After the release of Bayonetta on Steam last month, Platinum Games have casually dropped hints that a port of their cult third-person sci-fi shooter Vanquish was on the way next, either via small updates to Bayonetta’s files or mysterious tweets. Today, though, it was made official: Vanquish will indeed be heading to Steam, and sooner than expected, as the new port comes out on May 25.
Accompanying this news is a launch trailer for the Steam version, seen below, which highlights that this version will have new graphical options that allow players to experience the game at the best possible quality. In addition, those that pre-order it on Steam will receive such goodies an an OST sampler and a digital art book. Owners of Bayonetta will also receive twenty-five percent off of their purchase of Vanquish, so fans of Platinum will clearly be rewarded even further when Sam Gideon’s action-packed adventures are exposed to a new audience next month.
