Back in the day, Vanquish was a pretty innovative shooter for its time and now’s your chance to see why as it loses its price tag for both Xbox One – via backward compatibility – and Xbox 360 as part of the Games With Gold scheme for May. It’s surely worth a look, right?
Set in the not too distant future, Vanquish is an explosive shooter that places you in the role of a government agent, Sam, tasked with recapturing a space station that’s been taken over by Russian forces. This space station is home to the action whilst you fight your way through the open environments within, wielding a variety of powerful weapons and putting Sam’s martial art skills to the test. With the help of an advanced and enhanced battle suit, you’ll be able to evade attacks using boosters and the slow motion bullet time effect as the bullets and missiles come at you relentlessly.
Although usually priced at £14.99, the frenzied shooter that is Vanquish is currently free to purchase for Xbox Live Gold subscribers on the Microsoft Store. Acquiring it will allow you to play it on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
If you believe you can handle the pace of Vanquish then be sure to grab it before 31st May, which is when the price tag returns!
VANQUISH is a sci-fi shooter of epic proportions with a fast, fluid and frenetic combat system. It takes the shooter genre to the next level by adding unique offensive and defensive moves, and kinetic melee combat.
