It’s all about DC FanDome 2021 event this time and we got to see many sneaks of some of the most anticipated movie titles coming out of the DCU. During the event, Warner Bros. Games and Rocksteady presented the first in-game story trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
The brand-new story trailer sheds light on the origins of Amanda Waller’s infamous Task Force X (a.k.a. the Suicide Squad) as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark begrudgingly embark on their mission to take down the World’s Greatest DC Super Heroes, The Justice League. Featuring an original narrative set within an expansive open-world Metropolis, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League puts the four DC Super-Villains on a collision course with an invading alien force and DC Super Heroes who are now laser-focused on destroying the city they once vowed to protect. All the while, the squad must be mindful of the lethal explosives implanted in their heads that could go off at the first sign of defiance.
The trailer showed some major Batman: Arkham references, which makes sense given that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is supposed to be set in that universe.
We can also see Wonder Woman fighting a corrupted Superman, and giant robotic hands in the sky suggesting that Justice League members have been turned by Brainiac. However, since Wonder Woman is fighting with superman we can conclude that Brainiac was unsuccessful in turning all of JL members evil.
The game is confirmed to be launching at some point next year on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S|X. We expect it to launch in the latter half of 2022.
