Vanquish is a fast-paced shooter developed by Platinum Games, the team most recently behind last January's Bayonetta. It feels akin to Gears of War, but with a jet-powered boost button to dash for cover; at least it did during last E3. Now, the dash in all of its glory will be in an upcoming playable demo on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network.
Announced last January, Vanquish takes place in the near-future with a heavily-saturated environment. The demo will serve as a prequel to the full game.
Enjoy the trailer after the jump and the demo will be available on August 31. The full game follows on October 19.
