Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a new superhero game from Rocksteady Studios that was developed under the games as a service (GaaS) model. This is according to a single and reportedly legitimate screenshot for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League that has leaked online, revealing not only the game’s menu design, but also the inclusion of a Battle Pass, hinting at a tier system for monetization purposes. Sources with VGC have claimed that it will only be focused on cosmetic items (e.g., skins), however.
From a VGC report:
The battle pass and multiple currencies shown in the image have inspired debate on social media about how extensive the live service elements will be for the title. However, a development source told VGC that while a battle pass is planned for the game, it will be focused on cosmetic items such as skins. In addition, the various currencies shown at the top of the leaked image are understood to be XP used to power up and customise the skill trees of each antihero, effectively making them unique to the player.
“You don’t start off debuffed and weak,” VGC was told. “You just start off great and can get ridiculous, like Arkham Knight’s Batman.”
Rocksteady Studios is the developer best known for the majority of the Batman: Arkham games, which include Arkham Asylum (2009), Arkham City (2011), and Arkham Knight (2013), a finale that introduced a drivable Batmobile and pit Batman against some of his best-known foes, including Scarecrow. While Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League (May 26, 2023) will center around DC’s anti-hero team, Batman will appear in the game, according to a reveal trailer that Rocksteady shared in December.
