The wait for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been long and torturous, made even more so by the fact that Rocksteady has said little to nothing about the game even since its announcement. That will soon be changing, of course, with the game set to showcase an extended gameplay demonstration at today’s State of Play presentation. Ahead of that, however, some brief details have also emerged courtesy of an age rating by Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).
Unsurprisingly, the classification recommends an 18+ rating for the game, while also revealing some details on the game’s open world and how it will be structured- which should be familiar to you if you frequently play open world titles. As per a description of the game provided alongside the rating, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s Metropolis will be divided into several areas, and each area will have its own boss that players will have to beat to make progress in the story. Presumably, these bosses will be members of the titular Justice League.
You can find the full description provided in the classification rating below:
“From a third person perspective, the player controls a member of the Suicide Squad to fight various enemies (mainly robots and aliens) in different areas of the city. In each area, the player will have to face off a boss in order to progress the story. There are also side objectives which involve rescuing trapped civilians and collecting items to upgrade their equipment.
“Some of the areas in the city are strewn with corpses, some of which have missing limbs. These corpses cannot be interacted with. Splatters of purple fluid are frequently seen when enemies receive damage. Blood briefly stains the edges of the screen when the player character receives damage. The story scenes contain some depictions of violence which are tinged with dark humour, such as scenes implying a character’s finger being severed and subsequent jokes made about the severed finger. Other scenes contain stronger depictions, such as a character with a blade impaled in the neck, another’s heart being ripped out, and a man being decapitated with blood spurting out of the neck stump. Overall, these depictions would be more appropriate under a M18 rating where the Classification Guidelines allow depictions of realistic violence, such as killing, maiming or causing other serious injury to humanoid characters.”
