Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League had early images have leaked onlinerevealing a Battle Pass and other live service features.
This image was first posted on 4Chan but has since been verified as genuine by VGC and is from a recent test build of the game. Not only is a Battle Pass tab visible on leaked screenshots, but also in-game currency and an in-game store.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, an online co-op open-world action-adventure game, had not previously announced live service features in an official capacity. In fact, up to this point we had only seen glimpses of gameplay and in-game cinematics via a variety of trailers released ahead of the game’s launch on May 23rd later this year.
Alongside these leaks, some story details have also been released by those claiming to have knowledge of the game’s overarching plot. However, this was apparently shot down by Del Walker, a former Rocksteady artist, who claimed on Twitter that the developers were “laughing” at the leaked story details.
The online response to these leaked images appears to have been largely negative. Twitter user Fenix64_ was one of those users, and succinctly summed up his thoughts with, “Not another game with a boof-ass battle pass,” while others just took to share a variety of Gifs and memes expressing their disappointment.
Additional information has come Andy Robinson, owner and publisher of VGCwho posted online that the Battle Pass is for cosmetics, currencies are for playable characters as XP, and that the “characters don’t start out debuffed and weak,” according to his source.
Having said that, it’s by no means the ideal way to show this aspect of the game to the public, but you must be wondering why even include a Battle Pass in a full price game like Suicide Squad? This isn’t the first game in recent memory to include a Battle Pass for little if any reason.
But what do you think? Let us know below and if you think games that are separate from the free-to-play multiplayer genres should include battle passes!
