Rocksteady Studios, the developers of Batman: Arkham Asylum, City, and Knight, has launched the initial episode of the Suicide Squad Insider series. This series will provide a detailed breakdown of various aspects of the upcoming game Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League until its release in February next year. The first episode delves into the story and gameplay of the third-person action shooter, featuring over 20 minutes of new gameplay footage and behind-the-scenes insights.
Before the action begins, the Suicide Squad navigates through a Hall of Heroes-style exhibition for the Justice League. They experiment with various Justice League tools like speedster braces, jetpacks, and even unique items like Riddler’s hat of invisibility. It’s in this setting that they discover the real threat they face – not just Brainiac, who has taken over Metropolis, but also a Brainiac-controlled Justice League.

Aside from the gameplay, Rocksteady hints at plenty of easter eggs, featured villains such as Penguin, and a wide array of loot. Additionally, they address concerns about the shift from single-player narrative driven action to live-service multiplayer gameplay. This move aims to reassure fans of Rocksteady’s reputation for immersive storytelling and engaging gameplay.
Furthermore, it’s revealed that each member of the Suicide Squad has a unique way to move through Metropolis. For example, Captain Boomerang uses a special speedster device to emulate the Flash’s speed and agility. Additionally, each character possesses a distinct melee attack and specializes in different weapon types, adding variety to the gameplay experience.
The next episode of Suicide Squad Insider promises a deep-dive into more gameplay, combat mechanics, and strategies for players to take on the enemy in their own unique style.
Rocksteady announced Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League in August 2020 and released the first trailer later that month. It wasn’t until December 2021 that the first gameplay footage was revealed. Subsequent gameplay showings left some fans disappointed due to news of a battle pass and a shift towards a more live-service focused content model. However, in April of the following year, Rocksteady decided to delay the game until 2023 to ensure the best possible experience for players.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is set to be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on February 2, 2024.
