The Suicide Squad game teaser by Rocksteady is still surrounded by mystery until the reveal on August 22nd. But a Reddit leaker that goes by the name of ‘ssgameleaks’ claimed to have some legit information regarding the game. Although the original post has been deleted by the subreddit admin, through Removeddit archive we can take a peek on what they were talking about. Of course, as is the case with all anonymous leaks, there’s no way to prove their claims. So take the info with a truckload of salt.
Now with that warning out of the way, let’s read on how the Suicide Squad game will play. According to the Reddit leak, Suicide Squad is going to be a PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC title with a planned release date in late 2021 or early 2022. It will be a fast-paced action-focused game with customization options not unlike Square Enix’s Avengers.
In the story mode, Amanda Waller and Lex Luthor are attempting to create Doomsday through Project CADMUS in order to eliminate the Justice League. Waller then plans to capture the Justice League by sending in Suicide Squad and bring them back alive in order “to await their doomsday.” The leaker claimed that this game is going to take place in the same universe as the Batman Arkham series.
Even if Rocksteady is planning to give a heavy focus on the story mode, they are still adding an asymmetric PVP online mode. The gameplay seems to be if Dead by Deadlight is having a baby with Arkham Origin’s multiplayer. One team plays as a member of the Justice League, the other plays as a team of Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad game playable characters will include but not limited to:
- Harley Quinn. Equipped with fast-moving bat and powerful hammer for melee or dual pistols and a submachine gun for ranged attacks.
- Deadshot. All-ranged character. You can use his wrist-mounted guns and an assault rifle.
- Deathstroke. Plays like Batman in the Arkham games. He has pistols, a staff, a grapple gun, and a sword that can be used as a finisher.
- King Shark.
- Count Vertigo. Can use vertigo abilities to stun enemies.
- and Enchantress. Can clone herself, use energy projection, teleportation, and possess enemies.
Meanwhile, Justice League roster consists of:
- Wonder Woman.
- Green Lantern.
- Martian Manhunter.
- and Hawkgirl.
Although the leaker did not specify how the Justice League will work in the Suicide Squad game’s multiplayer mode, they said that they managed to get their hands on two boss fights against Batman and Wonder Woman. Batman is similar to how he plays in the Arkham series, mainly using gadgets and there’s a moment where it’s like a predator section from the Arkham games “but you’re the prey and Batman is the predator.” Wonder Woman can use her lasso to pull you in and then deals damage with her sword. While she’s able to block standard attacks with her shield, you can do a combo attack to break her defense.
And that’s all they have to say regarding leaking some pieces of information on the Suicide Squad game. Does this leak sound plausible? Tell us what you think in the comments.
