In a move clearly designed to capitalise on the popularity of the forthcoming Deadpool movie where Ryan Reynolds is set to don the sticky red and black suit Activision have announced plans to port the 2013 Deadpool videogame to Xbox One and PS4. It’ll arrive on November 20th as both a digital download and a physical release.
The Deadpool game was fairly recently in the news when it somehow re-appeared on Steam for sale in JUly, following all Activison/Marvel games being pulled from the market due to an expired contract between the two companies. The game’s sudden reappearance on Steam coincided with the buzz being generated by the film.
The game gets Deadpool’s character and humour spot-on. Sadly as an actual game it’s not that good. Still, it’ll be worth a buy if you’re a Deadpool fan or looking to get into the character and can accept a decidedly mediocre action game.
