Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Official Reveal Trailer -- "Alpha Target"

Surely they meant 2020, right? Rocksteady hasn't released anything of note since 2015. What have they been doing for the past 5 years?

Could be that it started like a different project and changed and/or started cross gen and decided to make it next gen.

I'll wait to see gameplay but there's just something about suicide squad I find unappealing. The entire IP always comes across as some failed edgy cartoon from the 90's.

I'm not into comics and I think even I could name like 10 DC characters I'd prefer to see in game form.

The fact they are describing it as a Coop shooter is probably the most disappointing part. Don't we have enough of those ?

Dev: We want to make a action RPG

Publishers; Hey what’s that chicken dinner game ?

This could go two ways:

It could be a Sunset Overdrive like game with an interesting fun open world, fast gameplay, agile traversal, stylish moves and entertaining enemies..... Or it could be an boring gaas Avengers like game....


Curious about the gameplay and if it will have leveling, customization and loot...

It's confirmed to be a shooter isnt it?

Ask me about my Stream Deck
I am literally shocked at the negative response in this thread? Did GAF hate the Arkham games? This looks more fun than the knights game if we are just comparing cg trailers.

  • Playable characters are Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot and Captain Boomerang
  • Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a direct continuation of the Arkhamverse
  • Rocksteady, 2022, PS5, XSX, PC
  • 1-4 Player Co-op or Single Player with Bots

Did they say only online co-op? I hope they have 2 player local 🙏

For all those whining about the way the characters look, you know they are going to have alternative costumes right? I would be exceptionally surprised if they didn't at least.

Honestly this looks so similar to the knights game. Will be interesting to see which is better when the dust settles.
Love me some rocksteady.

Confirmed to be Arkhamverse. I guess Deadshot just decided to switch races.
Dude I came here to say the same thing, literally blackwashed a character in their own universe just because? They should have just used any other black character like Bronze Tiger. This honestly doesn't look too hot. Character selection is meh, and since when can Captain Boomerang teleport like Noctis? I'll reserve full judgment for the trailer, but with all the fuckery they did to the Arkhamverse in Arkham Knight, I'm reluctant. I'm actually happier to see Arkham Knights is doing a new canon.

4 Player Coop or single with bots...So like a modern Marvel Ultimate Alliance maybe?

Either way, kind of hyped by the trailer. Have enjoyed every Batman game, and Harley is one of my favorite DC characters and they didn't pigeon hole the actors from the movie into the game so I'm happy. Should be fun, games are supposed to be fun folks.

So you have to have bots, meaning all the characters will have very specialized skills that you can't complete levels without.

My guess for classes:

Deadshot - Sniper
Harley Quinn - Melee, explosives/traps
Shark - Melee, Machine gun
Boomerang - Probably a mix of rogue skills, and several throwing weapons

Pros:

1) The Justice League will be fantastic villains and they're more of an attraction than the main cast. Superman was cool.
2) Metropolis looks cool

They probably acknowledge that at this point way more people are familiar with the film and Will Smith's role than the previous incarnation or the comic versions.

Comics have reimaged characters many times over the decades.

After creating so many wonderful single player experiences, I guess Rocksteady is also going the GAAS route, just like the Avengers game. Shame.
Also very poor selection of characters if I may add. I guess more notable and fan favourite characters will be locked behind a paywall or dlc. I'll pass.

The graphics in game will look exactly like the trailer, rocksteady are top tier so it is how it will be.

I'd always prefer single player me against everyone but I'll just use 3 bots and enjoy the game.

Some if Ya'll moaning the way that you continue to do on the majority of game reveals seriously makes me think you lot are in need of changing your hobby as its just moan after moan.

I'm 40 years old and as soon as I moan half as much as some of you lot on this thread I'm out. Noticed it seemed to be quite a few of the playstation fanatics doing the most moaning too so I'm going to have to try the ignore button as you lot make gaming morbid.

What about these two games would appeal to people who loved the incredible single player experiences that was the arkham trilogy? These two games seem to be for the destiny/anthem/avengers players.

I guess spiderman will be carrying the torch for us who loved the arkham games

Really curious to see what this even plays like. Rocksteady has basically just made 1 game over and over again. They made one combat system, and just refined it with minimal upgrades.

Judging by the trailer, you'll have third person shooting, and flying in this. Will be a completely different game than anything we've seen from them.

Even more reason to try and distance the character! :messenger_tears_of_joy:
That movie is universally hated.

All Cg. Pr talk. Token Hollywood "celebrity". 2022 release. One of the most disastrous reveals I've ever seen.

What a letdown.

I'll give rocksteady the benefit of the doubt for now. I would love to hear what has been going on there behind the scenes these last 5 or so years.

I'm also tired of games this far out being announced with CGI or "in-engine" trailers. I don't really want to see anything about a game until there's actual gameplay footage

I don't know any of the popular ones really:
Superman
Wonder Woman
Aquaman
Flash
Green Arrow
Green Lantern
Shazam
Batman Beyond
Constantine
Hawkman/woman
Teen Titans
Justice League
Watchmen (don't even know if this count as being "DC).

I honestly find any of those more appealing and I also think most if not all of them could have been turned into something more interesting than a co-op multiplayer shooter.

Do people really like Suicide Squad? I guess Harley is pretty popular but the other ones? Shark man and Mr boomerang or whatever?

Its even set in Metropolis. You can tell Rocksteady wanted to make Superman.

Heres the funny thing that people keep saying was not true:
It was an actual legit thing at one point due to some QAs fucking around during Arkham Knight development and they threw their idea at Rocksteady.

Not sure what happened to it, but I know it got far along that there was some stuff made. This is likely rements of it.

All the flavors in the world and you had to pick salty, GAF? Looks like a fine introduction to a project years away from completion.

I think people might wonder WTF has Rocksteady been doing for the past 5 years when a CGI trailer is all they have to show for it. And it's still two years out.
