Developer Rocksteady Studios has pulled back the curtains on the free seasonal content coming to Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League after the game’s launch on February 2. Season 1 will kick off in March and includes the most famous villain in the DC roster: The Joker. Not only is The Joker joining the game, but he’ll be a new playable member of the Suicide Squad.
Notably, this take on The Joker is not the Mark Hamill-voiced character from the Batman: Arkham series. Instead, Brainiac is pulling Elseworlds together in an attempt to merge them into a unified multiverse. This is how The Joker in Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League joins the roster. In his universe, he was already a member of the Suicide Squad. His playstyle is fast and dynamic and requires players to stay moving, according to Rocksteady.
Check out The Joker in Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League in action in the video below:
As you can see, this video teases other villainous appearances and locations, like a Gotham City Police Department floating in space by flowing lava and a frozen locale that might be teasing Mr. Freeze.
Alongside The Joker, players will have a new playable environment to explore that looks like a chemical factory-turned-funhouse by the man himself, plus new boss fights and enemy variants, including new variants of Green Lantern and Superman, according to Rocksteady’s Season 1 teaser, which you can view below:
Other Season 1 additions include new DC villain-themed weapons and gear, new Riddler content, new activities and strongholds, and two new episodes of narrative content – these episodes will be centered on Two-Face and Scarecrow.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League hits PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on February 2.
