Rocksteady, the studio that built the infamous Arkham Asylum titles from Wayne Manor leftovers or simply the best superhero games ever made, takes a left turn into chaotic co-op mayhem and we can’t get more excited about it.
Coming February 2nd, step into the neon-splattered boots of Harley, Deadshot, Boomerang, and King Shark as they tackle a mission as audacious as their outfits: taking down not the everyday average supervillain but a mind-controlled Justice League.
Based on the Arkhamverse universe, the game’s premise features Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark taking on Brainiac, who has taken over the Metropolis and the Justice League, and it is up to the bad guys to rise to the occasion and save the planet with some help from Wonder Woman.
Announced in 2010 and in development since 2012, the game is one of the most awaited games of the last two decades. Finally, get ready for explosive headshots, twisted humor, and the ultimate question: who throws a boomerang harder, Captain Boomerang on steroids or a mind-controlled Superman?
Have you ever dreamt of ditching the Rebellion and carving your own legend in the Star Wars underworld?
Never? Well, don’t worry. Now you can carve your own myth through the first-ever open-world Star Wars game. With an original story and a mouth-watering allure of exploring the galaxies, Star Wars: Outlaws is not just a treat for Star Wars fans.
Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the game lets you play as Kay Vess – an outlaw who trying to make sense of her new realities and start a new life along with her partner of crime Nix. It would be something like Red Dead Redemption 2 overdosed on Han Solo. But instead of the wild west, you will have the whole galaxy at your feet. So, expect blaster shootouts like a Mos Eisley bar brawl, daring heists like a Kessel Run, and moral choices that make even Jabba the Hutt wince twice.
This year. Go outrageous. Grab a blaster and a jetpack to become the galaxy’s most charming scoundrel.
