Shinji Mikami is best known for creating terrifying works of art like the Resident Evil and The Evil Within. But the prolific developer has also tried his hand at a number of action games over the years, including 2010’s underappreciated Vanquish.
But if you missed it the first time around, Sega announced that Vanquish will soon be available for the PC (through Steam) on May 25:
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.
Best of all, Sega’s John Clark also revealed that even more Sega-published titles will soon be available for the PC.
“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 catalog titles,” said Clark, the 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.”
Steam users who pre-order Vanquish before its May 25 launch date will also receive a five-song soundtrack sampler, character and enemy avatars, a digital art book, and exclusive wallpapers. On top of that, fans who already own Bayonetta on Steam will receive an additional 25% off when they pre-order Vanquish.
