Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League final system requirements demand an SSD but are otherwise pretty light

Rocksteady has dropped the final PC system requirements for the soon-to-be-live Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and on the whole they're pretty light—although if you still haven't upgraded to an SSD, now might be the time.

The SSD requirement even at the minimum spec isn't as surprising as it used to be—they're pretty ubiquitous these days—and frankly, I'd guess that you could probably still get by in Suicide Squad with a standard HDD, as long as you don't mind long loading waits and occasional mid-game hitches.

On the other hand, the performance boost is substantial (trust me, once you've spent some time using an SSD, you will never go back) and they're big and cheap enough these days to be an easy upgrade choice.

(Also note that "probably still get by" is by no means official Rocksteady or PC Gamer policy, nor is it borne of personal experience. I think of it as a bit like bombing through snow drifts in an old Honda Civic: It'll probably be fine.)

Anyway, to the numbers:

One thing you might notice is that Rocksteady's specs don't say how much of that SSD space Suicide Squad will require. According to the Steam page it'll eat up 65GB, which should be accurate—the requirements on the page otherwise comport with Rocksteady's tweet—but I've reached out to confirm, just in case.

For those curious, Suicide Squad is not currently verified for the Steam Deck: A few people on Reddit say they took it for a spin on the Deck during Suicide Squad beta testing and it was okay, but much like my HDD musings, if you want to be sure you'd best wait for official word.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is set to come out on February 2.
