‘Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’ release date, gameplay and latest news
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is the next game from beloved game studio Rocksteady. This is the team behind the main Arkham series, with its last game being 2015’s Arkham Knight. Kill the Justice League is a very different project altogether, offering multiplayer functionality in its campaign. The game can be played in singleplayer too, but the focus does seem to be playing with friends.
There are four playable characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League: Captain Boomerang, King Shark, Harley Quinn and Deadshot. Solo players can swap between these four characters at any time, similarly to how things worked in Arkham Knight. Those looking to play multiplayer can play with friends, each choosing one of Task Force X.
We’re still a little ways out from the release date of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, but we do have plenty to pore over while we wait. Here’s everything you need to know about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, including all of the latest trailers and latest news.

Finally, the ‘Shadows’ trailer, which debuted at The Game Awards 2022. This one features Batman, and ends with a touching tribute to Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy. This will be his last appearance as the caped crusader, as Conroy sadly passed away last year.
So far, we have seen one gameplay trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. In it, each of the four members of Task Force X was shown off, alongside their weapons and abilities. It appears as though all four will have access to ranged weapons, melee attacks, and then special abilities. It is clearly the abilities that will make each character feel unique.
Harley uses a grapple hook to get around, while King Shark runs fast up the side of buildings. Boomerang is the fastest, and can warp and use speed abilities to get around. Finally, Deadshot uses a jetpack to traverse the open world.
We’ll have to wait and see before we know exactly how each character will play in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. It’s clearly going to be important that each of the four playable characters feels unique, especially in multiplayer.
