Suit up, Task Force Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
At Rocksteady, storytelling and character depth are essential to our games. With Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, we wanted to explore the world we started in the Batman: Arkham series, but now through the eyes of the villains, combined with chaotic, action-packed combat and crossover gameplay that truly comes to life. in PlayStation 5.
Over the next few months, we’ll be giving you a deeper look at the game with our new Suicide Squad Insider video series. In the first episode, you’ll hear various members of the Rocksteady team talk about the original story, dynamic open world, fast-paced gameplay, and more.
At the heart of our game is an impossible mission: take down the Justice League… and how the Suicide Squad reacts when given this life-or-death directive. But even when you complete Amanda Waller’s most challenging objectives, you’ll be able to stay on track with PlayStation 5 Activity Cards.
Our story takes place in a besieged metropolis, under the ever-present gaze of Brainiac’s Skull Ship. The massive city of tomorrow is more than twice the size of Gotham in Batman: Arkham Knight and is packed with missions, patrolling enemies, and secrets to uncover as you progress through the campaign. Most importantly, we designed Metropolis to be a playground for your transversal skills. We’ve used PlayStation 5’s SSD optimization to really push the limits of freedom when it comes to navigating the city, so getting around the environment is fast and intuitive.
With the deck so stacked against them, the squad will have to prepare. Which, of course, means stealing everything that isn’t nailed to the ground. By making use of iconic DC tools and gadgets, our DC supervillains can move around the city at a good clip and take the fight to Brainiac.
Harley Quinn powers up her natural acrobatic prowess with Batman’s Grapnel Gun, which can be used on nearby rooftops to quickly get upright. By holding on to the Bat Drone, the mistress of chaos can trace large circular arcs across the city. Once you master her journey, you’ll see why she’s no longer anyone’s companion.
Deadshot has Gizmo’s jetpack to fly around Metropolis in style. This offers an unparalleled degree of precision to the master assassin, and with the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers, we make sure you can feel every perfect shot.
Captain Boomerang has stolen a prototype Speed Force Gauntlet developed by Doctor Sivana and can use his boomerang to focus his abilities. He feels the raw power of the slightly bent sticks with the dynamic haptic feedback of the DualSense controller as you remind Brainiac’s forces why you are Australia’s top marksman.
For such a sophisticated being, King Shark has a remarkably straightforward approach to play. Nanaue unleashes her demigod-like strength to tear through hordes of enemies, leap great distances, and crash to the ground in a wave of destruction. He hears every desperate cry for help, every shattered sidewalk, and every alien-turned-friend on the PlayStation 5’s 3D audio as King Shark leaves a trail of destruction in his wake.
All of these traversal skills were designed from the ground up to make you feel good both moving around Metropolis and in combat. Whether it’s raining down a hail of grenades as you swing from the Bat Drone, firing your shotgun between Speed Force races, or taking out enemies while jetpacking through the skies, the game always feels fluid, chaotic, and downright villainous.
In future episodes of Suicide Squad Insider, we’ll give you a closer look at the game’s fast-paced gameplay and combat, along with the customization and upgrading you’ll need to stand a chance against the Justice League.
Don’t forget, you can reserve the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Standard or deluxe editions now on PlayStation 5 and receive four classic-themed Suicide Squad outfits, one for each member of the Squad.
