Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League isn’t coming to past-gen consoles

Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios presented their latest trailer for the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League at The Game Awards on Thursday. The trailer featured a lengthy gameplay preview and a confirmed release date of sometime in 2022. Suicide Squad is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. There was no mention of it coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Gameplay Trailer | Game Awards 2021

Rocksteady revealed glimpses of gameplay through past trailers and social media snippets before, but nothing as in-depth as the gameplay in The Game Awards trailer. Developers announced they would be appearing at The Game Awards with a gameplay preview on social media before the show.

In the trailer, Suicide Squad members Harley Quinn, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, and Deadshot ripped apart the city with their powers and abilities in what seemed like a citywide battle. Each member showcased their own unique fighting style based on their strengths —  fists in the case of King Shark and blasters for Deadshot. The team faced a corrupted version of the Flash and other demonic creatures running amok in the city. Though they weren’t featured, other members of the Justice League will likely appear in the game, too.

Suicide Squad is only one of the comic book hero video games announced in recent years. Other comic book-related titles include Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel’s Avengers, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

Rocksteady Games originally announced Suicide Squad in 2020 at the DC FanDome. For reference, Rocksteady Studios already produced critically acclaimed DC-related work for the Batman Arkham series. So, at the very least, the game has some developers who are familiar with DC behind the wheel.

All XDefiant characters and how to unlock them
XDefiant

XDefiant is a free-to-play shooter from Ubisoft, which brings together multiple factions from the publisher's long list of franchises. Each of these factions have their own abilities and passives that make them suited for certain playstyles, so knowing which one works best for you should be an important part of your strategy. While individual characters within these factions share the same abilities, unlocking them all gives you access to more customization options via unique skins.

If you'd like to unlock every character in the game, you'll need to complete challenges that typically ask you to use one of their faction's two abilities on your foes or allies. These can take quite a while to finish, so an alternative method is to purchase a skin for that character in the shop, which will automatically unlock them for you to use. However, this costs real money, so we only recommend doing it if you already know you want the skin, too.

Is XDefiant free?
XDefiant

XDefiant is a compelling first-person shooter that Ubisoft has positioned as a direct competitor to games like Call of Duty, and it seems to be paying off so far with plenty of buzz about the game. Now that it's available for everyone to dive into, excitement is at an all-time high, so it makes sense that you may be wondering what the hype is all about. Of course, with game prices getting so expensive these days, you may also be wondering whether it's going to cost you to check out XDefiant. We've got some good news for you below.
Is XDefiant free?
Put simply: Yes, XDefiant is a free-to-play game. You can download the game on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or PC right now and jump into some matches without paying a dime.

However, like similar free live service games, such as Fortnite or Apex Legends, XDefiant is monetized via microtransactions. This means you can purchase things like character and weapon skins, animations, and more using real money — though Ubisoft has promised that these are purely cosmetic and will never grant a competitive advantage to players who buy them.

Is Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox?
A soldier in silhouette in Helldivers 2.

Helldivers 2 was a massive hit right out of the gate for developer Arrowhead Game Studios, and the game's popularity has only grown since its release in February of this year. Shedding the top-down perspective of the first Helldivers, this cooperative third-person shooter took the world by surprise by being equally hilarious, fun, and challenging. It demands everyone work together to overcome massive hordes of bugs while also dealing with the fact that one player's slipup could derail the whole mission in the most humorous fashion. It's a total riot, and it's not hard to see why.

However, players on Xbox haven't had an opportunity to join in on the fun, as the game is only available on PlayStation 5 and PC. Since so many modern games have timed exclusivity, you may be wondering if that's the case for Helldivers 2, and we've got the answer for you below.
Will Helldivers 2 ever come to Xbox?
It's very unlikely that Helldivers 2 will ever come to Xbox consoles. The primary reason for this is that Helldivers 2 is published by Sony Computer Entertainment, which is a direct competitor to Microsoft. Sony is known for being very protective of IPs and brands, meaning the company tends to keep its published games off of competing consoles.
