“The story of VANQUISH is set in the near future. Russia and the United States are vying for ownership of the worlds fast-depleting energy resources and the US has constructed a space station in order to harness energy from the sun. Russian forces capture this space station and divert its harvested solar energy into a blast wave that destroys San Francisco, aiming to force the US into a total and unconditional surrender. In response, the US tasks its armed forces with recapturing the space station before the Russians can annihilate their next target – New York.”
Players take the role of Sam, a government agent armed with martial arts skills and an array of futuristic weapons.
