Maintenance Mishaps: Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Faces Early Access Woes


In a peculiar turn of events, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has found itself in the dreaded clutches of maintenance mode not once, but twice since its highly anticipated early access window opened. It's like inviting a group of misfit superheroes to a party, only to have the DJ constantly interrupt the music.

Shortly after the game's early access period kicked off for players in the New Zealand time zone, disaster struck. Less than an hour into the festivities, the game was abruptly pulled offline. The culprit? A pesky bug that had the audacity to mark players' story completion at 100% as soon as they logged in, effectively locking them out of any main missions. It's like being handed a cape and then being told you can't fly.

But that was only the beginning of the saga. The following morning, as the sun began its ascent, the game's Twitter account dropped another bombshell. "Scheduled maintenance," they said, starting at the ungodly hour of 03:30 PT (06:30 ET/11:30 GMT). Players unfortunate enough to be online at that time were mercilessly logged out, left to ponder their virtual fate. The game would remain offline "until maintenance has been completed." Thankfully, the maintenance concluded in just under 90 minutes, but the burning question remains: What did they aim to achieve? It's like trying to decipher the secret code of the Justice League's headquarters.

For a game that had the audacity to charge players an extra $30 for the privilege of early access, this is starting to look like a major blunder. Sure, the deluxe edition promised battle pass tokens and cosmetics, but let's be honest, the real draw was the ability to play the game a whopping 72 hours before the rest of the world. But with the back-to-back maintenance mishaps, that figure suddenly dwindled down to a mere 63 hours. Some players are even claiming they've only had a paltry hour or less to frolic in the virtual chaos. It's like being promised a superhero extravaganza and receiving a sidekick's sidekick.

Developer Rocksteady seems to be trying its best to minimize the impact on players, scheduling maintenance during the wee hours of the morning in the US. However, that doesn't change the fact that players in other parts of the world have been unceremoniously booted out of the game for the second time in as many days. It's like being thrown off the Batmobile just as Batman was about to reveal his secret identity.

But amidst the chaos, brave players who managed to explore Metropolis have stumbled upon some intriguing secrets. They've uncovered a touching tribute to the late Batman and Harley Quinn voice actors, Kevin Conroy and Arleen Sorkin, reminding us of the heroes who came before. And there are tantalizing hints of other characters waiting in the wings for the game's post-launch seasons. It's like finding hidden treasures in the darkest corners of a supervillain's lair.

Fear not, fellow gamers, for the full release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League on February 2 is just around the corner. Prepare for an influx of eager players, ready to unleash their inner misfit superheroes upon the virtual world. It's like assembling a ragtag team of unlikely heroes to save the day.

Behind the scenes, Warner Bros bosses are working towards a closer relationship between DC's movies and games. It's like merging parallel universes, where the excitement of the silver screen collides with the interactivity of the gaming realm. The possibilities are as vast as the multiverse itself.

So, hold on tight, intrepid gamers, as we navigate through these maintenance mishaps and eagerly await the moment when Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League bursts forth in all its glory. The game may be facing some early access woes, but remember, even the greatest superheroes stumble before they soar. It's time to suit up, embrace the chaos, and unleash your inner anti-hero.
