Deadpool will be released in the U.S. on June 25 for PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360, Activision has announced.

No European date has been confirmed, though we’d expect it to come out on Friday, June 28.

The publishing powerhouse also confirmed a number of pre-order incentives for GameStop and Amazon customers.

Gamers who pre-order through GameStop will bag two challenge mode maps, two exclusive suits for infinite mode and digital wallpaper.

Amazon meanwhile will bag you $5 credit towards selected Marvel graphic novels, plus an exclusive digital wallpaper and cover sleeve.

Deadpool features Nolan North as the eponymous anti-hero, and takes the form of a third-person actioner placing emphasis on sword and gunplay-based combat. Gamers can look forward to plenty of fourth wall-breaking shenanigans as Deadpool frequently addresses the player based on their progress.
