The SUICIDE SQUAD: KILL THE JUSTICE LEAGUE Standard Edition will launch worldwide on 2 February 2024.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.
The four main playable characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League include:
- Harley Quinn, formerly known as Dr. Harleen Quinzel, is the one and only Clown Princess of Crime and the most acrobatic of the crew due to her grapple mechanic that allows her to swing through the city, thanks to gear she’s swiped from Batman. Harley Quinn is voiced by Tara Strong.
- Deadshot, also known as Floyd Lawton, is one of the deadliest marksmen in the DC Universe and can hover and snipe from almost anywhere on the battlefield with the use of his jetpack, although he’s just as comfortable getting up close and unloading with his wrist cannons. Deadshot is voiced by Bumper Robinson.
- Captain Boomerang, also known as Digger Harkness, is an Australian assassin with an unmatched talent for his namesake weapon and uses a stolen Speed Force Gauntlet to teleport in and out of close-range combat. Captain Boomerang is voiced by Daniel Lapaine.
- King Shark, also known as Nanaue, is a demi-god humanoid shark who hits hard and uses his powerful leaping ability to jump across buildings and take out hordes of enemies. King Shark is voiced by Nuufolau Joel Seanoa, better known by his All-Elite Wrestling (AEW) ring name, Samoa Joe.
Each member of the Suicide Squad has their own unique moveset equipped with enhanced traversal abilities, along with a variety of weapons to customize and skills to master. A deep character-progression system also allows for loadouts to be specifically tailored through weapons, gear, and ability upgrades for maximum personalisation.SUICIDE SQUAD: KILL THE JUSTICE LEAGUE takes place in a vast open-world Metropolis comprised of distinct districts that call for different types of gameplay, depending on the mission or activity, while displaying iconic DC landmarks, such as the Daily Planet, LexCorp, Hall of Justice, and others.
