Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been hotly anticipated since its announcement back at DC FanDome 2020. The latest title from Rocksteady Games will focus on the various characters of the Suicide Squad (i.e. Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, and Deadshot), taking down some of the biggest heroes in the DC Universe.
While not much is still known about how Kill the Justice League will play, it has a style that has been unseen from the Batman Arkham series the London-based studio made its name working on.
Now, more than a year later, gamers finally have another look at the upcoming title.
Let's Kill the Justice League
A new Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League trailer dropped as a part of DC FanDome 2021.
The new footage from the Rocksteady-helmed project featured Task Force X taking on the heroes of the DC world, like the Flash, Superman, and Green Lantern. Batman villain Oswald Cobblepot (aka the Penguin) even made an appearance, cowering in fear from Harley Quinn and co.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S next year.
The full trailer can be seen below:
Rocksteady Ready for More DC Action
The world is in the middle of a superhero gaming renaissance, and Rocksteady is the studio largely responsible for that. Its series of Batman Arkham titles laid the groundwork for the digital comic book adventures that the world is going to see over the next couple of years. So it is exciting to see what this studio is continuing to play in that space with Kill the Justice League.
Taking a look at the new trailer, there is plenty of info to glean from the three-minute teaser. While Superman was shown off in the initial trailer that debuted last year, it is exciting to see the other members of the Justice League here in the Rocksteady universe.
One of the biggest aspects that should pique fans is the inclusion of someone like Penguin. On past projects, this team has taken the plunge into the minutia of the DC lore, so it could be expected that that trend would continue here; however, it is nice to see that in action. But where does that stop? How deep into the weeds will they go?
Gamers will have to wait until Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches sometime in 2022 to find out.
