Our Most Wanted Games of 2022 – #5 Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Most Wanted 2022 Suicide Squad Header

As we continue our list of most wanted games in 2022, we’re stepping into the rarified air of the top 5 games. Considering their status, we’re also going to slow things down quite a bit to take a slightly longer look at each game in turn.

So who’s clinched the fifth spot on the list? Well, it’s a game that we’ve been waiting on for over half a decade…

It’s been six and a half long years since the release of Batman: Arkham Knight in fairly early in the PS4 and Xbox One era, and that’s felt like a lifetime for anyone waiting on Rocksteady’s next game. For the longest time, the rumours swung back and forth between whether they were developing a Superman game or a Suicide Squad game. In the end, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was revealed in August 2020 at the DC FanDome stream as a new generation PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC exclusive.

We still have plenty to learn about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, but with a couple more trailers released in the last few months, we do know a few key things. The game is continuing the video game universe that Rocksteady cooked up for their acclaimed Batman: Arkham games, with the Suicide Squad being forcibly sent into a Metropolis that’s been devastated by Brainiac’s invasion of Earth.

Worse, Brainiac has managed to brainwash the Justice League with Superman and Flash clearly under his influence. How could Task Force X possibly stand up to such a threat? I mean, you’ve got Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark in the squad, and they’re not exactly the most superpowered set of villains out there. Still, we do know that, as they battle through an open-world Metropolis, each one will have particular abilities to call upon. 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.

From the gameplay reveal, it looks like a fair bit of fun, especially with co-op play in the mix. When playing solo, you’ll have the whole Suicide Squad at your command, able to hop between the four of them with AI controlling the other characters, but there’s also full four-player co-op built in that could be an absolute riot. There’s also a wicked twist to the game’s tone, keeping in line with the comics and films. We just have to hope it’s closer to ‘The Suicide Squad’ and less ‘Suicide Squad’ with its script.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is coming out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2022.
