Rocksteady has under development a Suicide Squad game.
The game studio behind the praised Batman: Arkham series is ready to bring a new, fantastic title. The news emerged after the company posted on Twitter a poster and a launch date, August 22.
The Suicide Squad game has been rumored for so long, and while Rocksteady has finally published the first details, we’ll have to wait a while before we learn more about it. Here is what you need to know.
Suicide Squad The Game: Possible Multiplayer Mode and Other Features
The news comes from Rocksteady’s official Twitter. The post reads: “Target locked – #DCFanDome – August 22. #suicidesquadgame.” There is also an image of Superman in a red-and-purple glow with a “Suicide Squad” logo on his head.
The tweet doesn’t offer us many details. Instead, it explains that we’ll find out more about the Suicide Squad game on August 22 during the DCFanDome online event.
The event will be available for a full 24 hours, and if you want to access DC FanDome, log into the official DC FanDome website.
Unfortunately, we don’t know what type of game Suicide Squad, but we can guess thanks to Rocksteady’s previous DC titles. We could get to control a supervillain and fight off opponents with sleek, counterattack-based melee combat.
We can also expect a different direction, especially since Suicide Squad is a group rather than a lone hero, like Superman. Perhaps a multiplayer mode or mission-based gameplay to fully portrays the Suicide Squad’s mercenary nature.
There are a few things to unpack for those who don’t know much about the DC Comics world. The Suicide Squad is considered one of the most known groups of DC Comics supervillains. The group of such characters has been around since the ’50s and has included many members.
New characters include Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, and El Diablo. The Suicide Squad joins forces not to commit crimes, but to do shady things for government organizations that superheroes would never do.
