Rocksteady Studios emphasized that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be a story-driven action adventure in its latest deep-dive reveal, but its post-launch plans seem to still fall very squarely into the live-service mold. The studio provided more detail on the game’s seasonal updates and battle passes today, including that players won’t need to spend money to acquire new characters.
Despite existing in the Batman: Arkham Knight universe, Suicide Squad comes with all of the modern multiplayer features, boondogles, and annoyances. A press release accompanying today’s announcement is practically a checklist of every way major publishers are trying to recoup the costs of big budget blockbusters without continually raising the price of their games.
