Rocksteady is the studio behind the highly applauded Arkham games, and a lot of DC fans had been waiting for the release of their next title Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League since it was announced in 2020.
The game has received multiple delays since then, and is now looking to come out in 2024. Now we have a new story and gameplay overview that gives us a good look at the start of the game as well as some of the game mechanics. Watch this:
Join members of the development team at Rocksteady for a deep dive into the story and gameplay of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, including a look at the Squad’s traversal mechanics and the world of Metropolis from this upcoming third-person action shooter game.
We’ve known all about the core team of Harley, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang for a while, but the overview gives us a great look at the story—specifically what happened with Metropolis and how the Squad ended up going there.
We get to watch the team ransack the Hall of Justice, and this is how they gain their gear to help them move around the open world of the city.
The overview also gives us a look at the Justice League who have all been put under the control of Brainiac. Though it looked like the Flash was going to be a villain since the beginning, the trailer does reveal that he somehow escaped the first wave of possessions and we get to see him clash with Green Lantern before he got possessed too.
Admittedly, the game has been delayed so many times that fans have started to become cynical about its release. It also doesn’t help that rumors are going around that the game will be more multiplayer focused as compared to the singe-player narratives that were the Arkham games.
Hopefully we get to see more of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League soon. With a release set for February, it would make sense for the studio to try their best to keep everyone excited.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to release for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on Feb. 2, 2024.
