Rocksteady Studios recently unveiled the details of the forthcoming update for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and it seems they've had to tackle a fiery predicament caused by some crafty players exploiting a Burn-related bug. Fear not, though, as the upcoming patch not only addresses this issue but also brings a host of other exciting changes. In a surprising twist, Rocksteady couldn't help but commend the Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League fandom for their audacious game-breaking feats so soon after its release.
The long-awaited AAA title from the esteemed developers of the Batman Arkham series hit the shelves on January 30, igniting a mixed response from critics. However, the game garnered a more encouraging reaction from its devoted fandom, as evident in the game's Steam player ratings, currently residing in the "Very Positive" category, with nearly 3,500 glowing reviews.
While the PC version of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League stumbled out of the gate in terms of audience size, the game has seen no shortage of players eager to explore its explosive world. It didn't take long for one particular strategy to surface online, completely shattering the game's delicate balance. This strategy revolves around Burn builds, taking advantage of a bug that causes the central status effect to deal damage far beyond what the game initially intended. Rocksteady took to the game's official Discord channel to address this issue, assuring players that the upcoming update will put Burn builds back in their place, making higher Mastery Levels a true challenge once again.
Rather than scold the players for their unruly behavior, Rocksteady decided to tip their hat to the mischievous gamers, applauding their game-breaking exploits. As a testament to their audacity, the upcoming update will introduce a new leaderboard, immortalizing those who achieved ridiculous Mastery Levels with their broken Burn builds. It's a celebration of chaos, where players will compete to reign supreme in the post-Burn-nerf era, where all Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Afflictions will hopefully function as originally intended.
But that's not all the update has in store. Rocksteady has taken this opportunity to rebalance the game's endgame offerings and inject some much-needed excitement. One of the key changes involves making enemy health scale less aggressively after reaching Mastery Level 50, providing a more tolerable late-game grind. Additionally, two notorious items, The Heat Wave's Molten Skin and The Turtle's Shell, are getting a much-needed nerf. Rocksteady concluded that these items made the game too easy due to their easily triggered effects. Instead of providing complete immunity, both items will now offer a mere 90% damage reduction following the update.
Although the release date for the upcoming update remains a mystery, Rocksteady Community Manager Darroch Brown assures us that the patch has already begun in-house testing as of February 8 and will be unleashed upon the world "soon." These fixes are just the tip of the iceberg; Rocksteady has big plans for the live-service shooter, with recent leaks hinting at a content-packed Season 1 for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is an action-adventure game that takes place in the Arkhamverse, developed by the illustrious Rocksteady Studios. Set a few months after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight, players can embrace their inner antihero by choosing one of four captivating characters: Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, or King Shark. Together, they must strive to thwart the sinister Brainiac and the Justice League, who have fallen under his mind control.
So get ready, dear players, for the Burn bug's impending demise and the new challenges that lie ahead. It's time to blaze a trail through the chaotic world of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and show the gaming universe just how hot you can be!
