In a twist of fate, the highly anticipated Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League game has hit a slight snag during its early-access launch. Reports have surfaced of a pesky bug that automatically completes the entire game, leaving players bewildered and developers scratching their heads. It's like ordering a gourmet meal and having it served to you in a blink of an eye—talk about fast food gaming!
According to sources like Video Games Chronicle and the game's official X (formerly Twitter) account, developer Rocksteady made the executive decision to pull the plug on the always-online Suicide Squad extravaganza after a mere hour of being live. While the game's official release date is still a few days away on Feb. 2, those who splurged on the $99.99 Deluxe Edition were promised a glorious 72 hours of early access. However, much to their surprise, Deluxe Edition owners discovered that their epic main story campaign had already been completed as soon as they logged in for the first time.
"We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion," confessed the official Suicide Squad game X account. "To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers. During this time the game will be unavailable. We expect this to take several hours and will update once we have more information. We apologize for the inconvenience."
Now, we can only imagine the mix of emotions Deluxe Edition owners must be going through right now. It's like ordering a fancy steak dinner, only to have it served to you in a pre-digested form. How delightful! And let's not forget the other perks that come with the Digital Deluxe Edition, such as Justice League outfits and a Battle Pass token. It's a real bummer to feel like you've lost the value of your $100 purchase. Let's hope the developers can fix this issue pronto and restore the excitement of early access.
As for how long Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will remain offline, we're in the dark (no pun intended). Unlike Baldur's Gate 3 on Xbox, there are no holidays to blame for potential delays in patching out this auto-completion bug. So, the clock is ticking, developers! Deluxe Edition owners are eagerly waiting to dive back into the game and experience the thrill of taking down the Justice League in all its glory.
This latest hiccup is just another setback for the polarizing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League video game. It seems the journey to villainous greatness has been a rocky road for this live-service game. Its initial reveal during PlayStation State of Play in 2023 failed to make waves, and a major delay followed. Critics and fans alike have voiced concerns about the game's execution of the live-service format. It's like trying to blend peanut butter and pickles—it might work for some, but for others, it's just a bizarre combination that leaves a sour taste in their mouths.
Marvel's Avengers, released in 2020, also leaned heavily on the live-service gameplay model and faced its fair share of criticism and commercial struggles. The result? Delisting on Sept. 30, 2023. Early previews of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League from major gaming outlets have been a mixed bag, ranging from mediocre to downright disappointing. But hey, let's not judge a game solely by its early impressions. After all, diamonds in the rough do exist in the gaming universe.
So, let's cross our fingers and hope that Rocksteady quickly resolves the completion bug and gets Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League back on track. Deluxe Edition owners deserve the full experience they paid for, and the game itself deserves a fair chance to shine. Until then, let's sit tight and patiently wait for the game servers to come back online, ready to unleash our villainous potential upon the unsuspecting Justice League.
