9th July 2010 - SEGA Europe Ltd. is excited to confirm that VANQUISH, the epic sci-fi third-person action shooter from acclaimed game director Shinji Mikami, will hit stores across Australia on October 21st 2010 and New Zealand on October 22nd 2010. In addition to this news, customers who pre-order a copy of the game with selected stores will receive exclusive access to a three-weapon pack, available via Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Store on the same day.
The Tri-Weapon pack contains a small arsenal of experimental technology, made up of the Boost Machine Gun, Anti-Armor Pistol and Laser Cannon. This triple threat of futuristic weaponry gives players an edge in surviving the frenetic and massive battles onboard the vast space station setting of VANQUISH. The Boost Machine Gun is an early experimental weapon with impressive overall fire power and the speed to dispense rounds similar to that of a heavy machine gun. The Anti-Armor Pistol fires a special penetrative shell and was manufactured to tackle hostile forces with much stronger armour. Finally, the Laser Cannon is a miniaturised space warship laser and is more powerful than any other weapon available for infantry.
VANQUISH will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system across Australia on October 21st and New Zealand on October 22nd. To find a store to pre-order please contact your local SEGA offices. For more information about the game please visit www.vanquish-game.com.
