Quietly announced via a GameStop Tweet earlier today, it looks as though publisher Activision is gearing up to bring the Merc with a Mouth to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a Deadpool re-release.
In a bid to piggyback off the fever-pitch hyper surrounding Ryan Reynold’s upcoming turn as the foul-mouthed mercenary, it’s understood that the remaster will be dragged kicking and screaming onto current-gen consoles in November and is to be priced at $50. Bundling together all of the additional content released for the adventure, this is the definitive edition of Deadpool in all but name.
While Activision didn’t delve into the technical specifics of the port – no word yet on whether it’ll run at 60 frames-per-second or a native 1080p – the GameStop listing indicates that the current-gen release will herald two additional levels and a pair of suits for the title anti-hero.
Here’s a list of the features we can expect in the final build.
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!
Deadpool will make the jump to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 17.
