If you play MARVEL Strike Force, then you’re well aware that it is getting a major update today thanks to all of the system warning that have been popping up in the game about it. Well, we now know why the game is going down at 2pm EST for maintenance, and it has something to do with a little Marvel movie opening this week.

That’s right, the next big event in Strike Force will be framed around Deadpool! There will be a new Deadpool event, as well as Deadpool raids, just like the Thanos event and raids that ended this week for Infinity War. Players can earn special chimichanga orbs to unlock Deadpool, so make sure to sign in later today after the update to get the party started. Cable will also be coming to the game on May 24th, so Deadpool will have his boyfriend to pal around with.

You can check out a new trailer for this update above.

About the Deadpool Event

Calling all agents of S.T.R.I.K.E.! There’s a new antihero on the block and he’s known for causing mischief. To celebrate the cinematic release of Deadpool 2, the Regenerating Degenerate himself is taking over MARVEL Strike Force from now through June 10, with tons of new Deadpool 2-themed content to check out.

Starting today, S.T.R.I.K.E. agents can work to unlock and battle against the immortal antihero in brand-new Deadpool 2-themed Raids and Blitzes. As an ally of your Strike Force, utilize Deadpool’s eclectic arsenal of weapons and kick-ass moves to battle it out against the enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D and earn “chimichanga” premium mOrbs for special Deadpool 2-themed gear. Based on your level in the game, Deadpool could also be your enemy in battle, so be prepared to fend off piñatas full of tricks and surprises.
