    Play as the Suicide Squad, in Rocksteady’s latest game. Previously teased earlier this week, DC has officially announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, planned for launch in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. It’s an open-world game, with third-person shooter elements. You’ll be able to play as various members of the Suicide Squad, from Harley Quinn to Captain Boomerang, on your own, or in online co-op. The story takes place as a continuation of the Arkham series, though this time you’ll be playing as the bad guys, trying to take down Superman and the rest of the Justice League.

    I'm going to be honest. I actually see potential in this.

    Yeah it looks decent, though I'm always wary of trailers with no gameplay, and I kind of wish they were basing this on the animated or comic version of the Suicide Squad rather than the live-action dumpster fire. Oh well.

    I wonder about that...Supes seems either possessed or reprogrammed in the trailer. Probably by Brainiac based on the bigass technoskull in the middle of the city. If it's the same for the rest of the Justice League, then technically you'd be the good guys by taking them out.

    I get the feeling that this game is not gonna be good based on the title alone.

    about as on the nose as they could have possibly been with the subtitle but it seems like it might be interesting to look at once there is actual gameplay

    IDK...third person shooter? Not exactly what I was expecting.

    I think it'd be cool if they made a game starring Superman with a Metroidvania progression: you start out strong at the beginning, but then, shit hits the fan and Supes goes back to square one, and you have to recover his abilities to make it to the end.

    Just...don't have him flying through rings...not like this, anyways:

    Either A) They wouldn't kill them or at least not all of them. B) They aren't killing the real League.

    C) They are killing the real League, but they will be replaced by successors and clones.

    Anyway, even a clone or a mind controlled Superman should have heard that boomerang coming. Funny, I know, but still.

    True, but he also wouldn't have registered it as a threat.

    Rocksteady is a quality studio. all three Arkham games they did were great. this should be good.

    I am not going to get my hopes up on this one, mostly because I stopped getting my hopes up on AAA games these days.

    Cool, they used Bombs over Baghdad. One of my favorite Outkast songs.

    I really despise CGI trailers. At least have the decency to show a quick game play montage at the end.

    That action sequence gave me some Left 4 Dead vibes which would be pretty dope if thats what they are doing. I honestly don't want any Arkham gameplay in this for a fresh game. That Suicide Squad mobile game was actually pretty fun and it was in the same vein.

    Considering how he's often compared to Goku, I'm sure a boomerang would be like trying to hurt him by throwing a tomato at him! XD

    This. Considering this is a new game on what I hope is a new engine using new assets, I'd love to see what the actual game looks like, because as much of a leap as they're trying to hype them up to be, I'm sure both Sony and Microsoft's offerings for consoles are gonna be outclassed by at least the RTX 3000 and, if Big Navi can actually bring some real competition to the market by having good driver support and the hardware mettle to match Nvidia, then I can see an Xbox Series XX as a mid-generation upgrade, followed by...the Xbox Series Xrd at the end of the life cycle.

    What did you think I was gonna say there? ;)

    I'd have to see the finished product before even considering trying it, the movie really damaged my perception of anything related to the series at this point.

    Just a question how you kill Superman or Flash? Since they can kill you in less than 1 sec?
