The game will be a third-person action game, with new combos becoming available to Deadpool as he progresses. The game will be a combination of melee and shooting, with huge emphasis in big hammers, sai, swords and guns. Deadpool will frequently break the fourth wall and verbally interact with the player based on their skill and progress. For instance, in the options menu, he will begin to tap the glass of the television set, before asking, “Hey, got any girls in there?” Deadpool has the opportunity to directly address the player, where he tells them to press a certain button to do certain commands. When presented with the right combination of platforms, he wearily suggests new moves, such as the novel idea of ‘wall jumping’. Deadpool will also show some exaggerated acts of violence, like yelling “No guts no glory” when hanging from his entrails, or shouting “Oh that's gonna leave a mark” when dismembering an enemy.


Former Deadpool writer Daniel Way wrote the story together with High Moon Studios, bringing in his trademark humor from the comics to video games. The story is set with Deadpool accepting a mission to assassinate News Reporter Chance White a corrupt media mogul, whose television channel produces such quality programming as “Jump the Shark”, in which celebrities must literally jump over a tank of water containing a ravenous great white shark. The plot also involves Mister Sinister who is scouring a former mutant haven called Genosha for new DNA to use in his armies.

Other Marvel comic-book characters, such as Domino, Wolverine (who will be voiced by John DiMaggio), Cable, Rogue, Red Hulk, Mister Sinister and his Marauders, namelyArclight, Blockbuster, Vertigo, and Riptide, as well as Psylocke are set to appear in the video game.


The game is due to be released on June 25, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3, while the PC version is set for release on June 14, 2013. A PC version has been announced, with a full list of achievements available in the Deadpool video game have been leaked on via the PC gaming platform Steam. The ESRB rating page has also been updated to list a PC version of the game.
