Rocksteady Studios has released a story trailer for its upcoming action-adventure shooter centered around DC Comics’ task force of wacky super villains, the Suicide Squad. Titled Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the game will be released for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC platforms in 2022.
From Rocksteady Studios’ original announcement:
Featuring an original narrative 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 who must take on an impossible mission to save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, all four DC Super-Villains have no choice but to band together and carry out this untenable assignment as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single player, switching between characters at will, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.
“We’re introducing an original take on the Suicide Squad that combines the rich, character-driven storytelling Rocksteady is known for with innovative gameplay features to create a unique gaming experience,” said Sefton Hill, Creative Director and Co-founder, Rocksteady Studios.
“The team is creating a genre-defining experience that brings the formidable Suicide Squad to life in a way that has never been done before,” added David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games.
