The gameplay launch trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has arrived ahead of the game’s release early next month, giving fans an energetic taste of what’s to come from the four anti-heroes. The gameplay is trying something new other than the Batman Arkham games which developer Rocksteady is known for, giving players more verticality in the sprawling open-world of Metropolis.
The gameplay launch trailer is themed to the famous track “Song 2” by British rock band, Blur. As the trailer shows, players will be able to take control of either Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot or Captain Boomerang and, well, kill the Justice League who are seemingly being mind-controlled by Brainiac. We’ll be up against famous superheroes such as The Flash, Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and more heroes from the DC universe.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is a departure from Rocksteady’s signature combat seen in the Batman Arkham games. This time, a lot of emphasis is placed on freely zipping around Metropolis, leaping from rooftops and gunning down hordes of enemies with style. The response has been mixed from players, though some remain hopeful that the final product will end up being worthwhile.
This week, Rocksteady broke down the end game content for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League as well as post-launch plans for looting and builds inspired by the Diablo series. Despite having plans to support the game after launch with plenty of updates and content to keep players invested, Rocksteady says it doesn’t consider the game a ‘live service’ product.
The description for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League reads:
“Join the newly “recruited” members of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X (aka the Suicide Squad), Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark, as they set out on an impossible mission to Kill the Justice League. Drop into an expansive and dynamic open-world Metropolis ravaged by Brainiac’s invasion and terrorized by the heroes who once protected it.”
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League launches on 2 February 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Watch the gameplay launch trailer below:
