The Merc with a Mouth is coming to Marvel Strike Force for a limited time.
Deadpool will appear in the mobile game through June 10 as an unlockable character and antagonist. The wisecracking antihero's arrival was announced in a trailer as the S.H.I.E.L.D. medic from the game's TV spot recounts his latest romantic woes and run-ins with Deadpool. In short, he was catfished by "Dee Dee," aka Wade Wilson.
During this in-game event period tying into the release of Deadpool 2, players can participate in new Deadpool-themed Raids and Blitzes as they take on enemies of SHIELD and, occasionally, Deadpool himself.
Through these in-game events, Deadpool-themed gear can be earned through chimichanga premium mOrbs. Deadpool Orb Fragments earned through Deadpool Raids and Blitzes can be used to unlock the Merc with a Mouth himself for gameplay.
To continue to promote Deadpool 2 and expand on the events marking the titular mercenary's inclusion in the game, Marvel teases the arrival of Deadpool's greatest frenemy, Cable, in Marvel Strike Force next week.
Released on March 28, Marvel Strike Force is a turn-based action RPG developed by FoxNext featuring Marvel's vast catalog of heroes and villains with players unlocking new characters and gear through squad-based missions. It is available on iOS and Android platforms.
