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. Several teasers have also come to the fore in recent months, with the latest one giving fans a look at a major villain who’s joining the game post-launch. Unfortunately, the previously mentioned snippet also came with a disappointing detail, as one leaker revealed that typical Joker VA Mark Hamill would not be voicing the Clown Prince of Crime this time.

Here, we’ll cover what the new expected release date is, as well as everything else we know so far about the title. Of course, if you’re curious to know what the year’s release calendar looks like, check out our comprehensive 2024 upcoming games release schedule. Otherwise, keep reading to find out when Rocksteady will launch their anti-heroic project.

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.”

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League is playable on the following platforms:

Unfortunately, previous-gen console owners will not be able to experience the anti-heroic exploits of the fearsome foursome at launch since the game is exclusive to current-gen platforms. With its launch still relatively far off, though, there’s still plenty of time to upgrade your gaming system if you’re eager to see just what Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang have in store.

Can I play Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League early?

Yes, those who pre-order the Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League Deluxe Edition can play the game early through a 72-hour early access period.

Is there a Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League pre order bonus?

Yes, those who pre-order the Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League Standard or Deluxe Editions can get Classic and Rogue Outfits for all four of the game’s protagonists in addition to the base game. As mentioned above, however, players who purchase the more expensive version will also be able to play the game early through a 72-hour early access period.

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League editions

Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League is available in two editions – the Standard and Deluxe Edition – with both containing the base game along with the same cosmetic pre-order bonuses.

So, if you plan on playing the game for a long time, you may want to opt for the more expensive alternative.

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 that, we got a longer cinematic trailer titled “Ticking,” which offered some clarification on the premise and story beats of the game.

We’ve seen more since then too. Standing out in particular is a trailer Warner Bros shared 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.

A few weeks ahead of the game’s official release, Warner Bros also released an in-depth gameplay trailer to the tune of Blur’s Song 2 that gave players an even better look at the anti-heroic action within the game.

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 Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang are all forcibly encouraged into becoming a task force for the government, in exchange for sentence reductions. As the team name suggests, the ruthless higher-ups primarily send the team on missions that most people wouldn’t come back from. This iteration of the team is based in the same universe as Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham games, set five years after the previous title.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League release date: A giant mechanised worm looms over Metropolis in front of a skyscraper, glowing bright purple with energy.

Sent into Metropolis on a covert mission, the team quickly discovers 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 rogue 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 heroes looks to have its own unique attacks and abilities, which will likely offer a significant amount of versatility when it comes to combat engagements.

The game, much to the chagrin of most players, 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 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.
