Vanquish is coming to shores all over the world, fast. The first person shooter is being developed by Platinum Games and directed by legendary game director Shinji Mikami, who will all know is a master at what he does.
He’s hoping to “create something that has more appeal to it than simply being a shooter in a realistic world”. It’ll also be the faster shooter anywhere.
PlayStation: The Official Magazine had the world’s first exclusive look at the game, and while there, spoke to the game’s director and producer who shared their thoughts on what they hope to accomplish with Vanquish.
Note: Everything happens fast in Vanquish, faster than any other shooter the guys at PTOM have played, and at the same time the action unfolds in a manner that could only be described as “uniquely Platinum”, the mag continues.
“Being a Japanese company and having the sense of style that Platinum has, realism is not the top focus of Vanquish, but it definitely applies to a component, as it should with shooting games,” game producer Atsushi Inaba said.
“Rather than being very stealthy and taking cover every other moment, you have the boosting and melee combat along with faster, fluid tempo,” Inaba continued.
“That’s the big differentiator between this and other shooters out there.”
The game however, will boast no multiplayer as the team focus on “crafting the best possible single-player game”.
It’s a promising title and come this Thursday on Game Trailers TV, first in-game footage will be shown.
Vanquish could be out late this year, but for sure early next. It’s a title every shooter fan should keep an eye out for.
