Though the initial reaction to Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League wasn’t exactly what Rocksteady Studios likely expected, the recent closed-alpha is beginning to turn the ride. The Suicide Squad game brings together the unlikely team of DC villains to thwart Superman villain Brianiac, in the guise of a live-service shooter. However, you won’t need to rely on your internet to get a slice of the actions, thanks to Suicide Squad offline mode.
Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League appears to be making all the right choices ahead of launch, as Rocksteady Studios confirms via the game’s Discord server that “in addition to our latest trailer […] we’re happy to confirm, we are planning to add an offline story mode that will give players the option to experience the main campaign without an internet connection.” As the game’s concept uses a primarily multiplayer setup, speculation before this leaned toward the game relying on a consistent internet connection to keep playing on PS5 and Xbox.
Fortunately, the studio will implement this next year: “we’re aiming to add this update in 2024 and will provide more details when available.” As the Suicide Squad Kill the Justice League release date isn’t far away, we wonder whether this feature will be ready for launch. The game’s main comparative point, the now supportless Marvel’s Avengers, requires players to be connected at all times.
While it isn’t billed as one of the best multiplayer games around, for many, we made a case for keeping the game alive earlier this year. It is a shame as Marvel’s Avengers endgame content throughout locales like Wakanda and the futuristic wastelands can be lots of fun, but as the game’s player base continues to fall off, getting into a match can be a frustrating experience.
Yet, we can rest assured that getting to know all the Suicide Squad characters in the Batman Arkham universe will be a relatively smooth experience, offline or not. Speaking of those characters, many of which you can see in the new trailer from The Game Awards, Rocksteady Studios is also gearing up to give players new villains to play as – completely free.
Yes, free Suicide Squad DLC characters will be coming to the game, and leaks are already revealing that Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke is amid the roster. Kill the Justice League is one of many new PS5 games and new Xbox games to keep on your radar as we enter 2024.
