The new gameplay trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League has done little to reassure fans’ concerns about the upcoming live service game.
Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League is finally about to launch early next month, after being delayed twice from its initial release year of 2022, to ensure the ‘best quality experience for players’.
Fans’ reception to the game has been lukewarm since it was revealed that you need a constant internet connection to play the game, and it was later confirmed that the upcoming Suicide Squad title will be a live service game.
More recent gameplay trailers have been received more positively but the latest one has twice as many dislikes as likes and the comment section is overwhelmingly negative.
The version of the trailer posted on PlayStation’s channel has 1,600 likes and 3,600 dislikes, and Xbox’s post of the trailer, which went live later, has 560 likes and 520 dislikes.
A lot of fans are upset that the trailer doesn’t actually show much gameplay, but the comment sections also suggest that a lot of fans still aren’t convinced that Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will be a worthwhile game.
‘What an absolute shame that WB [Warner Bros.] is forcing live service into this. Judging by the cut scenes it really looks like it had great potential as a single-player campaign,’ says one commentator.
Some fans just want Rocksteady to continue making games like its highly acclaimed Batman: Arkham trilogy, which had a great single-player experience.
‘If only Rocksteady made a Batman Beyond or another Arkham game,’ said one fan.
Some even think Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League will be the end of the developer all together.
‘Rise and fall of Rocksteady. A brilliant studio,’ reads one comment.
‘It’s going to be really sad to see Rocksteady get shut down,’ said another fan.
There’s currently nothing to suggest Rocksteady is in trouble but give the time and money it takes to make new games the repercussions for if one fails can be severe.
Only once Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice has released, on February 2, will we know if Rocksteady has another hit on their hands, but for the time being many fans still aren’t convinced.
