‘Vanquish’ Now Available For PC

The high-octane third-person shooter from PlatinumGames is finally available for PC.

The fourth title from Bayonetta and NieR: Automata developer PlatinumGames, Vanquish released in 2010 exclusively for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Players took the reigns of Sam Gideon, a DARPA agent equipped with the Augmented Reaction Suit allowing him to slow time upon taking damage. Platinum’s previous titles introduced action fans to the studio’s wild gameplay motifs, but Vanquish and its “War Has Accelerated” marketing slogan took things into overdrive; to truly excel at the title, players must dash-slide and slow time to traverse across frantic environments and defeat bosses inspired by the Bullet Hell Shooter sub-genre of Shoot-Em-Ups.

Following the long-awaited release of Bayonetta just last month, Vanquish is finally available for PC gamers through Steam. The PC version has no limitations for frame-rate and resolution; if the hardware allows, the PC port of Vanquish will do 4K at 60fps and beyond. The system requirements are as follows courtesy of Steam:


  • OS: Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 (8.1) / 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i3 (2.9 GHz) or AMD equivalent
