Vanquish dated for US, UK

SEGA has announced that Platinum Games’ Vanquish will be hitting North American retailers on October 19, 2010. UK gamers get it on October 22.

Punters who pre-order the game at GameStop will be able to bag themselves an array of exclusive goodies, including the Boost Machinegun, the Anti Armor Pistol and the Laser Cannon downloads. A similar incentive is also available for UK gamers.

Masterminded by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, Vanquish takes the form of an outer-space shooter set during an undisclosed period of time in the near future, where gamers control a U.S. agent kitted out in the latest high-tech gear tasked with recapturing a Russian-controlled space station.

Vanquish is due out on PS3 and 360.
