Much like the first PC trailer, this one also runs at 60 FPS in 4K, demonstrating the full extent of the new version's visual enhancements compared to the console releases. The launch trailer clocks in a just under a minute, which is a stark contrast to the other high profile launch trailer released this week - Death Stranding's launch trailer was a whole eight minutes. We prefer short and to the point.

Even if you have already played the game on consoles, this trailer is bound to get you into the mood to experience Arthur Morgan's exciting, violent and tragic journey with the Van Der Linde gang, now with a number of enhancements as well as additional content.

The system specifications of the game were revealed a while ago, including a 150 GB space requirement. If that download seems daunting to you, we understand - not everyone has Google Fibre. Luckily, all fans who have pre-ordered the game can already pre-load the game, allowing you to jump into the action and heartbreak the instant the game goes live.
