Insomniac Games’ latest entry in the Ratchet & Clank series, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is closer than you think and here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming installment:
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will release on June 11, 2021, as a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
The game was first revealed during the PlayStation 5 showcase on June 11, 2020.
Gameplay trailer :
In the announcement trailer, we see our heroes making their way to a prehistoric planet (possibly Sargasso), until Ratchet and Clank suddenly break through a dimensional rift. Clank notes that the “dimensions are collapsing on one another,” before a horde of robots follows who start firing on the pair.
Ratchet pilots an Anthropod to safety, only to be thrown through various different dimensions – resembling Megalopolis and Torren IV – ending at Ardolis where the Lombax takes on a group of pirates already fighting a kraken. There’s also another planet in the rift-jumping sequence where Ratchet rides a dragon at night through traffic – however, this does not seem to resemble any recognizable planets previously seen in the series.
The trailer ends as Clank is separated from Ratchet during an explosion on the pirate ship, resulting in the little robot falling through a rift, only to be welcomed by a female Lombax on a planet ruled by Dr. Nefarious.
The extended gameplay demo begins with a cutscene as Ratchet and Clank return to Megalopolis, noting that they still have time to stop Dr. Nefarious. A squad of Goon-4-Less attack, leading into the actual gameplay. The Lombax and his robot sidekick make their way through the city, disposing of enemies via a selection of new weapons and the former’s trusted OmniWrench.
Eventually facing off against Dr. Nefarious, Ratchet damages the former’s “Dimensionator” causing numerous rifts to materialize, which consequently transports creatures from other worlds into theirs. Ratchet and Clank pursue Nefarious until a rift appears and pushes them through the same dimension hopping sequence shown in the announcement trailer.
Fans of the beloved series will be able to play the title soon as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart releases in June!
