Deadpool dated for June
UPDATE: UK release date confirmed.
UPDATE: Activision's Deadpool game launches on 28th June in the UK, Activision has announced.
That's for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As you'd expect, there are pre-order incentives. Promise to buy from GAME or, in Ireland, Gamestop, and you'll get the Merc with a Map Pack, which contains two new maps for use in Deadpool's Challenge mode and the D-Pooly and Uncanny X-Force bonus costumes for use in the unlockable Infinite mode.
ORIGINAL STORY: High Moon Studios' upcoming Deadpool game has been dated for 25th June on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, publisher Activision has announced.
That's a Tuesday, so it must be referring to the North American release date. Ostensibly it will come out the following Friday, 28th June here, but this has yet to be confirmed. Rest assured, we're looking into it.
Curiously, Deadpool will retail at a reduced price of $49.99 (about £33) on consoles and $39.99 (about £26) on PC, suggesting that it will launch cheaper in Europe as well.
North Americans can pre-order Deadpool at GameStop to receive two bonus Challenge Mode stages - GRT Plaza and Inside the Tower - and Amazon pre-orders come with a $5 gift voucher to be used on select comics.
