Ah, the excitement of diving into a new game before everyone else. The thrill of exploring uncharted virtual worlds, battling formidable foes, and uncovering thrilling stories. But sometimes, fate has other plans. Developer Rocksteady Studios found themselves in a bit of a pickle when Early Access players of their highly anticipated live-service multiplayer shooter, Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, encountered a pesky bug that halted their progress. And so, in a dramatic turn of events, the game was taken offline, leaving players in dismay.
Now, let's set the stage for this unfolding drama. The standard edition of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is scheduled to launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC this Friday, February 2. But for those eager souls willing to shell out a few extra bucks, the Deluxe Edition offered a tantalizing opportunity to jump in three days early. A tempting offer indeed, especially for those residing in distant lands like New Zealand, where the Early Access period had already begun.
However, as the saying goes, "With great anticipation comes great bugs." Players logging into the game for the first time found themselves facing an unexpected twist. They were greeted with a peculiar predicament: full story completion without lifting a finger. A rather convenient turn of events, one might say, but not exactly what they were hoping for. Thus, Rocksteady Studios swiftly took action, announcing that game servers would undergo maintenance to resolve the issue. Alas, during this time, the game would be inaccessible, leaving players twiddling their thumbs and cursing the digital gods.
Now, let's take a moment to empathize with these dedicated gamers. Picture their excitement as they eagerly fired up the game, controllers at the ready, only to be greeted with an unintended triumph. The thrill of embarking on an epic adventure shattered in an instant. It's a mega bummer, my friends, especially for those who forked over an extra $30 for the privilege of playing early. We can only hope that Rocksteady and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive find a way to compensate these unfortunate souls for their interrupted gaming dreams.
But fear not, fellow gamers, for there is light at the end of this digital tunnel. Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Deluxe Edition preorders are still on track to go live on January 30, granting access to the game on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. And for the rest of us mere mortals, the game will finally be unleashed upon the world on February 2. The wait may be agonizing, but trust me, it will be worth it.
In the meantime, let's distract ourselves with more Suicide Squad goodness. Feast your eyes upon the latest trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, and then indulge in Game Informer's thoughts on the game after their hands-on experience. And if that's not enough to satiate your appetite, get a sneak peek at the mischievous Joker, who will be playable in Season 1 this March. The excitement never ends!
