Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Players Gifted $20 Following Server Downtime During Early Access


Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s early release was interrupted by a 6-hour server shutdown but Rocksteady is giving out $20 worth of in-game currency to make amends. Read on to learn more about the server shutdowns and Rocksteady’s response.

Rocksteady Gifts Early Release Players $20 of In-Game Currency


It starts with sorry, I guess. Rocksteady has issued an official acknowledgment of their unforeseen server maintenance during the early release of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The acknowledgment came as an in-game message for Deluxe Edition players who were locked out of servers for roughly 6 hours on release day.

“Thank you for being one of our first console players during early access of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League,” said Rocksteady in the in-game message. “We recognize that you’ve been patient with us during our initial launch server updates and we’d like to show our appreciation for your patience with a special gift of 2000 LuthorCoins. Thank you again!”

As stated above, all Deluxe Edition players will be getting 2000 LutherCoins – in-game currency valued at $20 – for their patience during the maintenance. The currency can be used to purchase in-game skins for the game’s colorful roster of DC characters, each costing 1000 LutherCoins (upwards of 2000 LC for Legendary Skins).

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League's Rocky Early Release

Rocksteady’s attempt at making amends is in response to the game’s disastrous early release, which was delayed by a server maintenance shutdown that lasted beyond 6 hours. Although the initial release went swimmingly, Rocksteady shut down the game’s servers an hour later to address a potentially game-breaking bug that caused players to 100% the game despite only just starting it.

Rocksteady took to Twitter (X) to address the issue, stating “We’re aware that a number of players are currently experiencing an issue whereby upon logging into the game for the first time, they have full story completion.”


“To resolve this issue, we will be performing maintenance on the game servers,” the post continued. “During this time the game will be unavailable. We expect this to take several hours and will update once we have more information. We apologise for the inconvenience.”

The day following the game’s early release saw a 791% spike in searches for “Suicide Squad refund”, according to analytics firm McLuck. This does not bode well for a game that isn’t technically out yet, but considering the Deluxe Edition’s $100 price tag, the public outrage is understandable.

The game is currently playable to Digital Deluxe Edition players, although there’s no guarantee for how long the servers will stay up. With the game’s complete lack of an offline mode, any server interruption is sure to raise more outrage.
