Modern Multiplayer Features in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
In spite of being set in the Batman: Arkham Knight universe, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is packed with contemporary multiplayer features, boondoggles, and challenges. The game's announcement was accompanied by a press release, which seemed like a rundown of all the ways major game publishers are trying to recover their investment in big-budget games without hiking their prices.
For instance, although the game is set to launch on February 2, those who purchase the $100 Deluxe Edition will be granted access three days prior. This premium version will also include a token for a premium battle pass, alongside some bonus items and outfits. However, Rocksteady assures that players purchasing the regular version will also receive post-launch content at no extra cost.
Post-Launch Plans and Earning Characters
Rocksteady Studios has outlined plans for post-launch seasonal updates and earnable characters to expand the story with new missions, items, and more - all at no extra cost. This includes access to all free seasonal battle pass tiers as they become available. The always-online game aims to avoid locking players out of new story content and missions, but may charge for certain special seasonal rewards.
While additional characters may be 'free', they might require extensive in-game grinding to unlock. The final game will reveal the extent of this feature.
Learning from Past Mistakes
It's hoped that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will strike the right balance, learning from games like Marvel's Avengers. Following a backlash from fans over gear scores and other signs of live-service padding and monetization, the game took a hiatus and was delayed for almost a year to add more polish. It would be a pleasant surprise if these elements felt mostly separate and easy to ignore in the final game. Time will tell.
