Sega has officially revealed that a Vanquish PC port is coming later this month, after a series of online teasers. It’ll arrive on May 25, with pre-orders open now via Steam.

It looks to be yet another impressive port from Sega, following in the steps of the Bayonetta PC version launched in the past few weeks. Vanquish will run at 60fps on PC but there’s the potential for unlocked frame rates so go crazy with 144fps if you’ve got the kit.

You can also run it in resolutions up to 4K with anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, SSAO lighting and scalable texture and shadow quality.

Although Vanquish was originally released on Xbox 360 and PS3 back in 2010, the game does now have support for keyboard and mouse if you want to get the full Vanquish PC experience.

“It was great to see the positive response from our community to the Bayonetta PC launch last month, and we are pleased to be able to announce Vanquish, another of our highly requested back catalogue titles,” said John Clar, Senior VP of Commercial Publishing at Sega Europe. “There’s more to come from Sega in this space, so stay tuned for further announcements.”

Sega teased the announcement in a series of tweets, which eventually culminated in the release date being spelled out across several days.

As true Vanquish fans will know, these images aren’t just any old blurs and images. The first, with the 2017 in the corner, was a show of the emblem of the Order of the Russian Star, which is the military group you fight against in the game’s story mode. Then in the next two teasers, you got a glimpse of hero Sam Gideon with the blur indicating Vanquish‘s iconic slide-boost mechanics.
