Rocksteady/Warner Bros. Games

It’s been over a year since Rocksteady and Warner Bros. revealed their Suicide Squad game, but now they’re finally ready to offer another peek — if not necessarily the one you were expecting. They’ve released a story trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League that shows the formation of Task Force X and explains why your band of supervillains (Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and King Shark) has to destroy some of Earth’s greatest heroes.

As it turns out, Brainiac has possessed the Justice League and is using heroes to wreak havoc. The Task Force is the first unit to make it into Metropolis alive, as X organizer Amanda Waller explains. It’s also clear that Harley and crew aren’t exactly eager volunteers, as their heads are “ticking.” Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash also get some attention in the trailer, and even The Penguin makes an unusual cameo appearance.

There’s unfortunately no gameplay in this trailer, and the developers haven’t committed to a more specific release date than “2022” for the PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. Even so, this gives you a better idea of what to expect: plenty of witty banter, a world turned on its head and an almost casual approach to violence. The main question is simply whether Rocksteady can build on the reputation from its Batman games and deliver action on par with this teaser footage.
