Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad Finally Gets a Gameplay Trailer
Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad has garnered a metric ton of attention and, well, there’s a good reason why: it’s being developed by a mighty capable studio and is based on a beloved intellectual property — one that has skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years. After months of radio silence, we now finally have a bit of gameplay footage to dissect and, needless to say, the game looks downright amazing!
Not that we expected anything less from the studio behind the Batman Arkham series — they know their way around a DC-based IP and are at the peak of their powers here, with amazing art direction, jaw-dropping graphics, and a world that looks about as crazy as the antagonists inhabiting it! All in all, we should be in for one heck of a ride!
But don’t just take our word for it, have a look!
It Does the IP Justice
Fun, quirky, idiosyncratic, and packed with action — what more could you want? This co-op, narrative-driven action game looks phenomenal and, needless to say, we can’t wait to get our hands on it!
“Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, a new genre-bending action-adventure shooter that can be played solo or with up to four players in online co-op. Based on iconic DC characters and developed by Rocksteady Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League combines the studio’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action to deliver a gaming experience unlike any other,” as per the official announcement.
The story itself will follow Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark who’ll embark on a mission to “save planet Earth and kill the world’s greatest super heroes.” By the looks of it, members of the Justice League have been lobotomised by Brainiac, and Amanda Waller’s Task Force X has been tapped to save the day or suffer dire consequences. Rocksteady will allow players to “tailor their experience” by either playing on their own (and switching between characters at will) or by teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is scheduled to release sometime in 2022 for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S|X.
