With more information on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League scheduled to be revealed at DC FanDome next month, here’s your first look at some new artwork from the game. The release – developed by Batman Arkham Knight creator Rocksteady Studios – features Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark, all of whom are included in the new image.
The press release explains: “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will combine the studio’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action to deliver a gaming experience unlike any other. Set in the richly detailed open-world Metropolis, the game’s original narrative follows the four Suicide Squad members as they take on an impossible mission to save Earth and kill the World’s Greatest DC Super Heroes.”
The previously announced DC FanDome panel is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 16th October at 6PM BST. Remember, there’ll also be news on co-op spin-off Gotham Knights, and key art for that was also revealed earlier in the month. Are you looking forward to learning a little more about this release? Let us know in the comments section below.
Is this game a live-service/always-online thing or just like older Arkham games?
@Retro1994 They've not really said too much, maybe we'll find out more at DC FanDome.
I really find it difficult to get excited about this one knowing a) Harley Quinn is absolutely excrutiating as a character in Rocksteady's games, and b) I don't know who any of the other characters are. Sharkman and two boring looking fellas. Whatever.
@johncalmc deadshot was in arkham origins, city and knight (tho I’m not sure if this is the same one as it’s the same universe but in the arkham games he was white). King shark has been a pretty big comedic character ever since the harley quin show, he’s supposed to be a smart brute but recent interpretations showed him as a cute dummy, captain boomerang is an australian stereotype.
This is just going to be another live service shooter isn't it?
Live sevice and good story rarely go well together.
@Chaotic_Goat I have fairh with RockSteady, they've done a pretty good job with their last few games.
Their last game (excluding that VR thing) was Arkham Knight in 2015. Have they really been working on Suicide Squad for 6 years??? 7 by the time it’s released... Crazy.
Cant wait for this. I just want to hear the confirmation that its not a GaaS like the Avengers and its a day one buy for me.
@Ken_Kaniff @Chaotic_Goat @NinjaWaddleDee @Retro1994 This game should not be live-service/GaaS, Rocksteady has no history of making such games.
However that can always change and it could be the first exception...hopefully not the case though.
I said before I hope they do a SS game like Peace Walker, in that you can choose one of the 4 characters for each mission (sometimes teaming up for the harder ones) and there'd be different types (assassination, gather intel, steal a document or weapon etc) and then being able to approach the mission how you wanted. If it's an assassination mission you could choose Harley and just go crazy up close, or use Deadshot and plan your perfect sniper shot from a huge distance. I don't think this will be that.
Also, it best be better than Arkham Knight because that was a huge disappointment.
@KidBoruto I hope your right, but look at Crystal Dynamics. They didnt have a history with it either. It boils down to the all mighty dollar. As with Square Enix if Warner Bros sees an interesting concept and can monetize the hell out of it they will. It just scares me because Rocksteady haven't confirmed its single player and its got that GaaS feel to it. Who knows though, but we will see soon enough.
I have the feeling they were working on something else entirely but then scrapped that project and moved on to this. Maybe years from now we will learn more about it on Unseen64 or something.
@PegasusActual93 Some rumours pointed that they were working on a Superman game but dropped it.
Shouldve stopped at arkham knight ending was fitting
@Retro1994 Current rumor is WB Montreal is working on a Superman game on top of their Gotham Knights game.
@darkswabber This is not the same deadshot. Rocksteady's explanation is that the Deadshot from City and Origins (hes not in Knight) was actually a "fake" Deadshot passing for Floyd Lawton (pretty dumb and makes no sense but whatev). I'm willing to give the game a shot as I'm a huge Arkham and Rocksteady fan, plus as we've seen, as long as characters are well written, you can pick ANY character from DC Comics and make it good (The Suicide Squad proved that to an extent).
@Ken_Kaniff You have a good point there, Crystal Dynamics had never done live-service before Avengers.
