Today during DC FanDome, Rocksteady Studios gave us our first official look at Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League. In a rather interesting take, the game will still be set in the Batman Arkham Universe of games they've created, only they're exploring a different aspect of that world. In this story, it appears Brainiac has taken control over members of the Justice League, including the terrifying prospect of controlling Superman. The only people around who can deal with this are the Suicide Squad, specifically four members in Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark. The game will be a 1-4 player experience, where you can play alone with three bots, or fill the other slots with other players to defeat the game as a team. You can even switch between characters and are not locked to that single character you choose at the start (unless you're in a four-player squad).
They didn't make it clear as to whether more squad members would be choices, but it does look like these are the primary four you'll be locked into. In fact, a lot of the DC FanDome presentation went more for humor than to actually give us hardcore info we wanted to know about the game. Right now, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is being set for a 2022 release on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X. You can enjoy a couple of quotes about the game below as well as the reveal trailer and some screenshots.
