Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Trailer Debuts at DC FanDome
First announced back in June, the fully-virtual, 24-hour DC FanDome convention has finally arrived as of August 22. The 24-hour FanDome event will give DC fans a gamut of otherworldly panels, announcements, and content to chew on. Most importantly, it’s already been the location for some juicy new video game reveals; namely, Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
The latest from London-based Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Studios, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League brings fan favorites like Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang directly to players’ fingertips for the first major video game production in the series.
If you haven’t followed any of the preceding comic books or seen the 2016 live-action film, Suicide Squad, the titular ‘Suicide Squad’ is a band of DC villains who have been captured and weaponized by the government, forced to carry out dangerous jobs lest they get blown to bits by bombs implanted into their heads. Fancy stuff!
Unfortunately for longtime DC video game fans, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League may not be the Batman: Arkham Knight sequel that many have been waiting for (h/t Tim Brinkhof of ScreenRant). But still, even as a unique property, it’s exciting to see Suicide Squad finally make its way into the gaming space. Check out the trailer below.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will likely release on the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PC at some point in 2022.
