Is Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League Video Series Worth Watching?

Along with gameplay and live service reveal, we also got pre-order details.


Suicide Squad

Rocksteady had its first of many reveals for Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League today, showing off their live service plans and detailing the pre-orders.


Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League didn't have the most triumphant reveal the first time. The live service aspect wasn't fully explained, and we couldn't get past the purple globes on all enemy types that were hitboxes.


The game was first announced in 2020 and was supposed to be released in May 2023 but was hit with delays to February 2024, and the new trailer has shown the delays were needed.


The purple glow is still there, but they mapped out the gameplay better and let everyone know that, as in all RockSteady games, the story they will tell is essential. As a fan of DC Comics, this was my biggest worry after the first reveal trailer we saw of Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League.




They let us know that you can play this game with your friends or in single-player mode and seamlessly change from one character to another. They explained that Metropolis is twice the size of a world map as Arkham City was.


Rocksteady went into more detail about how each villain you use will play differently from each other, which was a relief as the previous trailer made it seem as if all the characters just used their guns and have many differences besides looks.


They avoided mentioning the game's live service aspect but focused on the story and the world, which is set in the same universe as the Arkham series, which many of us love.


However, let's not kid ourselves because this is a live service game with a season pass, as mentioned in their pre-order details.


After watching the video, I have now become cautiously optimistic about Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League. I don't mind that it's a live service game as long as the story is good and the gameplay is fun Rocksteady may have a hit on their hands.


Only time will tell if Suicide Squad: Kills the Justice League has redemption here in the eyes of gamers, but I hope so.


Let us know in the comments what you thought of the reveal today.
