The much-anticipated video game based on the Deadpool comic book character is finally here (well almost.) The game arrives tomorrow and IGN recently debuted its officially launch trailer which features some of the games craziest gameplay moments. And yes, expect some X-Men cameos in this exclusive game!
Deadpool is a third-person shooting game where you play as the titular character in an all new adventure written by long time “Deadpool” writer Daniel Way.
The character of Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 back in 1991.
A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force. The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. The character, known as the “Merc with a Mouth”, is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to “break the fourth wall”, which is used by writers for humorous effect.
Deadpool was ranked 182nd on Wizard magazine’s list of the Top 200 Comic Book Characters of All Time, ranked 45th on Empire magazine’s list of The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, and placed 31st on IGN’s list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.
Deadpool will be available on June 25, 2013 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. You can watch the launch trailer below:
