It’s been confirmed that we’ll see both upcoming DC games Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Gotham Knights at this year’s DC Fandome event.
As spotted by GamesRadar, both games are listed in a new trailer for the event. It’ll take place virtually on Saturday, October 16 from 6pm UK time on the event’s official website and social channels. The event will also feature updates from several upcoming DC movies such as The Batman, Black Adam and more.
Both games were formally revealed at last year’s event, taking place last August. Batman: Arkham Asylum creator Rocksteady is working on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Said to follow on from the story set in that series, it’ll see Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot and Captain Boomerang tasked with taking in the DC Universe’s strongest heroes.
Gotham Knights, meanwhile, comes from Warner Bros. Games Montreal, responsible for Batman: Arkham Origins. It’s going down a more co-op action RPG route, and will let you play as Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin in a Batman-less Gotham.
We’ve not seen too much from either game since their reveals last year. While Suicide Squad: KTJL isn’t expected until 2022, Gotham Knights was originally set for this year until it was delayed into 2022 to “deliver the best possible experience for players.”
All being well (and pending any updates at DC Fandome 2021), both Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and Gotham Knights for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2022. The latter game will also launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 too.
