Warner Bros. Entertainment recently featured their DC Fandome. The virtual-con event showcased a plethora of DC Comics properties with new releases. From comics to movies to video games, there was a place for everyone who watched.
One game of note was Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Developed by Batman Arkham series developers, Rocksteady Studios, this title will take place in the Arkham-verse while featuring the titular Suicide Squad. DC villains who’ve banded together will take the fight to the Justice League. As you play as Harley Quinn and her associates, you’ll be coming against the DC Universe superheroes.
What to Expect
The Suicide Squad comes face to face with Superman at the end of the trailer. However, this version of Superman kills a man as his eyes glow red. This is not the first time a DC game toyed with the idea of an “evil” Superman. One prime and recent example includes Netherrealm Studios‘ Injustice series. While the Justice League is under the control of Brainiac, Amanda Waller summons the Suicide Squad to deal with the League.
This new Suicide Squad game will be a series first. While members of the Squad have appeared in the Injustice series and the Batman Arkham titles, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will band them together for the first time. Longtime Harley Quinn voice actress, Tara Strong, will reprise her role.
Along with four characters, Suicide Squad will feature 4-player co-op. While you can opt to play solo, this feels similar to how Marvel Ultimate Alliance will allow you to play as superbeings with others. We’ll keep you posted on how this gameplay will work as details become more apparent.
Skip ahead to 9:49 if you want to get to the interview with the director of Suicide Squad, and past Batman Arkham titles, Sefton Hill.
When I first saw the subtitle, it sounded too silly to be real. On the flip side, even Marvel did this before with their own comic arc. I’m specifically referring to a storyline featuring Deadpool.
What makes this more interesting to consider is that the Suicide Squad aren’t people with such powers as to take on a godlike Kryptonian. They’re assassins and human beings.
With that being said, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will launch in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. Be sure to keep up with AllCoolThings for the latest info on WB Games and Rocksteady Studios’ upcoming title.
