Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League trailer is live.
At DC FanDome, Rocksteady Studios — with the support of this Lego Batman voice celebrity Will Arnett — introduced its second DC game, which places you in charge of the members of the supervillain team (Suicide Squad) as you go up against the world’s most powerful superheroes (Justice League). Set in Metropolis, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League characters include Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang — with their aims being the likes of Superman and Batman.
You are able to play Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League solo or at four-player online co-op. If you play with yourself, you are able to switch to other personalities in any time. Bots will control another heroes and supply you with a four-player celebration in any way times. Friends can take over those bot-controlled characters in online co-op.
Rocksteady declared it was functioning on a Suicide Squad game earlier in August, and then disclosed the title we now know — Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League — a week later, within the DC FanDome schedule. The game’s full show at DC FanDome doesn’t confirm what had been rumoured earlier, that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League would be motivated by the six-issue DC Comics limited series Justice League vs. Suicide Squad, but it is well worth pointing out we don’t understand enough yet.
Together with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Rocksteady — owned by Warner Bros.. Interactive Entertainment, it is a sister company to DC under the WarnerMedia umbrella — moves in a different way of the DC multiverse. Between 2009 and 2016, Rocksteady Studios delivered four Batman: Arkham titles, three of which — Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight — were played third-person, with the last of these — Batman: Arkham VR — at first-person.
The first two titles were very well-received and won a few awards. Arkham City is regarded as one of the greatest games of all time by fans and critics alike. Reviews for Arkham Knight weren’t as positive and the performance of its PC version was heavily criticised. Arkham VR was not received well, either.
Rocksteady has also been in the news this week for very different motives, together with The Guardian reporting the studio had failed to stop sexual harassment and inappropriate behaviour, even after 10 women signed a letter to bosses. Rocksteady claimed it had”immediately” taken”company measures” and at a subsequent correspondence , seven of those 10 female employees reaffirmed the studio’s perspectives and stated that Guardian’s report was not a”fair representation”.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is outside in 2022 on PC, PS5, and Xbox Collection X.
