Sega Officially Announces Vanquish For PC

Sega began teasing a certain Platinum Games title shortly after the release of Bayonetta’s release. A game that everyone has been asking for, and one that has a huge following. That game is Vanquish and for the past few days, Sega has been dropping more and more hints. 

Well, the hints are over and the actual release date has been confirmed. Set for a May 25th, 2017, release date, Vanquish will make its way to the PC! The PC port will include an unlocked framerate, resolution support up to 4K, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, and more!

Currently available for pre-order starting today, the release will also include a digital soundtrack sampler, digital artbook, wallpapers, and avatars. The game has been priced at$19.99. As an add bonus, gamers who own Bayonetta will receive 25% of the price.

SEGA Europe Ltd. is thrilled to announce that PlatinumGames’ revolutionary sci-fi action shooter VANQUISH™ will launch for PC, on Steam, on Thursday May 25th, 2017, having undergone SEGA’s renowned best practice conversion treatment. 

Pre-order VANQUISH on Steam to receive the Digital Deluxe Edition which includes a 5 track soundtrack sampler, character and enemy avatars, art book and exclusive wallpapers. Fans who already own Bayonetta on Steam or purchase it before May 25th 2017, will automatically get 25% off when they pre-order VANQUISH. However, players only have until the 25th of May, 2017, to secure the Digital Deluxe Edition via pre-ordering before it reverts to the Standard Edition.

Directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil™ series, VANQUISH is a sci-fi shooter of epic proportion. Take control of DARPA operative Sam Gideon, who has been assigned a mission to battle legions of future-tech enemies using a vast arsenal of weapons. VANQUISH boasts fluid and frenetic combat, spectacular melee moves, and intense speed, wrapped in a gripping story. VANQUISH is the latest best practice conversion from SEGA, and features a host of PC optimized options, including an unlocked framerate, 4k resolution support, extensive graphics options and full keyboard and mouse support.

“It was great to see the positive response from our community to the Bayonetta PC launch last month, and we are pleased that we are in a position to be able to announce VANQUISH, another of our highly requested back catalogue titles,” said John Clark, Senior Vice President of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe. “There’s more to come from SEGA in this space, so stay tuned for further announcements.”
