Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League launches at midnight tonight into early access. The only way to play the game before its official launch on 2 February is to splurge on a R1850 copy of the Deluxe Edition. However, users who spent the extra money on the game have been welcomed by offline servers.
Rocksteady was forced to pull the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League servers offline just an hour into the early access launch (in Australia) due to a game-breaking progression bug that saw players instantly finish the game after booting it up.
Rocksteady quickly took the game’s servers offline to prevent more users from facing the issue and in turn, spoiling the game for other gamers. Currently, the servers are still offline which means as new territories get early access, they won’t be able to play the game.
In a tweet, Rocksteady says “We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion.”
At the time of writing, which is over two hours since the servers went offline, they remain down and players can’t log into the game.
Of course, this raises the issue players have had with Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from the start – its always-online features. The online requirement means you can’t play the game if there’s a connection problem, an influx in players or any network outages.
Following the downtime, players have begun to express their frustration. Many of them say that even when the servers were up, they had intermittent connection problems which kept kicking them out of the game. Again, these players have spent R1850 on the game in order to play it early.
We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion.
To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers.
During this time the game will be…
