DC FanDome: Trailer of new video game 'Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League' released
- Rocksteady Studios dropped the trailer of their new Suicide Squad game
- The game will be an open-world action game
- Rocksteady Studios was the team behind the Batman Arkham games
Rocksteady Studios, the British video game developers, dropped the trailer of their new Suicide Squad game during DC FanDome on Saturday. The game, called "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League," will be an open-world action game about the darling misfits of the DC Comics world, who have been brainwashed by the supervillain Brainiac.
Rocksteady Studios was the team behind the critically acclaimed Batman Arkham games and the new game will also take place in the already established "Arkham-verse" in Metropolis.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will feature four (now) well-known anti-heroes — Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark — on a mission to stop not just Brainiac, but also evil versions of DC heroes such as Superman.
As seen in the trailer, the four anti-heroes are introduced in a hilarious fashion. Deadshot was referred to as the "muscle-head" by Brainiac, Harley Quinn as the "nut job", King Shark as "something that offends my eyes" and a "homeless guy" Captain Boomerang.
Last year's DC FanDome saw the announcement of Rocksteady's upcoming game. We got another cinematic glimpse of the game at this year's DC Comics fan event, but no gameplay. "Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League" will have single-player and multiplayer cooperative action.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to be released for PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X in 2022.
Meanwhile, the other highlight reels of DC FanDome 2021 included, Dwayne Johnson putting out the extensive first look of his film Black Adam. The sneak peek of the new Aquaman film was also released on Saturday. The first look of the CW series “The Flash” has also come out.
