The wait is finally over, Deadpool fans. The rerelease of the video game starring one of the most tongue-in-cheek characters in comics hit shelves today for the Xbox One.
High Moon Studios' Deadpool was first released back in 2013 with positive reviews for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
After the PC version then popped up on Steam back in July, Activison announced that the game would get an upgrade and would soon be available for the current consoles on the market.
Gamers can now purchase a physical or digital copy of Deadpool for their Xbox One. The superhero title will also be released for the PS4, but it does not yet appear in the PlayStation store. It's expected to be released soon.
The game features the voice of Nolan North, although it's still not clear what kind of visual upgrades the game received. However, two levels and two suits that were released as DLC for the older consoles will be included in the game.
And according to the over-the-top trailer, fans of the superhero will not be disappointed by the action or funny one liners.
The official description of the game is as follows:
There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.) I'm a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I've been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I'm gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!).
The game is a third-person action shooter, where players can string together combos to kill enemies with ease. Deadpool will also have some of his favorite things in the game including katanas, guns, explosives and duct tape. There will even be cameos from some X-Men characters.
Deadpool retails for $49.99 for both Xbox and PS4. Activision will also rerelease the game for Xbox 360 and PS3, although it retails for the same price.
At least gamers will be able to get into the action now as we wait for the Feb. 12, 2016, theatrical release of the Deadpool movie.
