The Deadpool game that released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is getting the re-release treatment for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this November, and comes packaged with all previously-released DLC.
We didn't really dig that original release
, and based on our score, you're going to be paying a little over $10 for each increment of 1/10 we gave it at AUD$59.95. Its problems were myriad, but came very heavily down to it becoming repetitive very early on, and the basic gameplay just didn't engage. The humour was on-point, but to our reviewer Butters' point it was "like an SNL skit; amusing at first but goes on way too long".
Anyway, for the Deadpool fans out there, here's the press release:
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The original draft of Hamlet. Third-wave ska. All treasures of human vision and artistry lost to the unfathomable reaches of time. But sometimes, life, uh, finds a way. Deadpool, THE third-person action-shooter made by ME, DEADPOOL, and NOBODY ELSE, especially not anyone at Activision Publishing, Inc. or Marvel Entertainment (hey, what about ME?!) (oh, puhh-lezz!) is hitting the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One this Spring.
Here’s your fact sheet: Deadpool is a deluxe combo platter drizzled with guns, katanas, guns and katanas, explosives, pancakes, sassy one-liners, mutant powers (like my turbo healing factor), babes and baddies. “Is there more, Deadpool?” YEA, PROBABLY.
Now because I’m an incredibly honest and forthright fellow, let me just tell you: these new versions of Deadpool are not 100% perfect (of course they’re perfect. It’s Deadpool, dummy!) (No thing or person is perfect!). You see, in full-disclosure, somehow Wolverine is still in my video game. (See! I told you.) I just… ugh. But it does include all my original DLC, including two Challenge maps (“GRT Plaza” and “Inside the Tower”), as well as the form-fitting Uncanny X-Force and D-Pooly suits (I do loves me some form-fitting) for use in the never-ending thunderdome of carnage I call Infinite Mode.
I’m bringing it all to PlayStation®4 and Xbox One on Nov. 17 for $59.95 as a digital and physical retail title – however you want me, baby! (Hee hee, you know you want me.) You better believe it’s rated MA15+ (Mature Accompanied) by the Australian Classification Board, too. (YES!) (You, sir, are so NOT mature.) “But Deadpool, how can we engage with your personal brand in the meantime?” Worry not, my beloveds! You may follow me on that Facebook thingy at ‘RealDeadpool’ for all the shameless self-promotion you could ever wallow in.
Is this a game you could see yourself playing again, or for the first time if you didn't play on last-gen?
