Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League

Just when you thought those pesky villains were gone, Warner Brothers and DC unveiled a new gameplay trailer and content roadmap for Season 1 of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Warner Bros. Games also unveiled a new gameplay trailer showcasing the Season 1 DLC content, which you can check out below.

The Joker Joins the Suicide Squad

In Season 1, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and Killer Shark teleport to another Brainiac-controlled Elseworld to recruit the Joker. Remember, this isn’t the Arkham Joker we know because he (spoiler) died in Arkham City.


This multiversal Joker will be the latest playable character added to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s roster, bringing his own brand of mayhem and chaos to the mix. Additionally, all Season 1 content takes place in an ever-changing Metropolis reimagined in the Joker’s image.

The first season of free post-launch downloadable content (DLC) will be split into two Episodes, with Episode 1: Fear releasing on March 28 and Episode 2: Duality coming later as part of a mid-season update.

Episode 1: Fear adds a new battle pass, shop items, new gear, weapon sets (inspired by Scarecrow, Dr. Poison, and Mad Hatter), incursions, strongholds, and a Green Lantern Brainiac boss fight. The battle pass will feature new emotes, expressions, banners, outfits, and color swatches.

Episode 2: Duality will keep the content flowing with new infused enemy types, more infamy sets, more notorious gear (inspired by Two-Face, Black Manta, and Reverse Flash), changes to Metropolis, and a Superman Brainiac boss fight.

It’ll be interesting to see if WB Games and Rocksteady can lure players back to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League with the Season 1 update. The game infamously flopped on launch, with players criticizing Rocksteady’s departure into the live-service format.

By all means, Season 1 feels like a make-or-break moment for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Either it revamps players’ interest, continuing to chug along with a niche player base, or it winds up like Marvel’s Avengers, with unfulfilled promises and fans wondering what it could’ve been. Hopefully, the Season 1 update is just what the game needs. Check out the gameplay trailer below.

Season 1 of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League begins on March 28 on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5.
