Rocksteady developers are behind what’s coming Suicide Squad: Kill Justice LeagueThe DC villain-themed open-world co-op looter shooter has revealed some new details and thinking behind the game’s battle pass, seasons, and end-game content. Even though it’s a live service game that will likely have its own issues at launch, I’m optimistic about it based on these recent responses, which sounds good at least on paper.
Appeared for the first time I’m back in 2020, Suicide Squad next game from Rocksteady, the developers behind the previous game Batman: Arkham games. Even though this new shooter is set in the same universe, fans haven’t been too excited about the game since its reveal. Every time we see more…via trailers or leaks—very similar to a live service shooter game, Even if Rocksteady doesn’t want to admit it. Mixed previews It didn’t help win people over earlier this month either. But in a recent Discord Q&A, the developers revealed their plans. Suicide Squad‘s endgame and seasons show that this game is completely playable alone and won’t have you grinding for weeks to play limited-time content.
Officially on January 26 Suicide Squad On the Discord server, the developers hosted a second Q&A after the previous one was so well received. This time around, most of the selected community questions and developer responses seemed focused on convincing people that this game won’t require you to treat it like a second job.
“We all love playing games, but we have lives too,” said Game Director Axel Rydby. Suicide Squad.
“That was a big part of our design philosophy when making this game. We don’t want the game to feel like a life commitment, or a game where you have to sacrifice too much to see all the content on offer, or feel like you’re not making good progress through the game if you can’t play it. I play for hundreds of hours,” Rybdy explained.
A good example of this is that seasonal battle passes (as Rocksteady has repeatedly reminded people on Discord) only include cosmetics, and all the content added to the game with each new season can be done at any time. Battle pass-specific outfits, new locations, missions and The game’s first new playable character, The JokerHe won’t quit the game after the season is over. According to Rocksteady, you can always go back and progress through the previous season’s battle pass, or even purchase the premium version long after its release.
“We believe our team has created some of the best-looking cosmetics ever,” added Rocksteady studio director Darius Sadeghian. “We want these to be available for our players to enjoy without fear that they will miss anything.”
As someone who plays a lot FortniteA game built around battle pass FOMO and limited-time items in its ever-changing store sounds great.
You can play them all Suicide Squad solo
Another example of how Rocksteady claims the game will respect your time and not require you to spend every day playing it is that every mission and activity in the game can be completed on your own, even the most challenging end-game content. Rydby noted that this was part of the studio’s philosophy when developing the co-op game.
“We want this game to be generous with both your time and all the features we offer,” Rybdy said.
Additionally, Rocksteady confirmed in today’s Discord Q&A that you’ll be able to go back and replay all missions from the game’s story. And if you play with friends and beat your current point in your own game, the developers say you’ll be able to skip those levels when you return to your solo world. Another example of the team trying to respect the players’ time, I appreciate that.
Of course, just because a game has great endgame and season crossover plans doesn’t mean it’ll be good. If Suicide Squad‘s combat is bad, its traversal gameplay is clunky, and/or its narrative is boring; It doesn’t matter how nice the season’s cosmetics are or how generous the battle pass is; people will stop playing.
Because we don’t have to wait long to see if the game will be fun enough to make time for future seasons, characters, or more. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League It will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC on February 2, 2024. ransom fee generated by the publisher and if you pre-order the deluxe edition you can play three days earlier.
