In preparation for the upcoming Marvel film, major game publisher Activision will be releasing an HD remastered version of the "Deadpool" title that originally came out in 2013.
Aside from better graphic quality, the new version of the game will also come with new stages and costumes for the main character.
As reported by Gamespot, the HD remake of "Deadpool" will come out for the Playtation 4 and Xbox One on November 17 and will cost $49.99.
According to the listing of online retailer GameStop, the game comes with the original DLC "Merc with a Mouth Pack." This features two additional stages such as the GRT Plaza and the Tower to Deadpool Challenge mode. The add-on also includes the Uncanny X-Force and D-Pooly skins for the game's main character.
The re-release of the game for the next-gen consoles comes almost two months after the same "Deadpool" HD remake arrived on Steam for the PC platform.
The original version of the "Deadpool" game was released for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms in June of 2013. It was developed by High Moon Studios and follows the story of the Marvel character of the same name, also known as Wade Wilson who gained accelerated healing powers as the result of underground scientific tests.
As an action beat'em up title, the game lets players unlock various weapons and combos for Deadpool. Although the main character is armed with his default swords and firearms, players can also gain access to a variety of weapons such as plasma guns and large hammers.
"Deadpool" also features various characters from the "X-Men" universe such as Wolverine, Rogue, Sinister and Cable.
The game was available through online retailers until the end of 2013. It was then pulled out along with Activision's other Marvel-based games such as "X-Men: The Official Game," "X-Men: Origins -Wolverine," "X-Men Destiny" and various "Spider-Man" titles.
The games were removed after the licensing agreement between Marvel and Acvitision expired. Aside from the removal of the games, the publisher was also prohibited from releasing additional DLCs and other game-related items.
As for its big-screen counterpart, Marvel's "Deadpool" movie is scheduled to premiere on February 12, 2016, in North America. In the film, actor Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Wade from the movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."
The upcoming film also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller and professional MMA fighter Gina Carano.
