We’ve finally seen real gameplay from Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Revealed at The Game Awards 2021, we got a look at gameplay for all four playable characters: King Shark, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, and Deadshot. After opening with footage of the Suicide Squad taunting the Flash by calling him the Justice League’s mascot, the trailer then cut to a gameplay montage filled with explosive combat. Take a look at some of the new shots below.
The fight took took place in a downtown city area, and showcased combat as crazy as you’d expect from the Suicide Squad. We saw clips of King Shark scaling buildings, using his fists for some blazing fast melee combat, and, yes, biting off an enemy’s head.
Harley Quinn used what looked like a grapple to swing through the air, and she whipped out her baseball bat om the ground to take out foes. We saw some third-person shooter combat from Deadshot, and it also seems you’ll have the ability to blast helicopters out of the sky.
No specific release date was given, but we know the game is coming in 2022 to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
First announced in 2020, Rocksteady’s first game after the Batman Arkham series is set in the same universe and allows up to four players to control the game’s antiheroes. Previously, we’ve seen a CG trailer and in-engine footage, but had never seen true gameplay.
