After installing Dotnet45 the game launches perfectly. I was able to play with a decent frame rate on my GTX 1060 after turning down some of the settings like light shafts, bloom and anisotropic filtering. Its a pretty interesting game and very bloody. You will spend a lot of time figuring out how to remove every single blood stain, even from your own shoes.
