Brainiac attacks Metropolis and his rampaging minions are spreading chaos and destruction everywhere. Task Force X is sent to take matters into hand and bring current situation under control but they decided to sit around and chill.

Waller calls again and orders them to engage "Alpha Target" or threatens to blow implanted bombs in their heads, sending all four of them into clear out some nearby areas by taking down minions of Brainiac, while working as a team.

They all regroup soon and a chopper gets blown off right behind them, revealing a hovering Superman. As they all watch in horror, Man of Steel blasts off its pilot into atoms and they realize whom they were really after all along.

Warner Bros. classifies new Suicide Squad game to be an action-adventure shooter featuring up to four player co-op gameplay. You will be joined by AI-controlled teammates during single-player adventure and switch between them.

Back in 2018, Rocksteady was rumoredly working on a Superman game and a job listing for their next project followed. Then a leaked report hinted at a possible Justice League game being in development but none of these panned out.

Due to widespread audience recognition from 2016 Suicide Squad movie, inclusion of Deadshot and Harley Quinn was predictable. Auzzie super-villain Captain Boomerang and King Shark are also joining from upcoming live-action sequel.

Harley wields a baseball bat as her common weapon of choice and Deadshot apparently has a jetpack now. Boomerang appears to be just as fast as his arch-nemesis The Flash and King Shark is mowing down enemies with a machine gun.

Each character will have their distinct move-sets and traversal abilities to explore an open-world of Metropolis. Former super-villains of "Arkhamverse" are now armed with customizable weapons and have unique skill-trees to develop.

There were speculations of whether a shared image of Superman earlier by Rocksteady is truly everyone's favorite Man of Steel or his evil counterpart Bizarro and recent trailer confirms that he is only acting evil under influence of Brainiac.

Suicide Squad game will pit former villains against mind-controlled members of Justice League. A brief glimpse at gameplay hints that Rocksteady has moved from Batman: Arkham series formula and leaned more into Sunset Overdrive.
