During the DC FanDome yesterday evening, Warner Bros. Games, Rocksteady and DC announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, a new single-player or multiplayer action-adventure shooter with up to four players in online co-op.
The story of the game is based on the original setting 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, as they embark on an impossible mission to save Earth and defeat the world’s greatest DC superheroes, the Justice League.
Playable characters featured in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are Harley Quinn (aka Dr. Harleen Quinzel), the chaos lover; Deadshot (aka Floyd Lawton), the most dangerous sharpshooter alive; Captain Boomerang (aka Digger Harkness), extraordinary Australian assassin; and King Shark (aka Nanaue), the demigod humanoid shark and rightful ruler of the seas.
Each squad member has their own unique move set with enhanced abilities to freely explore Metropolis’ dynamic open world, along with a variety of weapons to customize and skills to master.
According to the statements of the developers, one of the reasons why the core of the game was chosen, and clearly its protagonists, is the desire to take advantage of the incredible roster of villains that DC has. The game has been defined as “a hybrid”, which merges a gameplay similar to that of the Batman we have been used to, with a very particular gunplay, in which we will exploit techniques, skills, moveset, melee, and firearms. The game will be playable both in single-player and in company, and there will also be the possibility to change the character of the team.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will release in 2022 on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Here’s the first trailer of the game.
