For those with poor internet access or zero desire to play games “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” With Friends, there’s some good new content: a post-launch update will add an offline mode.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that playing Suicide Squad will require an always-on internet connection, even if you only want to play single-player. It’s an annoying growing trend in gaming that’s understandable for games that are primarily online, but not so easy for a game like this. However, following the latest Suicide Squad trailer at this week’s Game Awards, a representative from Rocksteady shared in the official Suicide Squad Discord (no, I didn’t know it existed either) that, after all, it actually There will be an offline mode (thank you, PC gamers).
“In addition to our latest trailer, we have some news to share,” Rocksteady wrote on behalf of EpicYeti. “We’re excited to confirm that we plan to add an offline story mode, giving players the option to experience the main campaign without an internet connection. We’re aiming to add this update in 2024 and will provide more details as they become available “.
Obviously, there’s no word yet on when we can expect the update, but if you weren’t interested until you heard it was online-only, you’ll just have to wait a little longer than most players to get in. That’s not to say the game isn’t designed to be played alone if you have a stable enough internet connection, so no matter what choice you make, you’ll be fine.
The Game Awards trailer, which you can check out above, doesn’t really reveal anything new, but it does give us a fresh look at the main Justice League members you’ll eventually have to kill, as well as glimpses of the Flash and Green Lantern boss fights. Superman was teased a bit at the end, and we got to hear Kevin Conroy’s final performance as Batman.
Killing the Justice League isn’t the only Suicide Squad project next year, it also has an anime adaptation that looks good.
