Deadpool Will Ride Unicorns or Plan a Romantic Chimichanga Dinner if You Pre-Order His Video Game


Batshit bonkers Marvel Comics anti-hero, Deadpool is taking extreme measures to promote the upcoming video game he stars in and also is developing and publishing all on his own.

The dude they call the Merc with a Mouth has negotiated deals with top video game retailers and GameStop/EB Games to offer exclusive bonus merch for pre-ordering the Deadpool game, which ships June 25th on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.


Your pre-order prizes for shopping with Amazon are a $5 credit towards Marvel graphic novels, a digital cover sleeve, and a digital wallpaper graphic of Deadpool sexily staging a romantic chimichangas for two dinner by the fireplace.


GameStop’s pre-order offer is a bit more substantial, including “Merc with a Map Pack” DLC containing two maps for use in Challenge mode; D-Pooly and Uncanny X-Force bonus costumes Deadpool will be able to rock in the game’s unlockable Infinite mode; and, for PowerUp Rewards members, an absolutely epic wallpaper of Deadpool riding a unicorn. Mind. Blown.

In the US, GameStop is also planning a special launch party at the store location that pulls in the most pre-order sales. Yes, Deadpool himself will make it a true party with a live appearance. So go pre-order already. Deadpool is one hombre you don’t want to cross.
