Suicide Squad PS5

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will be supported for multiple seasons after the PS5 game comes out at the end of this week, but rather than designing it like a Destiny 2, developer Rocksteady has assured this is not a game that will dominate all your free time. Instead, part of the title's philosophy is to make sure it doesn't feel like a "life commitment".

Speaking in a Discord AMA transcribed by GamesRadar, game designer Axel Rydby explained: "We don't want the game to feel like a life commitment or be a game where you have to sacrifice a lot to see all the content on offer, or feel like you're not making good progress in the game if you can't play hundreds of hours." He then adds: "We want this game to be generous, both with your time and with all the features we have to offer."

This marks another game pulling back from the route some Games as a Service take where they're so encompassing that you'd struggle to fit many other games into your free time — examples include Destiny 2 and Genshin Impact.

In fact, Rocksteady has confirmed that all its post-launch content will still be there — all for free — ready and waiting for players who arrive late to the experience. Four seasons have been revealed so far, all of which will add new playable characters, locations, and gear. The first season, which starts in March, adds the Joker to the playable roster. These content drops are called Elseworlds, which are a lot like a multiverse setup where the Joker you'll play as in Suicide Squad isn't the same one from the Batman: Arkham games.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League launches for PS5 on 2nd February 2024, but you can get three days of early access starting this Tuesday with the more expensive Deluxe Edition. Are you eager to jump in? Let us know in the comments below.
