Rocksteady Studios’ New Open-World Action-Shooter Introduces an Original Take on the Suicide Squad, Blending Traversal and Combat to Deliver a Unique Gaming Experience
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, a new genre-defying open-world action-shooter, is now available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam) as part of the Deluxe Edition. The Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Standard Edition will launch worldwide on Feb. 2.
Developed by Rocksteady Studios, creators of the best-selling Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League combines the studio’s signature character-driven storytelling with a seamless fusion of enhanced traversal mechanics and fast-paced, action-packed combat, which can be enjoyed solo or with up to four players via an online cooperative mode.
Featuring an original narrative set in the DC Universe against the backdrop of the vibrant open-world of Metropolis,Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League picks up five years after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight as players take on the roles of DC Super-Villains Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, the Squad has no choice but to band together as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X and embark on an impossible mission to defeat the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, the Justice League. With a story deeply rooted in DC lore, players must face off against Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, who have all been corrupted by Brainiac, while enlisting the help of various support Squad allies, including Penguin, Poison Ivy, Toyman, Rick Flag, Lex Luthor, and other notable figures.
With the launch of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, we are excited to take players on an adventure unlike anything we have ever played or made before at Rocksteady,
said Darius Sadeghian, Studio Director, Rocksteady Studios.
I'm so proud of what we've created together: our original story set in the DC Universe, the vibrant open-world of Metropolis, the unique combination of gameplay elements, and our amazing cast of villains – Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. We are thrilled to have a direct connection with players, which will allow us to continually update the game and keep playing with our community.
