Since the moment it was announced, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been pushed by Rocksteady and WB Games as a co-op focused title, and though it’s been confirmed that the entire game will be playable solo, there have been increasing concerns surrounding what kind of an experience it will be, and whether it will fall into the same traps as the likes of Marvel’s Avengers and Gotham Knights, both of which are superhero titles that have gone with a similar approach.
While final judgment will obviously have to be reserved until people have had time to play and digest the game itself, a new leak has emerged that might not necessary fill you with confidence, if you’re skeptical about the game.
A new image from the game was recently posted on the 4chan message boards (via MP1st), showing the in-game menu screen- and there’s a lot of stuff in here that gives the impression that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be a monetization-heavy service title. Chief among them is the “Battle Pass” tab in the menu itself, which should come as a surprise to some- there had been no previous indications until this point that Suicide Squad would have a Battle Pass.
Meanwhile, the menu also has a “store” tab, pointing to in-game purchases (that, at least, isn’t all that surprising), a tab for “Socials”, and an option for something called the “Message of the Day”, which could possibly be tied to daily challenges, or something along those lines. Multiple in-game currencies are also displayed on top of the character screen.
Interestingly, the character screen also seems to confirm that the game will feature support for cross-play. The four playable characters are showcased on the screen, with Captain Boomerang having the PlayStation symbol next to him, unlike the other three.
VGC has corroborate the validity of this leaked image in its own report. The site claims the screenshot originates from a recent test build of the game. The currencies shown on the character screen are XP specific to each of the four playable characters, used to upgrade and customize their skill trees. The report also claims the battle pass will be focused on cosmetic items like character skins.
It was recently confirmed that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will launch on May 26, so hopefully, we’ll have more concrete details on it in the not-so-distant future. The game will launch for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
