Now is a good time to be a part of Task Force X. Or to be conscripted into the secret government black ops group and have a micro-explosive implanted in your spine that forces your compliance as you take on missions that will most likely see you dead. Yes that. You’ve seen them in Arrow, the Justice League cartoon and their own animated film. Now prepare to play as the Suicide Squad. Albeit the Lego version of that gang.
With a proper feature film on the way, expect the Suicide Squad to be more pimped out than a Cadillac covered in purple fur from Counts Customs. Warner Bros has announced that Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will receive some DLC, although their lawyers have advised me to refer to the Suicide Squad as merely the Squad.
Clearly, somebody is thinking about the children.
Containing dozens of characters already, Lego Batman 3 will see regular squaddies Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, Deathstroke and other members take the spotlight. There’s no mention of the riskier elements of the Suicide Squad being present here, so fun for the whole family I reckon.
Of course to get that content early next year, you’ll need to shell out $15 for the season pass or $3 for the standalone content. Yes, it’s pricy. But it sure as hell isn’t as pricy as actual Lego these days. I mean, I’d love to buy that Star Wars set, but I’m not paying first-world prices for them. I kinda dug Lego Batman 3. Even though it doesn’t change the formula of Lego games in way whatsoever, it was still remarkeably fun and dedicated to its source material. And still cheaper than actual Lego.
Holy crap, I cannot stress this enough. Seriously Lego, stop jacking your prices up. I want to build a Star Destroyer already!
