DC fans looking for the Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League release date, story, and gameplay details are in the right place. The newest game from Batman Arkham developers Rocksteady will give superhero fans the chance to break bad as the reluctant villains-turned-heroes, the Suicide Squad.
The game has had a somewhat rocky development however – first being delayed into 2023 before more recently getting delayed once more into 2024. Here, we’ll cover what the new expected release date is, as well as everything else we know so far about the title.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League release date
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will arrive on February 2, 2024. As mentioned, this comes after two separate previous delays. The most recent delay, which pushed the game to its current expected arrival date, was announced just a month before release. Rocksteady told fans it intended to “work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for players”. The game will be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. It unfortunately won’t be coming to PS4 or Xbox One.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League trailers
Since the game has been in development for a while now, we have been fortunate to get a few different previews.
This started with the game’s teaser trailer, which arrived back in August 2020.
Following on from that, we got a longer cinematic trailer titled “Ticking”, which offered some clarification on the premise and story beats for the game.
We’ve seen more since then too. Standing out in particular is a trailer shown in Summer 2022 which paid tribute to Kevin Conroy’s performance for the game.
Conroy was undoubtedly the most famous and prolific actor to don the mantle outside of the movies, having first come to prominence in the role with the 90s Batman: The Animated Series. Sadly, his role in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be his final performance as the caped crusader, as Kevin Conroy passed away following a long illness back in November. The trailer honours him for his many years of service in bringing the character to life with a simple ‘Thank You Kevin’ with the Batman symbol at the end of the footage.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League story
The game’s plot revolves around the four members of an elite team of villains-turned reluctant heroes, The Suicide Squad. Harley Quin, Deadshot, King Shark and Captain Boomerang are all forcably encouraged into becoming a task force for the government, in exchange for sentence reductions. As the team name suggests, they’re primarily sent on missions that most people wouldn’t come back from.
This iteration of the team are based in the same universe as Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham games, set five years after the previous title.
Sent into Metropolis on a covert mission, the team quickly discover that members of the Justice League, including Green Lantern, Superman, The Flash and Batman, have been brainwashed by longtime comic book villain Brainiac. Wonder Woman appears to be the only member so far that has been able to resist.
Based on this premise and the name, it seems the case that from here, players will be tasked with taking control of the Suicide Squad’s members, and killing the rouge Justice League members.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League gameplay
The gameplay for this title looks to be set apart significantly from that of the Arkham games. While Metropolis will be an open world map much like Arkham City and Arkham Knight, this seems largely to be where shared features end.
For one, we know that this Suicide Squad title is going to focus on a faster, more dynamic tempo for its game, styling itself more as an action-adventure shooter. Each of the four not-quite-hero’s look to have their own unique attacks and abilities, which will likely offer a significant amount of versatility when it comes combat engagements.
The game is also set to be a live-service title. It’ll include a battle pass that will offer players cosmetic items, though no in-game boosts or bonuses. We also know the game supports co-op play, and presumably this will fit into the game’s campaign mode, allowing you to experience the explosive fun with friends.
That’s everything we’ve got for you on the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League release date, platforms, trailers, story and gameplay. There’s every chance we’ll learn more about the title as we near its 2024 release. In the interim, DC fans can still make do with Batman in WB’s MultiVersus – as well as the Caped Crusader’s appearance at the start of Gotham Knights.
