A new, sometimes annoying, trend lately is pre-order bonuses, in which Vanquish is now taking part. “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.”
“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 VANQUISHTM. 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.”
Now, I’m actually fine with this. Not only are they going to be available during launch day on XBL/PSN, they’re also just weapons. I’ve seen many games (Battlefield, Army of Two: The 40th Day) put game modes as their pre-order bonus but if it’s just weapons, that’s fair. You get a thumbs up from me, Sega.
Vanquish will be launching on your PS3 and X360 on October 19th, 2010.
