Despite its gameplay debut going over as well as Snorlax clearing a high jump, WB Games’ and Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League moves on — shattered femurs notwithstanding. And you may be able to try Suicide Squad later this month during a closed alpha playtest you can sign up for now.
The closed Suicide Squad playtest cracks off next week. WB Games sent out the invite earlier today, allowing some a chance to sign up ahead of time. The test starts on November 30 at 6 am PT and ends on December 4 at midnight PT. Warner Bros. states in the invite that the Suicide Squad playtest is comprised of a “smaller, specific section of the campaign” and “will not be representative of the full/final experience.”
Who can join the Suicide Squad playtest?
According to the invite, the technical test is opening for a “limited audience.” You can sign up and pick a platform, which includes PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam). But you’ll need to sign an NDA to participate, which restricts you from sharing images or screenshots, video, or any impressions. As typical with closed tests, there’ll be a watermark superimposed on your gameplay that’s meant to shy folks away from sharing anything.
The test is, of course, preparing Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League for its big launch next year. Rocksteady’s next action game was meant to land this last May. It got hit by a massive delay, pushing it to February 2, 2024 (so far). The delay notice came out not long after its gameplay trailer reveal during Sony’s State of Play. It wasn’t fully known if the unenthused reactions caused the delay, but it seemed folks were more cautious over the apparent live-service features of the game.
Either way, some players will be able to check out the game for the first time in just over a week. Hopefully, the delay will bear some fruit. Personally, I am somewhat interested in trying out the game and seeing what I can do as Captain Boomerang armed with his iconic shotgun.
