Onlangs werd Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, de volgende game van Rocksteady, aangekondigd. Vannacht heeft uitgever Warner Bros. tijdens DC FanDome de eerste trailer van de game getoond en die kun je hieronder bekijken.

Samen met de trailer zijn ook de eerste details van Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League uit de doeken gedaan. De game draait om Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang en King Shark, die het opnemen tegen de grootste DC superhelden. Je kunt de game in je eentje spelen en wanneer je dit doet, kun je op iedere moment wisselen tussen de vier speelbare personages. De andere personages worden dan door bots bestuurd. Het is ook mogelijk om de game met in totaal vier spelers in coöp te spelen.

Ieder speelbaar personage heeft een eigen moveset en unieke vaardigheden. Je kunt wapens upgraden en tevens is het mogelijk om Metropolis – zoals de open wereld heet – vrij te verkennen. Rocksteady omschrijft Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League als een mix tussen de verhaalgedreven actievolle gameplay die we van de studio kennen en third-person shooter gameplay.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League verschijnt ergens in 2022 voor de PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X en pc.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a new genre-bending action-adventure shooter that can be played solo or with up to four players in online co-op. Based on iconic DC characters and developed by Rocksteady Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League combines the studio’s signature character-driven story gameplay with third-person shooter action to deliver a gaming experience unlike any other. The game will be available worldwide in 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Featuring an original narrative set in the DC universe, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes place in a richly detailed open-world Metropolis. The story follows Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark who must take on an impossible mission to save Earth and kill the world’s greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Restrained with lethal explosives implanted in their heads, all four DC Super-Villains have no choice but to band together and carry out this untenable assignment as part of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X. Fans can tailor their experience, whether playing on their own as a single player, switching between characters at will, or teaming up with friends in multiplayer co-op.

The playable characters featured in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are Harley Quinn (a.k.a. Dr. Harleen Quinzel), the mistress of mayhem; Deadshot (a.k.a. Floyd Lawton), the most dangerous marksman alive; Captain Boomerang (a.k.a. Digger Harkness), Aussie assassin extraordinaire; and King Shark (a.k.a. Nanaue), the demigod humanoid shark and rightful ruler of the seas. Each squad member has their own unique moveset with enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis, along with a variety of weapons to customize and skills to master.
