Suicide Squad pays tribute to Kevin Conroy

The newest trailer, which debuted at The Game Awards 2022, paid tribute to Kevin Conroy, the iconic voice actor for Batman. In the trailer, the Suicide Squad is on a mission, only to be interrupted by Batman — who states “I am vengeance, I am the knight! I am Batman!”

State of Play Gameplay Trailer

During Sony’s February 2023 PlayStation State of Play, Rocksteady unveiled an all-new gameplay trailer focused on co-op. The six-minute video offered a closer look at the mechanics of each playable Task Force X member, including Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, King Shark, and Harley Quinn.

The State of Play broadcast also proved the recent battle pass leaks held some merit. Developers confirmed that support for the game will continue after launch in the form of new playable characters, missions, and weapons. Meanwhile, the battle pass will exclusively target cosmetic items, though the specifics remain under wraps.

What is Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League?

The game is described as an open-world action-adventure shooter that can be played by up to four players (solo players can switch between characters at will). Amanda Waller has sent the team to investigate the appearance of longtime comic-book villain Brainiac, only to come up against Superman – who has been brainwashed.

Playable characters

The game’s mean team in all their glory

There are four playable characters, and they’ll all be familiar to longtime comic fans – or anyone that’s enjoyed the Suicide Squad movies.

Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang are included, presumably each with their own gameplay abilities.

Sadly, though, it appears the roster won’t be growing anytime soon. As reported by PCGamesN, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will eschew the live-service aspirations of something like Marvel’s Avengers.

So while we’d have loved an appearance by Killer Croc, you won’t get one in this outing.

Is it connected to Gotham Knights?

Despite launching at a similar time to WB Montreal’s upcoming Batfamily title, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League isn’t linked to the other title at all. In fact, it’s actually set in a different universe entirely.

It is, however, a continuation of the Batman Arkham universe, so there’s the potential for all sorts of villains and cameos from Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Origins, and Arkham Knight.
