This is not a drill. The PS5 is releasing in just three short days!

After months of build-up, PlayStation’s next-gen offering is tantalisingly close. To celebrate the impending launch of the PS5, Sony has released a very exciting new launch trailer that offers a glimpse at some of their top upcoming exclusives. Alongside the footage of the games, the trailer reveals some interesting information about the launch windows of four of the PS5’s biggest titles.

The launch trailer was released via the official PlayStation YouTube Channel and Twitter accounts and shows off six of the biggest exclusives, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls Remake and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.

While a lot of the footage within the trailer has been seen before across various events, including The Future of Gaming event and other State of Play showcases, Sony has offered some insight into the release windows of a few of the games that don’t currently have firm dates.

The video first confirms that the first half of next year is likely to be stacked with Sony first-party exclusives. While we already expected Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart was coming in the first half of 2021, the launch trailer confirms that Housemarque’s sci-fi horror shooter, Returnal is due to drop in that same period. The trailer also confirms the recent rumours that Gran Turismo 7 is due to drop in H1.

The final date to come out of the trailer was for Horizon Forbidden West. The game was originally revealed during The Future of Gaming showcase and is still scheduled to come out next year. Fans will have to wait a little longer for that one, however, as that’s anticipated to drop in the latter half of 2021.

With next-gen just around the corner, be sure to stay tuned to DualShockers for all of the latest news, reviews and information on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S.
