Over the past few months, Rocksteady has been slowly giving fans more details about Suicide Squad’s plot and gameplay, which will see players take control of a fiendish quartet of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang as they run, jump, and shoot their way through Superman’s home city of Metropolis amid an alien invasion. Rocksteady’s past superhero titles have been praised for their immersive atmospheres, such as Batman: Arkham Asylum’s nightmarish psychiatric facility and Batman: Arkham City’s crime-ridden, open-world prison city.
In keeping with this, the PS5 has a few features that can help immerse players in the battle against the brainwashed Justice League in the upcoming Suicide Squad game. These features were shown in a recent video posted on the official Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League YouTube channel, consisting of previously shown clips of Task Force X in action. The PS5 DualSense controller’s Haptic Feedback vibration boosts the rumble of explosions, while the Adaptive Triggers allow players to feel the weight of Deadshot’s triggers or Captain Boomerang’s boomerang throws. Lastly, 3D Audio from the PS5’s Pulse Wireless headphones puts players in the heart of Metropolis through enhanced sound.

Reactions to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League have been mixed since its original announcement, with some players anxious to jump back into the Arkhamverse while others are more skeptical. This division would only grow after Rocksteady revealed that Suicide Squad will feature an RPG-like gear system and initially require players to remain online even while playing solo, though a recent closed alpha test of the game was met with a warmer response back in November.
Only time will tell if Suicide Squad can overcome the odds and provide gamers with another memorable DC-based video game, but Rocksteady is certainly looking to make its world more immersive than ever before with help from the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and Pulse 3D audio headset. Thanks to Haptic Feedback, Adaptive controller triggers, and other notable PS5 features, players will be able to feel and hear the battle for Metropolis up close and personal when Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches on February 2.
