Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is the next game from beloved game studio Rocksteady. This is the team behind the main Arkham series, with its last game being 2015’s Arkham Knight. Kill the Justice League is a very different project altogether, offering multiplayer functionality in its campaign. The game can be played in singleplayer too, but the focus does seem to be on playing with friends.

So far, we have seen one gameplay trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. In it, each of the four members of Task Force X was shown off, alongside their weapons and abilities. It appears as though all four will have access to ranged weapons, melee attacks, and then special abilities. It is clearly the abilities that will make each character feel unique.
Harley uses a grapple hook to get around, while King Shark runs fast up the side of buildings. Boomerang is the fastest, and can warp and use speed abilities to get around. Finally, Deadshot uses a jetpack to traverse the open world.
