It’s unfortunate that the fan fervour surrounding what looks to be a fun (and funny) Deadpool action game was tempered recently with the news that the game’s developer, High Moon Studios, suffered a round of layoffs following the completion of development, but Activision recently (finally) revealed a release date so that those selfsame fans can start marking calendars.
Releasing in the US on June 25th (and presumably June 28th in other regions) across Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Deadpool: The Game has luckily missed the busy E3 period but lands in a month that will no doubt be incredibly busy with game news, and a collection of other excellent titles.
If you’re in the US, you’ll be able to take advantage of the following pre-order offers (as ‘written’ by Deadpool himself):
GameStop and EBGames
MY “Merc with a Map Pack” DLC (confetti explosion!) adds two new maps ‒ GRT Plaza and Inside the Tower ‒ to Deadpool Challenge mode, as well as two b-b-b-b-bonus costumes ‒ the D-Pooly and Uncanny X-Force suits only for use in the unlockable Infinite mode where your stats are tracked on a global leaderboard.
Exclusive digital wallpaper for my PowerUp Rewards friends featuring who else ‒ me!!! I’ll probably be, like, you know, totally ripped in it and all. No bigsies. ‒ U.S. Only
A (drum roll, please) midnight launch party at the GameStop with the most pre-orders (more drums!) paid BY Activision (now the bassoon!) with a LIVE appearance from ME, Das Pool! Now’s your chance, Kodiak, Alaska GameStop customers! ‒ U.S. Only
A $5 Amazon credit towards select Marvel graphic novels‒ but seriously… buy a Deadpool graphic novel.
An exclusive digital wallpaper and digital cover sleeve, because what are you doing not staring at my perfectly sculpted body every waking moment of the day?
That’s it. Go pre-order my new game now, or else.
Are you looking forward to the adventures of Deadpool in June? Look over El33tonline’s previous coverage of the action game to see the Merc shooting up enemies and cutting them down in equal measure.
