Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Video Game Trailer
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League first trailer has arrived from DC FanDome. The video game was earlier confirmed, after much anticipation, by Rocksteady Studios. The same studio behind the acclaimed Batman: Arkham video game series is working on the new video game. As you will see from the trailer, that project includes Task Force X taking on the apparently difficult task of defeating Superman and his superhero buddies.
In the trailer, we see Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang setting out on a mission in Metropolis. At first, they are taking on an army of villains in an action-packed, spectacle befitting the characters. But things change quickly when Superman shows up. At first, the team thinks that the Man of Steel is with them. However, they are immediately met with the understanding that something is quite wrong with the hero, which puts them in a tight spot. The game will concentrate on the journey from there, which will see the team taking on the Justice League, obviously overmatched and underpowered against Superman.
As shown during the panel at DC Fandome, the game is set in the same universe as the Arkham games, which should be satisfying for fans who loved that series. The difference here is that we will be mostly based in Metropolis, which was defined as a character in the video game. It will be a one to the four-player game. There is a single-player option, but gamers can also have their buddies join in as one of the other members of the Suicide Squad. A very short description of the game was announced, which reads as follows.
“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 been forced to team up and take on a new mission: Kill the Justice League. Create Chaos in Metropolis. You are the Suicide Squad.”
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League won’t be coming out until 2022. No release date was revealed but, we have well over a year to wait that is for sure. The video game will be released on the next-gen consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as well as on the PC.
