WB Montreal has dropped their reveal of their new game Gotham Knights. Rocksteady, it’s your turn. After much anticipation for their next game in development, the first teaser poster was dropped a week ago revealing their production of a Suicide Squad game. Shortly after that we were finally given the name Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Now DC Fandom has finally arrived and with it, the details we have been waiting for on this highly anticipated reveal.
The trailer revealed four playable characters with Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark and Captain Boomerang. A bright and vibrant Metropolis is seen under attack by Brainiac and his forces. The Squad is sent out on a mission by Amanda Waller to take out a super powered target, after taking out a small army of Brainiac robots the target is revealed to be the Man of Steel. During the panel with Will Arnett and the Squad, the Squad reveals their mission from Waller was to hunt the Justice League. Unknown which members of the League we would be hunting (other than Superman), targeting Batman and the Flash.
Game Director Sefton Hill announced the game would be a continuation of their acclaimed Arkham games. The game will allow players to play as four of the members revealed so far and each will have a unique style of gameplay to each character, while also having a similar feel as the previous Arkham games. Hill also revealed the game will be both single player and multiplayer, single player will allow players to switch between Squad members.
Unfortunately, there was no gameplay footage. However, it might be too soon to see a gameplay trailer since the game is scheduled for a 2022 release date and will be available for PS5 and Xbox Series X. With Brainiacs arrival and Waller wanting the League hunted down, perhaps this is an evil variation of the League or maybe some sort of mind manipulation from Brainiac. We will have to wait another two years until we find out. Regardless we are excited to see the Arkhamverse continue with Rocksteadys interpretations of the Suicide Squad.
