Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Devs Don’t Consider The Game ‘Live Service’

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League developer Rocksteady says it doesn’t consider the upcoming game a live service title. Previews from select media outlets appeared online yesterday and most of them had mixed feelings, mainly concerns surrounding the game’s gear system and how those elements might delve deep into live service territory. However, Rocksteady has assured fans that this isn’t the case.

Speaking in the latest issue of Play Magazine, Rocksteady’s studio product director, Darius Sadeghian, spoke about not being able to give Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League “any particular label.” While most onlookers believe the game shows clear signs of live service or ‘games as a service’ (GaaS) elements, Rocksteady says it’s trying to avoid putting the game into one bracket.

Sadeghian said in the interview:

“We don’t really think of our game as fitting with any particular label. It’s still full of the DNA that infuses the Batman: Arkham series – those foundations of story and character are absolutely central to our process…story-wise, this is easily our biggest game, but we’re also really keen on being there for players who want to stay with us and continue the adventure. It’s really important to us that we’re generous with the people who play our game, so for the first year after launch, we’ve got masses of new content that will be completely free for people who own the game.”

Reading between the lines, it seems like Rocksteady has plans to support Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League with constant updates and new content, though it’s unclear if this will be free or take the form of some kind of battle pass yet.

Last November, Rocksteady delivered a lengthy 20-minute gameplay deep dive that gave us a closer look at the four playable antiheroes (Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang and King Shark) and what they’ll be doing around the massive city of Metropolis, which has come under Brainiac’s control.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League launches on 2 February 2024 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
