The Joker and Harley Quinn are coming to PUBG

PUBG Corp and DC have teamed up to cram The Joker and Harley Quinn into PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, at least as skins. This version of the deranged duo is from the fascinatingly awful Suicide Squad.

So far, PUBG Corp has only announced the pair of skins, which you can see in action in the trailer. The Joker skin is, much like its cinematic counterpart, an acquired taste. Harley also has her trademark baseball bat, however, suggesting that new weapons or weapon skins are also coming.

The collaboration obviously invites comparisons with Fortnite’s Avengers crossover. It introduced a temporary game mode that let players become nasty Thanos, the Mad Titan, and cause a bit of havoc. This one isn't nearly as timely, however, since Suicide Squad came out in 2016, but it perhaps makes more sense than a Justice League crossover. While Suicide Squad was not well received, it was at least considered a box office success, unlike Justice League.

The Joker and Harley will be appearing “soon”, and with winter fast approaching, we’ll hopefully be able to take the skins for a spin on PUBG’s upcoming snow map. Speaking of which, here’s what we know so far about Dihor Otok.

Fraser Brown

Fraser is the UK online editor and has actually met The Internet in person. With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
