LEGO Batman 3 Beyond Gotham Suicide Squad Themed DLC Pack Out Early Next Year; Play As Your Favorite Villains Before The New Movie
In a canny bit of corporate synergy, WB Games has announced the release of The Squad DLC pack for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. The announcement comes less than a day after the full cast was revealed for the upcoming David Ayer directed Suicide Squad movie.
The Squad DLC pack will be released for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC versions of the DC Comics adventure game. The Suicide Squad is a team of villains sent on the hard to impossible missions, the underlying theory that since they’re such bad guys, no one will miss them. The Squad’s roster is a revolving door, but generally consists of The Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang among others.
Obviously, this is a kid’s game so the word ‘Suicide’ will be nowhere near the title.
The new DLC will have players take control of several members of the Squad as they attempt to stop a mysterious threat that has invaded Belle Reve Penitentiary, the Suicide Squad’s homebase before all of their secrets are revealed. And considering they’re running around the world with little official government oversight, word of a villainous team galavanting to and fro would be particularly bad for business.
The Squad joins Batman 75, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight and Arrow as upcoming DLC packs for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. The massive adventure game is out now for nearly every major system. Players can purchase a season pass for $14.99. The Squad pack will be out in early 2015.
