Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League story
Suicide Squad picks up sometime after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight and sees Amanda Waller (AKA "The Wall") putting together a task force of Arkham inmates, known as the Suicide Squad. Their goal is to undertake a covert mission in Metropolis.
When the ragtag team arrives, they quickly realize that the supervillain Brainiac is attempting to invade the planet and has brainwashed the Justice League (including the Flash, Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern). To save the planet, the Suicide Squad needs to hunt down each brainwashed Justice League member and eliminate them - oh, and take down Brainiac.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League gameplay
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set in an open-world depiction of Metropolis, which will be like a larger-scale version of Rocksteady's Arkham City. This open-world approach should mean there's plenty to explore.
You have the option to play the game solo or multiplayer. Players who opt for solo play can switch between members of the squad as they please, with the uncontrolled team members being handled by AI to play alongside you. However, you will need an internet connection for this.
If you want friends to join you in multiplayer, they can jump into the shoes of the squad members you don’t want, with up to four players able at once.
The four playable characters (Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang) each have their own “unique moveset” and “enhanced traversal abilities”.
Harley is pretty agile, can land powerful melee attacks, and has a grappling hook in her arsenal; King Shark is all about brute force but can whip out a gatling gun when he needs it; Deadshot lends firepower to the group (capable of both sniping and aerial assaults). Finally, Captain Boomerang is extremely fast on his feet, with his boomerang taking out ranged enemies with ease.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League news
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed again, following fan reception of the State of Play showing in February 2023. This was announced in the Tweet below, which cites the team needing more time as the main reason for the delay.
Kevin Conroy is Batman
The late Kevin Conroy has been confirmed as the voice of Batman in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Conroy voiced Batman in all of the Arkham games, as well as in Batman: The Animated Series and various movies, so it's poignant to see he was able to lend his voice to Rocksteady's latest.
