Vanquish, the latest work of PlatinumGames and legendary Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, has been announced for a US retail release date of October 19th. Published by Sega, Vanquish is a sci-fi third-person shooter developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Pre-orders are now open at GameStop, with an exclusive Tri-Weapon DLC pack, including a Boost Machine Gun, Anti-Armor Pistol and Laser Cannon, waiting for those who choose to reserve a copy.

This triple threat of futuristic weaponry gives players an edge in surviving the frenetic and massive battles onboard the vast space station setting of VANQUISHâ„¢. 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.
