, the latest third person shooter title from Platinum Games (the kind folks behind Bayonetta
), has been tagged with release dates for North America, Europe, and Japan.
The North American release date is October 19th
The European release date is October 22nd
The Japanese release date is October 21st
And, if you're one of those people who LOVE pre-order bonuses, you'll receive the "Tri-Weapon Pack". This has been confirmed in the US by GameStop, but it is still unknown which European retailers will be carrying this bonus.
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 armor. Finally, the Laser Cannon is a miniaturized space warship laser and is more powerful than any other weapon available for infantry.
Exciting, right? Maybe not the pre-order bonus, but the game looks sweet, right?
