The highly anticipated game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has unveiled its approach to a battle pass, deviating from the typical limited-time model seen in other live-service games. Rocksteady, the studio behind the game, has announced that players will have the opportunity to complete goals on the free and paid-for premium tracks at their own pace, eliminating the pressure of grinding within a specified timeframe. This move is in response to criticism from players who have long been dissatisfied with the limited-time design of battle passes, as it often forces them to dedicate considerable time to the game in order to unlock coveted cosmetic items. With this new approach, Rocksteady aims to respect the personal time of its players, allowing them to enjoy the game without feeling pressured to keep up with time-limited content.
Furthermore, the studio has also revealed that players will have the chance to go back and play previous battle passes after a season ends, ensuring that all cosmetic items created by the team will remain available for players to enjoy. In addition, the game will offer the flexibility for solo runs of endgame content, acknowledging that players have lives outside of gaming. This commitment to providing a generous and accommodating gaming experience aligns with Rocksteady’s overall post-launch direction for Suicide Squad. The studio aims to avoid creating a game that feels like a never-ending commitment, instead offering players the freedom to engage with the game on their own terms.
In a recent discussion on the Suicide Squad Discord, the development team expressed their desire for the game to be enjoyable without imposing a sense of obligation on the players. Studio director Darius Sadeghian emphasized the team’s intention to ensure that players feel they are getting the most out of their gaming experience, without the fear of missing out on exclusive content due to time constraints. This player-focused approach has been well-received by the gaming community, with many expressing their anticipation for a more accommodating and flexible gaming experience. With Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League set for release on February 2, players can look forward to a game that respects their personal time and offers a more inclusive approach to live-service gaming.
