Vanquish has been confirmed for PC by SEGA, arriving on May 25th. After its initial release date in 2010 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, the third person shooter will receive the recent Bayonetta treatment. This version includes uncapped framerate and resolution, new graphical settings and digital goodies for those who buy the Deluxe Edition on Steam.
Plus, all Bayonetta owners will receive a 25% off discount if they purchase the game before launch. After the success of Bayonetta’s port on PC, it was likely that SEGA was already planning on bringing more old gems to Steam’s catalog. The port included new graphical settings such as antialasing, antisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality, post-processing effects and more. Vanquish will behave in the same way, alongside the possibility to change the resolution up to 4K.
All players will be able opt for the original voices: voice overs, subtitles, and game menus can be switch to any language combination. Also, this version includes total integration with Steamworks: Trading Cards, Steam Cloud Save and Achievements.
SEGA started to tease the possibility of seeing Vanquish on PC a few days ago. First, an image with “2017” on a side was posted on SEGA Europe’s Twitter account, along with a logo that fans instantly recognized. Then, only a day after, another image was shared, now with a “25” on it. Lastly, a final image containing a “5” was posted today, which indicated that the potential date could be 5/25. Indeed, the folks at SEGA didn’t take long to release the official PC trailer alongside the official Steam Store Page.
Vanquish is a fast paced third person shooter that was initially launched on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Directed by Shinji Mikami, known for the Resident Evil franchise, the game took us to a futuristic era filled with many weapons, strange combat suits and giant mechs. Vanquish‘s campaign is rather short and can be completed in around 6 hours, but all the extras (aside from reaching 100%) increases that number potentially. If you never owned one of the mentioned consoles, or you are looking to have a re-visit with a modern touch, this is the perfect chance to dive in.
