Rocksteady Studios, the team behind the groundbreaking Batman Arkham games, is taking on the Suicide Squad in its next game. That team of lovable misfits is tasked with taking down the Justice League, who have been brainwashed by the supervillain Brainiac. Logically, that game is called Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and Rocksteady revealed more about the open-world action game at DC FanDome on Saturday.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will star four (now) well-known anti-heroes — Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark — on a mission to take down not just Brainiac, but evil versions of DC heroes like Superman too. The Squad will fight in across an open-world Metropolis that’s set in Rocksteady’s established “Arkham-verse.”
Rocksteady’s next game was revealed at last year’s DC FanDome. At this year’s version of the DC Comics fan event, we got another cinematic preview of the game but still no gameplay — Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will offer both single-player and multiplayer cooperative gameplay.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to be released for PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X in 2022.
