The Joker and Harley Quinn from 2016’s Suicide Squad are coming to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, developer PUBG Corp. announced today. The two DC villains will make a guest appearance in PUBG as a pair of skins “soon.”
Beyond the announcement trailer, PUBG Corp. didn’t offer much in the way of details about when and how Joker and Harley would appear or how their inclusion will impact the game. The developer simply confirmed a fairly obvious teaser from last week that hinted at a prison break. However, it does look like Harley Quinn’s bat might become a new melee weapon for PUBG.
The announcement appears to also confirm that DC has hitched its wagon to PUBG, after Marvel found its home in Fortnite earlier this year with the (considerably higher-effort) appearance of Thanos. That Avengers: Infinity War tie-in featured came with its own limited-time game mode. We’ll see if PUBG has something similar planned soon.
