Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Warner Bros. Games and developer Rocksteady Studios have announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League during the DC FanDome 2020.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches 2022 for Windows PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.

Set in the Batman: Arkham universe; an invasion by Braniac has reduced Metropolis to ruins, and Superman appears to be under his control. Now, Task Force X (a.k.a. the titular Suicide Squad) are tasked with stopping him.

This is group is made of criminals Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. All of them have been forced to save the day, in exchange for a reduced sentence and the bombs planted in their bodies not exploding.

The action-adventure shooter will combine with Arkham elements, and what each character can do. This will include navigation skills such as Deadshot’s jetpack or Captain Boomerang high-speed backpack technology, and each character’s weapons.

The game supports one to four player co-op. Players are free to switch between the characters, and can play any part of the story in single player or co-op (with friends jumping in and out when they wish).

You can find the official teaser trailer below.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via its official site:

Featuring an original narrative set in the DC universe, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in a richly detailed open-world Metropolis. The story follows Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark who must take on an impossible mission to save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, all four DC Super-Villains have no choice but to band together and carry out this untenable assignment as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single player, switching between characters at will, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.

The playable characters featured in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are Harley Quinn (a.k.a. Dr. Harleen Quinzel), the mistress of mayhem; Deadshot (a.k.a. Floyd Lawton), the most dangerous marksman alive; Captain Boomerang (a.k.a. Digger Harkness), Aussie assassin extraordinaire; and King Shark (a.k.a. Nanaue), the demigod humanoid shark and rightful ruler of the seas. Each squad member has their own unique moveset with enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis, along with a variety of weapons to customize and skills to master.
