According to the FAQ page, Suicide Squad will require a permanent online connection even if you play alone. This information comes directly from the official website, so there is no doubt, we must be connected to the internet whether we like it or not. As many of you already know, Suicide Squad will have a cooperative mode of up to 4 players, who will come together to distribute blows left and right.
These types of actions in video games are carried out to prevent hacking in games. Other protection systems such as DRM require a connection to verify that we own the game, forcing ourselves to a constant connection is not common. In games in which we are connected to a server all the time, they may make some sense, but in games in which we have an individual mode, this still does not make sense.
Suicide Squad will require permanent online connection
From the official page we are not given any information about why we should be tied to this connection, although it is likely that it has something related to multiplayer. The next question is what will happen if Warner Bros. decides to shut down these servers, which would make all copies of the game unusableincluding physical copies, since access to the game could not be validated and therefore we would not be able to start it.
It is not a logical move either, current games like Monster Hunter Rise or Gotham Knights also have cooperative modes, but we are not forced to be connected. To get a real idea of this procedure, games like It Takes Two, which forces us to play yes or yes cooperatively, does not force us to be connectedbeing able to play in cooperative offline mode and, in addition, locally.
In this way, Suicide Squad will require permanent online connection and joins Redfall in a practice that has always been a reason for complaint by the communitywhich does not see this type of action as something positive but rather as a type of shackles that have us necessarily tied to an internet connection, even when we have no intention of playing cooperatively.
