Wonder Woman: The Themyscira Experience

Roblox, the global online platform bringing more than 120 million people together through play, have announced Wonder Woman: The Themyscira Experience. Available now, Wonder Woman: The Themyscira Experience was built in partnership with Warner Bros. and DC to bring Wonder Woman’s iconic Super Hero stories to life on the Roblox platform. 

Inside Wonder Woman: The Themyscira Experience on Roblox, users, together with friends, can explore Diana Prince’s Amazonian homeland of Themyscira within a virtual platform, enjoying the unique benefits of embodiment and co-presence that Roblox avatars provide.

Roblox users will be able to enter into quests to explore the paradise island of Themyscira, equip their avatars with gear inspired by the comic books and movie, collect treasures worthy of a champion, play all-new mini games, and browse a series of featured virtual items from the Wonder Woman comic books and movies in multiple virtual stores throughout the experience. 

“Today more than ever, people are looking for ways to connect with one another and their communities through authentic and immersive experiences that can be used and shared across the Roblox universe,” said Craig Donato, Chief Business Officer at Roblox. “We’re excited to work with DC and Warner Bros. on a first-of-its-kind experience that we think both Wonder Woman fans and Roblox users will love.”
