The renowned developer behind the Batman Arkham games has been working on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League for seven years.
As a live service game, this superhero adventure will offer multiple playable characters, a map larger than Batman Arkham Knight, and fresh content throughout its lifespan.
An Alpha build of the game is currently in testing. Players were recently invited to test the game and share feedback from this build. Following the test, several minutes of new gameplay footage has been leaked.
Why it matters: This is the most extensive look at Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League yet, showing uncut gameplay for a better look than recent trailers.
These leaks have been shared on Reddit. While some videos have made their way to platforms like YouTube, Warner Bros is currently removing them. Still, Reddit users have preserved the gameplay through other sites.
The video starts right from the beginning of the game. At first, the familiar Arkham Asylum shows up, with Amanda Waller recruiting members of the squad. Familiar faces like Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and King Shark also show up.
Another video shows a mission featuring members of the Justice League. Green Lantern, The Flash, and Batman are part of this gameplay, showcasing several minutes of familiar third-person shooting.
While the leak does not show much new gameplay, it gives us hope for a promising story. Rocksteady appears to have perfectly captured the chemistry between different members of the Suicide Squad, leading to witty dialogue and funny interactions.
Apart from the gameplay, the leak shows a few emotes with dancing animations that are quite hilarious. These are typical for live service games and will likely be featured in the Battle Pass, which was leaked a few months ago.
We think the combat of Suicide Squad: Kil the Justice League looks somewhat promising despite the disappointing live service premise. The game will be released on 2 February, so this Alpha footage is likely not too far behind the final build.
Still, there is time for Rocksteady to fine-tune the game in the months leading up to release.
