The fully virtual 24-hour FanDome DC festival, which was first announced back in June, finally took place on August 22nd. Within its framework, fans of DC comics received a range of panels, announcements and food for thought. Most importantly, during the event, we were shown some exciting new games, including Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
New from London-based developer Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios, will bring heroes such as Harley Quinn, Deadshot and Captain Boomerang as key characters in this major project. Judging by the trailer, you can count on an abundance of black humor and evil Superman among the antagonists.
For those who haven’t followed the comic book of the same name or watched the 2016 action movie Suicide Squad, we’re talking about a gang of villains from Washington who have been captured and armed by the government to do dangerous jobs. In case of refusal, they will simply be blown to pieces by the bombs implanted in their heads.
During the DC Fandome, Rocksteady co-founder Sefton Hill confirmed that Suicide Squad is a continuation of the Batman: Arkham universe. This means that the storylines from the Arkham series will continue into Suicide Squad. He also confirmed that the action movie takes place in the open world of Metropolis. This is a cooperative action game for 1-4 players. It can be played with friends or in the company of bots. In single player mode, you can switch between characters.
While this is not a new part of Batman: Arkham Knight, it’s still nice to see Suicide Squad finally making its way into the realm of video games. The presented trailer looks impressive, especially if it is executed on the engine (judging by Harley Quinn’s hair, it is).
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be released on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5 and PC in 2022 – no more exact date has been announced We previously reported that WB Games Montreal introduced Gotham Knights, an open-world co-op action RPG.
