From legendary creator Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Devil May Cry) and Platinum Games (Bayonetta, Mad World), comes Vanquish.
The earth’s resources are dwindling, and governments battle to control a space station capable of providing alternative energy. You must don the most advanced combat suit available and step into this maelstrom of war to bring order to the chaos. With style!
Why take cover when you can run, gun, boost and leap across the battlefield in a balletic storm of bullets! The more stylish you are, the more points you’ll rack up as you chain combo-kills together and pirouette through the ranks of your enemies.
Will you Vanquish, or be Vanquished?
Cold War reignited
Vanquish depicts a near future scenario in which Russia and the United States are fighting for ownership of the world's fast-depleting energy resources. The US has created a space station designed to harness energy from the sun, but it's captured by Russian forces that use its solar energy to destroy San Francisco. Russia then threatens to annihilate New York unless its rival surrenders.
A third-person cover-based shooter, it places you in the boots of Sam, a US government agent tasked with recapturing the space station from Russian controlled robots before the enemy can wield its mighty power again. Kitted out with a futuristic battle suit, Sam's an athletic combatant equipped with a deadly arsenal of weapons and ruthless martial arts skills.
