The clown prince of crime and his sometimes more-popular significant other are apparently coming to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in the form of DLC skins. The announcement came from the official Twitter account today and was accompanied by a short trailer showing the characters off.
“Ok, honey. It’s me and you.”
Live on and play as two of your favorite Suicide Squad heroes, the Joker and Harley Quinn. Coming soon. pic.twitter.com/NWZhXaPBMz

Like the tweet says, these are the Suicide Squad incarnations of the characters, referencing the 2016 DC superhero film produced by Warner Bros. So if you’re hoping for the red-and-black Harley costume with the jester’s hat, you’ll have to keep crossing your fingers.
Also, yes, in case you need to know before watching the video: Joker does indeed have “Damaged” tattooed on his forehead.
This is a bit of an odd licensing deal with PUBG, though not new for battle royale games in general. It was not that long ago that Fortnite had a limited-time event featuring Thanos from Marvel comics and, most recently, Avengers: Infinity War, allowing players to turn into the purple mad god. Presumably, Joker and Harley will not be time-limited, but we’ll find out full details soon.
In other PUBG news, it appears that the game might soon become available on PlayStation 4, as well.
