While it may take a while before we get to see the Suicide Squad to square off with the Justice League on the big screens, you will get to see them battle it out…in a video game. As a special treat to DC fans worldwide, Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios launched the latest trailer for the “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” at the recent Game Awards 2021.
In the trailer, Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, and Deadshot all show off their respective powers and abilities in what looks like an epic city-wide battle. Each member showcased their own unique fighting style based on their strengths and unleashed a slew of cool weapons including Harley’s signature baseball bat, blasters, and weaponized boomerangs.
The team faces off against a corrupted version of the Flash and other demonic creatures running amok in the city. Though they weren’t featured in the latest gameplay trailer, other members of the Justice League will likely appear in the game, too, based on the title and premise.
In the upcoming game, you can fight the Justice League by yourself, but there’s also a four-player cooperative multiplayer mode. In solo mode, players can switch between characters at will, while others are controlled by the AI.
It was announced that “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” will be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. There was no mention of the game coming to past-gen consoles, including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
While the actual launch date was not disclosed, you can expect the upcoming game to drop worldwide in 2022. In the meantime, you can hype yourself up by watching the trailer. It’s bound to be a fun, bloody ride.
