'Deadpool' video game debuts launch trailer: 'Drop the beat!'

Ahead of the arrival of the Deadpool video game on Tuesday, IGN. com has debuted the gameplay launch trailer for the third-person shooter from Marvel, Activision and High Moon Studios.

"This is my launch trailer," the Merc with a Mouth says in the introduction, "and research shows that trailers, dubstep and absolute chaos go together like Wolverine and bad haircuts."

Developed for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, Deadpool is a third-person shooter in which the character — like his comic-book counterpart — breaks the fourth wall to interact with players, in between combat focusing on guns, twin swords and an expanded arsenal that includes lasers and giant hammers.
