After a series of teases over the past few weeks, today, Sega officially announced that Vanquish is coming to PC via Steam on May 25th.
The PC version will feature an unlocked framerate, aka you can crank it up from 60fps. Additionally, there is 4k resolution support, graphics options including anti-aliasing, scalable texture and shadow quality, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, Steam support, Steam achievements, Steam Cloud Save, Big Picture Mode, leaderboards, Trading Cards, full keyboard and mouse support, and full EFIGS and Japanese support (voiceovers, subtitles, and game menus in any language combination).
According to Sega, if you preorder Vanquish on Steam and other SEGA approved retailers you will receive the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game which includes a 5 track soundtrack sampler, character and enemy avatars, an art book, and exclusive wallpapers. Additionally, if you purchased Sega’s previous PC port of Bayonetta you will automatically receive a 25% discount off the $19.99 USD when preordering. However, you only have until the game’s release to secure the Digital Deluxe Edition via pre-ordering before it reverts to the Standard Edition.
John Clark, Senior Vice President of Commercial Publishing for SEGA Europe accompanied the announcement with the following statement, revealing that there is more to come from Sega in the PC space:
“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. There’s more to come from SEGA in this space, so stay tuned for further announcements.”
