Deadpool Game Screenshots Give First Look At Cable

By Ishaan . February 5, 2013 . 4:30pm

Details on Activision and High Moon Studios’ Deadpool game are still scarce, but Marvel recently released new screenshots from the game, along with little bits of information. Here’s a bullet list of what their screens and concept art reveal:


  • Cable will be making an appearance on the game.
  • Death (I think this is the character) is in a piece of concept art.
  • The island of Genosha is in the game.
  • Another piece of concept art shows a Sentinel head in the Battle Dome.

    >Deadpool riding in one of those 25-cent rocket things
    …Yep, this is his game alright

  • Fidelis

    Lady Death is in the game?
    Rock and Roll.
    This means they’ll probably actually present Deadpool as a deeper character than most exo-comic depictions of him do.

    Now I can start worrying about gameplay

    • Solomon_Kano

      I think the gameplay will be in good hands with High Moon. It’d be nice if they’d show us some of it already, but it’s sounding good from previews. Melee with the swords, guns, using things in the environment, his healing factor coming into gameplay (his limbs can get taken off and you can reattach them or wait for them to grow back).

      It’s sounding exactly how it should right now. We just need a new freaking trailer.

    • Hey Forever are you there?

    game of the year

  • “Hey, Cable buddy.. How’s things after MvC2?”

      “proceeds to do ahvb”

  • Solomon_Kano

    CABLE! My favorite X-Man (tied with Gambit, of course) made it in! Not that I doubted he would, since High Moon has shown with Transformers that they’ll bring the expected and the unexpected. Genosha and Sentinels being in is also great to see.

    Now I’m just hoping the woman we saw in the trailer was actually Psylocke. Uncanny X-Force popping up in DP’s game would be about the best thing possible. C’mon Fantomex!

    Also! That fat enemy looks like Mister Sinister. PLEASE let Sinister be in this game! That would be awesome!

      I really wish to see Uncanny X-Force here too. And I really want Gideon Emery to voice Fantomex. His Balthier-voice would be perfect for the character.

    I’m a little disappointed with the look of the game. That color palette is just drab. Deadpool freakin’ oozes personality, the look of the game should have reflected that.

    I’m happy they got Daniel Way to write the story. Deadpool better have a showdown with Bullseye. Meat armor included.

    • MrRobbyM

      Same. The game almost looks, dare I say, low budget.

      • yeah, i am getting a “game based upon a reently released movie” vibe. but honestly, it looks like it is missing a lighting engine or something.

    • I’m sorry but um *bang bang bang bang* + boobies = awesome :)

  • Coeurl

    I’m… hopeful. But I DO take issue with the size of Wade’s head. It’s not just me, right?

  • Göran Isacson

    I do hope they’ll make more of Death than just a quick cameo and Deadpool going “yeah I totally wanna tap that gonna happen one of these days”. Like, Deadpools love with Death is a pretty messed up one, and if they actually go with that, if they present a moment that felt as poignant AND funny as the one where Deadpool met all the people he’d ever killed and basically chewed them out for trying to guilt trip him… then this will be a fine game.

    Also please to be playing up the bromance between Cable and Deadpool. if those two don’t act like an old ex-couple who had a bad breakup, I will be disappoint.

    hope they detailed a bit more the pallette, since all else looks right on.

  • Go2hell66

    as far as i’m concerned this is a marvel vs capcom spinoff game

    marvel vs capcom 4:deadpool edition


  • zferolie

    Looking great so far. Can’t wait to see more of it in motion, and I hope they don’t rush they game.

    Now, I can’t wait to see the super secret extremely tough boss of this game…. Squirrel Girl. He has lost twice to her, haha

  • If Death is in perhaps Thanos will make an appearance as well; looking good so far.

    • Solomon_Kano

      I hadn’t thought of Thanos cameoing. That would actually be awesome.

  • Crevox

    This game feels like duke nukem forever

  • z_merquise

    Nice to see some “Cable and Deadpool” reunion in this game.

    I just kinda wish they had Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force) or Joe Kelly (90’s Deadpool series) as the writer instead. I’m not a fan of how Daniel Way wrote Deadpool in his solo series.

  • Wiccan1109

    Torn. :/ I love Cable (and Psylocke if that WAS her.) and i cant imagine how cool it would be to explore Genosha, but im not sure if i could tolerate a whole game with Deadpool. I’m such a sucker for cameos though…

    Sometimes i like him, it depends on the writers. I find most of them just try way too hard to make him ‘funny’ and its lead to a bit of a cringe factor for me. I thought he was good in X-Force though, if thats the route they wanna take, i think i could enjoy it. Doesnt seem like X-Men Legends or Ultimate Alliance are ever coming back, and Destiny was pretty awful but im keeping an open mind about the game itself. It’ll be nice to see something new.

  • I don’t get how High Moons Transformers graphics looked amazing while this just looks mediocre.
