News: Deadpool to be Re-Released on XB1, PS4
Last-generation game Deadpool will be headed to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year, packed with plenty of bonus content for all to enjoy.
The announcement that the game would be receiving a re-release came via a tweet sent out by American retail company GameStop, which read:

The updated version will include two extra levels, alternate suits, and all of the DLC that was previously released for the game, according to GameStop’s official website.
The re-release may come as a shock to many, as Deadpool was not the success that fans and publisher Activision were hoping for. The game received mediocre reviews from various outlets and was generally met with shrugs from those who had played it.
Deadpool will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 17, at a retail price of $49.99.
I don’t understand the argument people make about there being too many re-releases. Yes, we all want to see new games, but this gives people who didn’t play the game the first time around the chance to experience it. Don’t like it? Don’t buy it! High Moon Studios initially developed Deadpool, and now they are currently working alongside Bungie on Destiny, so it’s not like the talent studio is going to waste.
I do, however, think that $50 is a little steep.
