The developers started talking with Warner Bros. last summer, and they expected to bring a surprise collaboration after The Walking Dead linkage ends.

This spring, they finalized the collaboration with WB and DC – as expected, The Joker will take over from The Walking Dead in November. After nearly a year of preparation, the devs have worked with WB and DC to bring a unique and exclusive SoS Joker.

Due to the agreement with WB and DC, they needed to keep the surprise for the players until the last moment, even though they had already confirmed the collaboration – so in mid-November, they finally announced the news of this collaboration to all players.

This time they have customized the event with a very deep plot and more interesting gameplay, with Joker at the helm.

Joker abilities

Joker is a homicidal artist and an agent of chaos. No name strikes terror into the hearts of Gotham’s citizens quite like the Joker. In a city overrun with larger-than-life criminals, the always-laughing villain stands alone. He is a complete psychopath with no moral compass whatsoever. His real name and identity also remain completely unknown. Joker is characterized by his chalk-white skin, green hair, and a permanent rictus grin stretched across his face. But there isn’t a single thing funny about this particular clown, who only finds humor in the suffering of others.

The Joker’s psychosis causes his personality to shift between goofy prankster and mass murderer on a dime, making it impossible to predict his next move. It’s this unpredictability that makes him such a dangerous opponent.
