As announced, today studio Rocksteady served us a massive dose of information on the upcoming action game Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League.

A 20-minute video has hit the web as part of a new series advertising the game (below). It presented a solid portion of gameplay, as well as some story background.

  • It was reminded that the team of playable villains consisting of Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Deadshot - that is, Special Branch X - will act on behalf of Amanda Waller, director of the government agency ARGUS.
  • We will be able to switch freely between the characters outside of active missions.
  • Members of Special Squad X will make their way to the museum of Justice League heroes, where they will come into possession of iconic gadgets from the DC universe, which will enable them to travel great distances quickly and spectacularly.
  • The main opponent will be Brainiac, known from the Superman comics, who has invaded the city of Metropolis, turning its inhabitants into his soldiers.
  • What's more, Brainiac's "contamination" has also affected members of the Justice League - so they too will have to be defeated.
  • The four antiheroes controlled by the players are to act "behind enemy lines", and the warped city will play an important role in the story.
  • Suicide Squad will be equipped with deadly weapons - capable of injuring even Superman - by the well-known Penguin.
  • The story is to be full of cutscenes, as well as small talk and quips between the four working together - similar to what happened, for example, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Dynamic gameplay

Latest gameplay fragments from Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League have highlighted the key role that the game's movement system will play. It is fast and impressive, yet different for each of the four villains. All characters will also have a unique melee attack, a set of weapons that can be used, as well as a special ability known as "suicide strike."

In addition, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will feature minor RPG elements, such as character progression. It was also reiterated that we will be able to complete the game either solo or in co-op, and the title is expected to receive solid post-release support in the form of free content or a combat pass, among other things.

Better, which does not mean good, reception of the game

The latest video from Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has been more to the liking of gamers than the loudly criticized video from February, however, it's still hard to talk about excessive optimism.

Most of the commentators approach the game with caution, fearing that it was designed from the beginning with cooperative gameplay and game-as-a-service model in mind.

"The plot has potential, I like the style and graphics, and the movement and combat look cool. My main concern at this point is the mission design. Since we found out that this is a cooperative game, my expectations have almost completely disappeared, because a four-player cooperative game can't be designed like the Arkham series for a single player. Also, the live-service game environment can hurt. I see the potential, but the structure and the overall gameplay loop will be what will determine it [the success - editor's note]."

"I'm worried about the game, but at the same time I'm excited about it."

"No one doubts that the story will be good. That's what Rocksteady is doing. They're doing it right. However, I am worried about the nonsense that surrounds the storyline. After this video, I'm more cautious than ever before."

System requirements and price of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

On the occasion of the reveal, the developers from Rocksteady also presented us the game's system requirements and price.
