Warner Bros has just revealed the second of its DC FanDome announcements, and it's the one we've all been waiting for. Rocksteady went dark after Batman: Arkham Knight and now it's back with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League for PlayStation 5. It's slated to launch for Sony's next-gen console at some point in 2022. The developer describes the game as a blend of Batman: Arkham action combined with intense gunplay.
The announcement trailer is surprisingly colourful, despite Metropolis being a bit of a warzone. It can be played as a single player game or in multiplayer with a four-person team online -- you'll be joined by bots if you're on your own. You're never locked to any single character either, meaning you can switch between them as and when you like. Rocksteady completely avoided the topic of Games as a Service during its initial pitch -- a model the experience has been rumoured to adopt -- so we may have to wait for more details on that front.
You'll be able to play as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark in a story which pitches the team against DC's greatest superheroes. David Haddad, Rocksteady president, said that the experience will combine masterful storytelling with compelling gameplay: "The team is creating a genre-defining experience that brings the formidable Suicide Squad to life in a way that has never been done before."
