Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League experienced a setback after their servers had to be taken down within an hour of early access. This drew a lot of criticism from players eagerly waiting to play the game.

Rocksteady Games, the makers of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, were forced to take their new game offline because of a bug. This bug automatically completes the game for players the moment they launch it for the first time.

While the game hasn’t been released yet, players who’ve purchased the Deluxe Edition of the game will have 3-days of early access. The game launched in early access for Australia and New Zealand, but the servers had to be taken offline, as indicated by a post from the developers on X.

In the post, they apologized for the inconvenience and stated that the servers would be offline for several hours. This drew harsh criticism from players on social media.

Player ‘VikingNelsen’ commented on the post and thanked Australia for testing the game for everyone else. Furthermore, it’s worth noting that the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League review codes haven’t been released yet, as pointed out by another player ‘Press X, fool’. They said, “Didn’t send out review codes, let’s see what else happens.”

What’s interesting is that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a single-player game, so many players have wondered why it needs a constant internet connection. In addition to this, others have pointed out that bugs like this are why an offline mode is needed at launch.

‘SynthPotato’ said, “This is why games have offline modes, how many times do these companies have to learn the same lesson?” ‘Charlie’ added to that and said, “Offline mode needs to be a top priority.”

With the servers being taken offline, players who’ve paid for early access aren’t able to access the game. A few players have already started demanding compensation. ‘Bobby Hill’ said, “Will there be a refund for those that purchased early access?”

Amidst all this criticism, some people tried to hold on to a positive note. Player ‘Ice Wolf’ said, “Take as much time as you need. Sending good energy to the team.” With such a major setback at launch, it will be interesting to see how players react to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League once it is released fully.
