In a world where the lines between virtual and real-life experiences increasingly blur, game developers are continually challenged to provide seamless gaming experiences. Rocksteady, the developer behind the much-anticipated “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League,” recently faced a significant hiccup during the game’s early access period. To compensate for the inconvenience caused by server downtime, Rocksteady has taken an unusual but appreciated step.
“Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” entered its early access phase, a period that allows dedicated gamers to play new titles before their official release. This privilege was extended to players who invested in the deluxe edition of the game, priced at $100. However, excitement quickly turned to frustration as the game encountered critical bugs shortly after going live.
A significant glitch automatically marked the storyline as complete only an hour after the game went live, prompting the developers to take the game offline. The situation was further exacerbated when, on January 30, the game faced a second downtime, cutting short the early access experience for many players.
Rocksteady’s Response: The LutherCoins Initiative
In response to these setbacks, Rocksteady has announced a compensation plan to make amends with its player base. Affected players will receive 2,000 LutherCoins, an in-game currency valued at $20.
This gesture not only serves as an apology but also demonstrates Rocksteady’s commitment to maintaining a positive relationship with its community. The developer expressed gratitude for the players’ patience during this turbulent early access period.
To claim these LutherCoins, players need to visit the Hall of Justice Mailbox in the game. However, there’s a catch: only those who actively played “Suicide Squad” during the last two days of the early access period are eligible for this compensation. Simply owning the game does not qualify one for the LutherCoins.
Brighter Horizons Ahead
Despite the rocky start, the future looks promising for “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.” Rocksteady is already generating excitement with teasers about the game’s post-launch seasons.
Players can look forward to engaging with new villains, including the likes of Mr. Freeze and potentially Deathstroke. Furthermore, the addition of a Joker character, equipped with a rocket-powered umbrella, hints at the innovative and exciting content awaiting players post-launch.
