- Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is the latest project Rocksteady has been working on.
- The game’s closed alpha test was conducted recently, in which many took part and played the title.
- The devs say that there’s no NDA for the playtest this time, so players are free to share their experience.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has attracted controversy in spades ever since its live service nature was made official by long-time series developer Rocksteady Studios and publisher WB Games. However, there appears to be a lot more to the title than just this particular element, and in an attempt to make the positives flourish, the devs have lifted the NDA for Suicide Squad’s closed alpha playtest.
Specifically, it’s been said that a portion of the NDA has been lifted, one that allows the playtest participants to share their experience playing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League verbally, while still upholding their end of the rest of the agreement. Honestly, I believe this is a good sign of transparency that consumers are going to appreciate going forward, especially to align a proper purchasing decision when it comes down to it.
Now that there is more news out on the game and players are asking, we’re no longer enforcing a portion of the NDA and we’re allowing players to talk about their experience from the Closed Alpha Test. We’ve heard the community requests and want to give players an opportunity to discuss what it’s like to explore Metropolis as Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark.”
The third-person shooter is still a month away from release, so the outpour of feedback coming in should genuinely help Rocksteady make improvements to its live-service title accordingly. Let’s take a better look at what people seem to be thinking of Suicide Squad after going through the playtest as of late.
What Are Players Saying About Suicide Squad After The Closed Alpha?
From the looks of it, there are severely mixed opinions about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League at present, with the majority leaning toward the negative side. It helps to know that Rocksteady also conducted a preview event in recent times that major gaming publications across the spectrum attended, but left expectedly unimpressed for the most part. Here’s a round-up of the previews by Forbes.
As for what fans are saying, the majority seem to be praising Suicide Squad’s story aspect, with one playtest participant saying, “The visuals and story were top-notch. The gameplay was smooth. The loot aspect however was terrible IMO. The weapons all have arbitrary stats that just seem useless to me.” Another user on X remarked, “The banter between the characters got me hooked and the gameplay was very fluid.”
The best part of the Closed Alpha was the dialogue between characters. It's very humorous and entertaining. It felt like I was watching a movie half the time! Can't wait to play the full release January 30th! pic.twitter.com/Gpz5RI9OZ7
