Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a continuation of Rocksteady's Arkham-verse


Warner Bros. has released the debut trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, confirming a 2022 release on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

The trailer shows off the four playable characters in the game: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark and Captain Boomerang, killing bad guys in a Metropolis under siege. The setup is Amanda Waller has stuck bombs in the heads of the team members, forcing them on a mission to kill the Justice League, as the name of the game suggests. In return, the Suicide Squad members will receive a full pardon. Superman turns up, except it very much does not look like Superman.

During the DC Fandome event, Rocksteady co-founder Sefton Hill confirming Suicide Squad is a continuation of its Batman: Arkham-verse. This means story-threads in the Arkham series will be continued in Suicide Squad. Hill also confirmed Suicide Squad is set in an open-world Metropolis. It's a one to four-player co-op game. You can play it single-player, with the Squad filled by bots. But if you want to play multiplayer with your friends, they can take the role of the other squad members in online co-op. The whole game is accessible single-player or multiplayer, Hill said. If you're playing single-player, you can switch between the characters at will.

The announcement of Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn comes hot on the heels of a new statement from Rocksteady in response to sexual harassment accusations made against the studio this week.
