- Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is hitting shelves early next year, as confirmed lately.
- The devs have shown off the game’s traversal and more facets of its overall gameplay.
- Kill the Justice League will make landfall on February 2, 2024, with early access planned as well.
The folks over at Warner Bros. Games — Suicide Squad’s publisher — has launched a new YouTube series called Suicide Squad Insider, which will detail various facets of the title’s gameplay in an episodic manner as we near its global release date next year. The first entry in the series offers a closer look at the live service shooter, going over its traversal, story, and the world of Metropolis where all hell has broken loose.
The sub-20-minute footage constantly shows character abilities, Metropolis’ environment, free-roaming, and the starting phase of Suicide Squad’s plotline. It’s a live service all right, but seems to be attempting to push forward a story-driven campaign from what one can gauge right now. Around the 4th minute mark in the video, you can catch the opening sequences of the game’s story.
Over the next few months, we’ll be unpacking the game, answering your questions, and sharing a few surprises as we move closer to our launch on February 2nd. We’ll also cover how Rocksteady will continue to support the game and its players post-launch with a huge amount of free content.”
It’s worth mentioning that one of the devs in the video seemingly confirms that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s world is “twice the size of Gotham City in Arkham Knight.” Although bigger isn’t always better, this does open up possibilities for fun-filled side content, but, of course, that side of the spectrum has to be tailored with enough quality so as to entice players and keep them engaged.

We now also have an official release date for Suicide Squad as Rocksteady and WB Games plan on launching it on February 2, 2024. Until then, feel free to pre-order the third-person shooter—they went live mere hours from now and offer a choice between Standard and Deluxe editions. The former encompasses Classic and Rogue Outfits, while the latter boasts the benefit of a 72-hour early access period, and the following:
- The Full Game
- Justice League Outfits
- 3 Black Mask Notorious Weapons
- Squad Golds Weapon Dolls
- 1 Battle Pass Token
- No Shade Color Swatches (Digital Only)
- Early Access And Content From the Standard Edition
In other news, critics and fans have panned WB and Rocksteady for shifting toward a live service model after having manifested some of the best superhero games ever made—the Batman: Arkham franchise. Despite the harsh feedback, it was reported earlier this year that the devs do not plan on changing the core game and that Suicide Squad will continue to stick to this otherwise controversial format.
In that sense, therefore, the game is a continuation of the Arkham series and is supposed to come out in February next year for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
