SEGA is excited to announce details of the exclusive Gamestop pre-order content for Vanquish, the epic sci-fi third-person action shooter from acclaimed game director Shinji Mikami. Customers who pre-order a copy of the game with Gamestop will have exclusive access to this three-weapon pack, available via Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Store.
Vanquish is set to be released on Oct. 19 in North America, with the pack being available the same day. 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.
Vanquish will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 both will be available at GameStop stores nationwide October 19, 2010.
