Joker, the infamous clown prince of chaos, is confirmed to not only appear in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. But he will also be a playable character.

Announced in the third and final developer diary series for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Rocksteady Studios revealed the post-launch content plans for its upcoming game ahead of its release date. The studio detailed the roadmap for the first season of DLC, which will be released sometime in March.

Some additional content in season one includes new boss fights and enemy variants, a new playable environment based on Joker, and two new episodes with new activities, missions, and strongholds to partake in.

Three additional seasons of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League are planned, according to Rocksteady. Each season will introduce a new playable character and one new playable environment, among other things such as new weapons and activities.

The marquee of season one is that Joker will be a new playable character. Fans of Rocksteady's Arkhamverse games are probably mystified at the idea, given the upcoming game is set five years after Batman: Arkham Knight and the Joker from that trilogy is dead. However, this is different from the Joker we have seen in those games; rather, this Joker was pulled from another dimension based on the Elseworld comics.

"The original Arkhamverse Joker has been dead for five years, but this is a new Elseworlds twist on the villain," Rocksteady studio director Darius Sadeghian said in the developer diary. While Rocksteady Associate Design Director Johnny Armstrong revealed that this Joker "was part of the Suicide Squad in the Elseworld that he's from, which already shows that he's slightly more cooperative than the previous Joker we've had" before teasing that this Joker is "unhinged in a different way."

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is out on February 2 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. For more, check out our hands-on preview.
