Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League: Rocksteady Tries Something New [VIDEO]

Although the Suicide Squad game is set in the same universe as the Batman: Arkham series, it’s still going to be a significant change for Rocksteady.

Yesterday, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) finally officially revealed what Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Montreal are doing (the latter is developing Gotham Knights). „Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League showcases Rocksteady Studios’ ability to combine masterful storytelling and compelling gameplay based on well-known DC characters. The team is creating a genre-defining experience that brings the formidable Suicide Squad to life in a way that has never been done before,” said WBIE president David Haddad in a press release. „[…] We’re introducing an original take on the Suicide Squad that combines the rich, character-driven storytelling Rocksteady is known for with innovative gameplay features to create a unique gaming experience,” Rocksteady Studios creative director and co-founder Sefton Hill added.

The press release is a bit fluff, so we quote the important parts: „Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a new genre-bending action-adventure shooter that can be played solo or with up to three players in online co-op. […] Featuring an original narrative set in the DC universe, [it] takes place in a richly detailed open-world Metropolis. The story follows Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn (a.k.a. Dr Harleen Quinzel), Deadshot (Floyd Lawton), Captain Boomerang (Digger Harkness), and King Shark (Nanaue) 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. […] Each squad member has their 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,” it says.

During the game’s presentation, Hill confirmed that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League’s universe is shared with the Batman: Arkham franchise… and going by that, Batman and Joker should be dead. (It will affect Gotham Knights, too.) The game will launch in 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
