Sega Confirms PC Launch for Vanquish Amidst Heavy Teasing

Vanquish will arrive on Steam with 4K support and unlocked frame rates along with other graphical upgrades

Sega is on a spree of teasing its upcoming Platinum Games title. Thanks to the early reference that we know that it’s Vanquish, and Sega is now offering more direct shots with the newly released screenshots.

The set of new screenshots also gives us a glimpse of the game’s antagonist. Interestingly, it has a reference to ‘5’ instead of ‘2017’ from the previous screenshot. Could it be the hint that the game would be arriving right this month?

We will have to wait to know more about that, but what has become clearer is that the teasers were all about a PC release for Vanquish. That was apprehensible, given the recent surprise roll out of Bayonetta on Steam. Here’s the announcement trailer of the game.

The game is also confirmed to be running at 60fps on PC and will feature unlocked frame rates with support for 4K resolution. Gamers can also expect the inclusion of anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting, scalable texture and shadow quality upgrades for the game that was initially released in 2010 for PS3 and Xbox One.

The game is also up now for pre-order on Steam. Users who have grabbed Bayonetta last month can get a discount of 25% until release. Trading cards and other Steam-specific features are also being made available with the PC entry.

The specifications required to run the game are also out, and you can check them below.
