As a cinematic story-driven co-op action game, Rocksteady's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League
is on track for a 2023 release. It's been in development for several years and comes from a studio with a solid track record, but a leaked screenshot of the in-game menu doesn't paint a positive picture.
With tabs for a Battle Pass screen and a Store it looks like the game will be heavily monetised. Not only that, but the UI here is ugly, plain-looking, and more reminiscent of a mobile game than something born from the team behind the Arkham games.
With numbers next to the playable characters it also heavily implies that progression will follow the RPG-lite mechanics of several live service games. This isn't a bad thing per se, but if the terrible Gotham Knights
is any indication, it could end up being superfluous and there just for the sake of being there.
The screenshot also confirms that when played solo you'll be paired with bots to fill out all four slots - pointing to it being a four-player experience without scaling or solo options. No doubt it'll be interesting to see how it plays and if there's enough on offer to warrant replaying missions over and over to acquire new gear and cosmetics.
