During this past weekend’s DC FanDome online event, the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game showed off a story trailer.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League made a splash at last year’s DC FanDome and the much-anticipated new game from Rocksteady Studios was back for more, debuting a thrilling new trailer that gave us our biggest glimpse yet at the game’s story, characters and tone, even if it did leave us feeling a bit bad for poor Penguin. (Nah, we’re kidding. Zap him again, Waller!)
“Welcome to Task Force X. Your mission? Kill the Justice League. Watch the official #StoryTrailer of #SuicideSquadGame in #4K. Coming in 2022 to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC,” states the video description.
Details include 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.
