Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Rocksteady at DCFanDome has officially announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League for the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PC. It will launch in 2022.

"Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League showcases Rocksteady Studios’ ability to combine masterful storytelling and compelling gameplay based on well-known DC characters," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. "The team is creating a genre-defining experience that brings the formidable Suicide Squad to life in a way that has never been done before."

Rocksteady Studios Creative Director and Co-founder Sefton Hill added, "Our team is excited to officially announce Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and provide a glimpse into our latest project. We’re introducing an original take on the Suicide Squad that combines the rich, character-driven storytelling Rocksteady is known for with innovative gameplay features to create a unique gaming experience."

Here is an overview of the game:

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.

Gives off of a fairly strong Sunset Overdrive vibe.

I'm hoping with Spider-man's success, we'd see a few more solo player based adventures, these 2 games seem MP PvE focused, which I'm not sure about personally. It's WB so I expect a micro transactions and online gameplay even when playing solo. I was saying to my friend that what i don't think many studio get is when we want MP adventures, we meant imagine Fallout where I'm playing the main story but my mate who also has the game can just join me as a companion during my adventure, is there even a game like that? I doubt it.

So you want a game like Borderlands?

Ha, yes of course, Borderlands. Played Borderlands 2 a lot but rarely with people. Helps if friends actually own it too. :P

Yes there is. There's Divinity Original Sin, Original Sin 2, and in not too long there'll be Wasteland 3, and Baldur's Gate 3. You're welcome.

Interesting that Rocksteady's 2021 game is announced for PS4/5 and the 2022 only for 5. Gives an idea of how long at least one developer intends to support current systems.

WB Montreal (Batman Arkham Origins) is developing Gotham Knights, not Rocksteady, Rocksteady is only developing Suicide Squad. But other than that, you're right. Can't say I'm surprised that 3rd party AAA games are almost entirely cross-gen in 2021 so far (except for LOTR Gollum and Resident Evil 8), it was much the same story in 2014 this gen, I can't think of any AAA 3rd party games that were PS4/XB1/PC only in 2014, they were all on PS3 and 360 as well. Most AAA publishers just aren't willing to make next-gen only games until the next-gen install base is a decent size.

It does look good, I just hope it plays good. Even though Arkham Knight was the lowest rated (and my least favourite of the series) it was still a phenomenal experience.
