The Merc With a Mouth isn?t a well-known character in the Marvel universe for common folks and the character has only been brought into the spotlight after the well-received trailers from the Deadpool movie. Activision now seems to be banking on the popularity of the character as they have now announced the Deadpool game release date for the Xbox One and PS4.

The game was originally released for PS3, Xbox One, and PC back in June 2013. The Deapool video game shows over-the-top action from The Merc With a Mouth as he embarks on a quest to kill the real Sinister.
True Showcase Of Character For The Merc
The game perfectly showcases the humorous nature of the character as he breaks the fourth wall numerous times. The game even starts with the self-aware protagonist telling gamers that he wants to bring the biggest blockbuster game ever despite not having read the game’s script.
Cable will be helping you maneuver around the game and you?ll also get to encounter numerous popular Marvel figures such as Wolverine, Rogue, and the large mechanical boot of a Sentinel. Playing this game is the best way to familiarize yourself before the Deadpool movie releases this February 4, 2016.
Don?t expect to see a graphical overhaul of the game as it isn?t a remaster. The game will be available for $49.99 and will include the two levels and two costumes DLC, DualShockers reported.
Here is Deadpool showing his rare Marvel humor in promoting the game:
There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (You might want to sit down for this!). I’m a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I’ve been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do same people say coo-coo?) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!)
Why My Game Is Awesome!
LET’S GET SOME ACTION: I made sure to capture all my good sides, so I made my game a third-person, action-shooter. (Yep, you get to look at my heinie.)
X-MEN GROUPIES: Keep a look out cuz some of my X-Men pals (Whoa, What Pals?!) are making an appearance.
INSANE COMBAT: I’m really good at killing, so I made it a blast stringing together combos and totally eviscerating my enemies. (Ev-is-cer-a-ting!)
WEAPONS GALORE: I brought my skills and a buttload of my favorite things. Katanas (check), guns (bang!), explosives (boom), duct tape (quack), and of course, yours truly – ME! (Checkmate!)
Bonus Content: I’m giving you even more ME! I’m including the DLC (2 sweet levels & 2 alternate suits!) from the old platforms. Consider it my gift to you, my #1 fan!
