15 Minutes Of The Pathetically Always Online Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League [VIDEO]

It’s not enough that Rocksteady’s new game (the studio, popularized by the Batman: Arkham games) has a live service model; there’s a good chance that publisher Warner forced it into a game that feels lifeless as WB Games Montréal’s Gotham Knights.


Tucked into the game’s Q&A is “Yes, an internet connection is required to play Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League solo or via online co-op.” The need for it in cooperative play is understandable because the four players are not in the exact location. However, if you’re playing solo, you have to be constantly online (beyond Denuvo, which will again crush the PC version’s performance), which was Warner’s move to ensure no warez version of the game could preserve it for future generations. No comment.

Here’s Warner’s overview of the two videos: “The video shows off a new look at the game’s high-intensity combat set against the vast, explorable open world of Metropolis, which is teeming with Brainiac’s hostile forces. Enjoyed as a solo or four-player online cooperative experience, the gameplay reveal provides an in-depth look at the multiplayer mayhem that can ensue, with each Squad member’s unique traversal abilities and attacks on full display. Whether players gravitate towards Harley Quinn’s wild acrobatics, King Shark’s powerful leaping, Deadshot’s aerial sharpshooting, or Captain Boomerang’s lightning-fast speed force, each character delivers special skills specific to their brand of chaos.

Furthermore, a behind-the-scenes featurette was released today with members of the Rocksteady Studios team expanding on the world of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and going deeper on core game elements and characters, along with commentary on the process of taking the Squad out of Arkham Asylum and into the dynamic city of tomorrow that is Metropolis. Additionally, the video touches on the studio’s plans for new content after launch. On top of the massive story-driven campaign, vibrant open-world, and action–adventure shooter experience, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will have post-launch content updates to expand the story with new missions and earnable characters, available at no cost. The game will also have a cosmetics-only battle pass system to earn new outfits, emotes, and other items to uniquely customize Squad members.” So they are following the boring and pathetic modern trends with microtransactions and delaying content for later.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be released on May 26 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC (Steam).
