SEGA Europe has announced that Vanquish, the new sci-fi, third-person action shooter from acclaimed game director Shinji Mikami, will be released across Europe on October 22, 2010.

In addition to this news, customers who pre-order a copy of the game with selected stores will receive exclusive access to a three-weapon pack, available via Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Store on the same day.

The Tri-Weapon pack contains a small arsenal of experimental technology, made up of the Boost Machine Gun, Anti-Armor Pistol and Laser Cannon.

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 armour. Finally, the Laser Cannon is a miniaturised space warship laser and is more powerful than any other weapon available for infantry.
