A new trailer has been shown off for Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, giving us a first real look at the hyperactive, violent action that we can expect when the game launches in 2022 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.


With The Flash as the main big good-bad that the team seem to be facing in the trailer, there’s also plenty of getting around the open world of Metropolis as the four playable characters: Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark. Each one obviously has their own particular abilities – Deadshot is great for providing covering fire, while King Shark can barrel into enemies, and Captain Boomerang has lots of great insults to fling alongside his boomerangs. It looks like a fair bit of fun, especially with co-op play in the mix.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was announced at the last DC Fandome in August 2020, and it’s actually quite impressive how close the graphics in the new story trailer (which could be presumed to be in engine) are to the fully CGI trailer from last year. The game was confirmed after years and years of speculation on what Rocksteady were developing after concluding their Batman: Arkham trilogy in 2015. Rumours had pointed to both Suicide Squad and Justice League games, with the truth being…. both!

One positive note is that, one year on from its reveal, Suicide Squad is still on target for a 2022 release. Everything else on Warner Bros. release slate has been delayed significantly, with pretty much all of their planned 2020 and 2021 games slipping to 2022 instead. In January Hogwarts Legacy was shoved from 2021 to 2022, which was followed by Gotham Knights also getting the heave-ho out of this year and into next and eventually LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The only game that’s made it out (despite being delayed) is Left 4 Dead successor Back 4 Blood, which arrived this year.
