of reality goes to be a stun mechanic, the tiara goes to be a ranged assault, and the sword goes to be for epic melee strikes. I bought this all found out — not likely, however I guess it’ll look one thing related.
As thrilling as a Surprise Girl sport is, I’m not 100% positive it’ll be very groundbreaking gameplay-wise, however I hope that Monolith pulls out some new tips for this title.
Surprise Girl PC necessities
It’s greater than possible that Surprise Girl is heading to PC, however we have now to think about that it’s going to take lots of energy to run correctly contemplating Monolith’s observe file of taxing titles.
When taking a look at Center-earth: Shadow of Battle for reference, we see that it required a minimal of an AMD FX-4350 or Intel Core i5-2300 CPU, 6GB of RAM, and an AMD HD 7870 2 GB or NVIDIA GTX 660 2 GB GPU. Nevertheless, the advisable necessities up these specs to an AMD FX-8350 or Intel Core i7-3770 CPU, 12GB of RAM, and an AMD RX580 4GB or NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB GPU.
If I needed to guess, I think about that Surprise Girl will possible advocate an RTX 3060 by the point it launches. That isn’t that massive of an issue, nevertheless, as a result of a few of the best cheap gaming laptops have already got that.
Surprise Girl is probably going an extended methods away, however there was nonetheless loads of data to assemble from that one trailer. We’re excited to see what this new age of Surprise Girl seems to be like. I definitely hope that it’s higher than the current live-action movies on the very least.
