Suicide Squad leak appears to show live service features, including a battle pass

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League delayed

The Live Service Squad

It looks like Warner Bros. and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League may have some live service features tied into it. A new leak, with details corroborated by VGC, shows mentions of live service features that include a battle pass.

The leaked image circulated out from 4chan and Reddit and was soon picked up by news outlet VGC. According to a source VGC spoke to, the image comes from a recent test build and shows menus planned for Rocksteady’s next game. Among these elements are a battle pass, store, and currencies, which would imply some live service features could be in the game.

VGC reports that a development source has said a battle pass is planned, but it would be focused on cosmetic content. The currencies shown also reportedly pertain to XP and skill trees for characters. These characters won’t start off weak, according to VGC’s source, but will “start off great and can get ridiculous, like Arkham Knight‘s Batman.”

A suicide mission

We haven’t seen much Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League gameplay yet that could further back this up or not. Most recently, we saw a cinematic tease of the upcoming anti-hero brawler at The Game Awards 2022. Alongside a release date confirmation for May 26, 2023, Rocksteady also confirmed that Kevin Conroy would be the voice of Batman as well. The voice actor, who played Batman in both the Arkham games series and many animated adaptations, including Batman: The Animated Series, died last year.

This is Rocksteady’s first game since 2015’s Arkham Knight, so fans are likely curious about how these systems pan out. If these shots are from an internal test version, things could potentially shift. Hopefully we’ll learn more about what’s in store for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League sometime between now and its May release date.
