Warner Bros has just officially announced Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be coming out on next-gen platforms only, and will release in 2022. Furthermore, the publisher has released the game’s official in-engine reveal trailer that you can find below.
Now the reason I’m saying this is an in-engine trailer is because we can clearly notice some shortcomings. Take a close look at Harley’s hair for example. That would have been unacceptable for a CG offline trailer. Her hair looks more like what we’d expect from an actual game.
As the game’s description reads:
“The creators of the Batman: Arkham series are back with a brand new action-adventure shooter. The most dangerous villains in the DC Universe have teamed up and take on a new mission: Kill the Justice League. Create Chaos in Metropolis. You are the Suicide Squad.”
Here are some additional details about the game.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will combine Rocksteady’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action. 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.
Lastly, the playable characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark.
