Warner Bros. Games and DC with developer Rocksteady Studios have set up a staggered release for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The open-world action-shooter is available now if you purchase the Deluxe Edition ($99), as part of the head start. Everyone else with the standard version ($69) can start playing February 2nd.

The Deluxe Edition also includes in-game outfits, weapons, and a token for one battle pass.

Kill the Justice League flips the tables on the superhero story by starring anti-heroes who are more likely to be villains, in a world where the DC heroes such as Superman and Wonder Woman have been corrupted by invading alien Brainiac.

The story picks up five years after Batman: Arkham Knight, and stars four members of Task Force X, aka the Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. Their job is to take down the formidable fallen heroes.

Each member has their own playstyle, moveset, and traversal abilities. King Shark is a bruiser who can leap tall buildings with a single bound, while Deadshot can employ his jetpack, wrist cannons, and sniper rifle.

“With the launch of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, we are excited to take players on an adventure unlike anything we have ever played or made before at Rocksteady,” said Darius Sadeghian, Studio Director, Rocksteady Studios. “I’m so proud of what we’ve created together: our original story set in the DC Universe, the vibrant open-world of Metropolis, the unique combination of gameplay elements, and our amazing cast of villains – Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. We are thrilled to have a direct connection with players, which will allow us to continually update the game and keep playing with our community.”

Kill the Justice League will be supported post-launch by seasonal content, adding new playable characters, missions, events, and gear.

The first season will begin in March, and add The Joker.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is available now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S (Deluxe Edition) or on Feb 2 (Standard). It’s rated M for Mature.
