Vanquish demo coming soon

Sega today announced that it will release a demo for Vanquish on Aug. 31 in North America and across Europe on Sept. 1 and Australia on Sept. 2. The demo will be available on both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

The demo, dubbed Velocity Attack, allows players to try the game on either casual or normal difficult settings. You’ll take on the role of Sam, a US government agent kitted out with a futuristic ARS battle suit. Players will have a huge arsenal of weapons to dispose numerous enemy robots. You can also hijack “Walkers,” or use the suits’ unique Boost and AR mode to take down the robots. Players will even get a boss battle.

Look for the full game in North America on Oct. 19, Australia on Oct. 21 and in Europe on Oct. 22 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
