Suicide Squad requires a permanent internet connection even during a solo game
The first gameplay trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League was revealed in yesterday’s episode of State of Play, which confirmed that it is a service game focused on single and co-op play and will be supported with new content and activities periodically.
Developer Rocksteady Studios has provided plenty of story and new gameplay details, including more details on the setting of the game, an open-world shooter that essentially blends Batman: Arkham Knight with Sunset Overdrive-like action and pacing.

The title lets you play as one of four members of the Suicide Squad including Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang, whose squad of supervillains is tasked with stopping Brainiac’s invasion of Metropolis.
The game is set in the Arkham universe roughly five years after Arkham Knight, and the villains are highly mobile, able to fight, fly, and even dash at high speed through the city to battle enemies and unleash their various skills.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will launch on May 26th on PS5, Windows and Xbox Series X | S, and the game will require a permanent internet connection even while playing solo.
