Task Force X is here. Warner Bros Games

For those who have the Deluxe Edition of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, they can now enjoy this new open-world action-shooter from Warner Bros. Games and DC. The game offers improved traversal mechanics combined with fast-paced and action-packed combat which can be enjoyed solo or with up to four players through online cooperative mode. It's available for the PC via Steam and consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Those who purchased the Standard Edition meanwhile need to wait a bit longer since the worldwide launch is on February 2.

Deluxe vs Standard

The Deluxe Edition is priced at $99.99 and comes with early access to the game. It also comes with extra content that includes:

  • four Classic Outfits
  • four Justice League Outfits
  • three Black Mask notorious weapons
  • four Squad Golds weapon dolls
  • four No Shade Outfit color swatches
  • one token for a post-launch, cosmetics only battle pass.

The Standard Edition is priced at $69.99 and comes out in a few days. What this means is that there's still a bit of time left to pre-order this edition and get four Classic Outfits as bonus content. In addition, those who pre-order for the digital version of the PS5 can get four Rogue Outfits.

The game offers an original narrative that's set in the DC Universe, particularly in Metropolis. The story picks up five years after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. This time, players can take on the role of DC Super-Villains that include Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark.

As part of Task Force X created by Amanda Waller, the villains have no choice but to work together since they have lethal explosives implanted in their heads. However, it's turning out to be an impossible mission as they're asked to take on none other than the Justice League, who have been corrupted by Brainiac. To succeed in their mission, they'll need to get the help of allies that include the likes of Rick Flag, Poison Ivy, Penguin, and even Lex Luthor, to name a few.

Not a Good Start

While there was indeed hype in the game coming out, it had what can be described as a rather "awful" start. According to different reports, just an hour into the release, developer Rocksteady Studios had no choice but to take the game offline. What was the issue you ask? In a post on X, the studio revealed that players were experiencing an issue wherein when they logged into the game for the first time, "they have full story completion."

While the issue was limited to New Zealand, it didn't prevent other players, especially those on Xbox, checking it out by altering their system. The studio has been working on a fix and hopefully everything is ready by the February 2 launch.
