The over-the-top-action-filled game has everyone talking with each trailer, gameplay footage and screenshots. To help quench your thirst for more Vanquish-related media and ease your wait for the game’s release, a new batch of screens have been released showcasing why this certain title is in every gamers mind.
Vanquish is primarily a third-person shooter with a prominence on action. The game, which is currently scheduled for an October release, will follow a government-backed soldier named Sam as he takes on hordes of robotic enemies which is set in a planet where an energy crisis has again put the America and Russia at odds.
Vanquish is the last of four games that fall under a publishing deal PlatinumGames signed with Sega back in 2008. Other titles released as part of said deal include Madworld, Bayonetta, and Infinite Space.
