SEGA announces Vanquish PC port to release May 25

Vanquish PC port
Hot on the heels of a highly successful Bayonetta PC port, SEGA and Platinum Games have yet again fulfilled the wishes of their fans with a highly requested PC port of Vanquish. The game is a high-speed adrenaline third-person shooter from Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, The Evil Within, God Hand). It will release on May 25. Sega has released a new announcement trailer for the game.

Vanquish was originally released in 2010 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The PC version will feature a few notable improvements. These include support for up to 4K resolution, mouse and keyboard support, and unlocked frame rate. In addition, the game’s Steam store page highlights Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Cloud Saves, and Big Picture.

Further down the list are graphic adjustments that enthusiasts go nuts for in a PC port: anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality. That’s a whole lot of customization for a 7-years-old game!

“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 at Sega Europe) in a Press Release released by SEGA.

Where to Buy the Vanquish PC Port

The Vanquish PC port can now be pre-purchased for a Deluxe Digital edition on Steam that includes a 5-track soundtrack sampler, character avatars, and wallpapers. Owners who purchased Bayonetta will get 25% off on Vanquish and vice versa.

SEGA has had a very successful run of porting fan-favorite console games to the PC that started with Valkyria Chronicles.

Vanquish was originally developed by Platinum Games for SEGA as part of a 3-game publishing deal that also included Bayonetta and MadWorld. 

While Mikami developed Vanquish under PlatinumGames, he has since moved to Bethesda with his own company TangoGameworks.
