Bayonetta free with Vanquish pre-order

Play.com exclusive.

If you pre-order upcoming action game Vanquish you'll get Japanese developer PlatinumGames' other game Bayonetta free – but only at Play.com.

Play.com said the impressive deal is available for a limited time only. The online shop will bung in a lenticular sleeve, too.

A PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace demo is out now, for those of you sitting on the fence. Publisher SEGA will release a second demo in the West after the game's 22nd October release.

Vanquish is from Resident Evil man Shinji Mikami. It's a third-person cover shooter set in the near future when the world's resources are almost depleted.

The Russians and US are violently disputing ownership of a space station designed to draw energy from the sun, and you play a dude in a lightweight mech suit sent in to separate the men from the armoured soldiers with rechargeable shields.

Christian Donlan went hands-on in August.

Bayonetta features a sultry witch and is considered the spiritual successor to the Devil May Cry series. Simon Parkin reviewed in November last year. Hint: it's well good.
