Warner Bros. Gifts Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Deluxe Edition Owners $20 of In-Game Currency

Warner Bros. has gifted Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League Deluxe Edition owners $20 of in-game currency as a make-good for server issues that rendered the always-online game unplayable for periods during launch.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League arrived on January 30, 2024 for those who paid $100 for the Deluxe Edition, granting customers a three days’ head start over everyone else.

But the early launch had issues, including a bizarre bug that automatically completed Suicide Squad for some and forced the game offline for more than six hours. Additional downtime prevented players from logging on before the servers stabilized, but not before disgruntled customers complained about not getting their money’s worth.

Now, Warner Bros. has sent affected customers an in-game message about the gift. “Thank you for being one of our first console players during early access of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League,” the message reads, per a post from X/Twitter user @JayShockblast. “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!”

2000 LutherCoins cost $20, and will get you a couple of standard in-game skins or a single deluxe or legendary skin.

The furore over Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League’s launch issues have renewed calls for the promised offline mode to be added to the game as soon as possible. With Suicide Squad launching for standard edition owners on February 2, all eyes on are on the servers to see if they hold firm, or render the game unplayable once again.

This week, IGN reported that Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League isn’t the late Kevin Conroy's final Batman performance, as previously suspected. Conroy, of course, is beloved for his performance as Batman both in The Animated Series and Rocksteady’s Arkham series of video games. With that in mind, controversy arose in regards to one of his scenes in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. We won't spoil the specific details (you can learn more here), but one scene had many fans feeling that it was an unceremonious goodbye to Conroy's time as Batman.
