In June during the PS5 Reveal Event, Sony announced Ratchet & Clank from Insomniac games as part of the games coming from its first-party studios. Today, Sony showcased a 7-minutes long extended gameplay on the PS5.
As part of Gamescom: Opening Night Live, a 4K extended gameplay of the game was showcased giving a much deeper look of the game on Sony’s next-gen console. Thanks to the PS5’s superfast SSD, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart brings vibrant gameplay and adds special effects.
In the gameplay demo, Dr. Nefarious returns as Ratchet & Clank’s archnemesis. Nefarious is deadlier as he now has the power to open portals to other dimensions thanks to a device called Dimensionator. Nefarious won’t have it easy as Ratchet and Clank team up once again to thwart his plans.
The game takes advantage of the PS5’s DualSense controller and its 3D tempest audio to give you an immersive experience. Ratchet & Clank gets new weapons such as the Burst Pistol, Topiary Sprinkler, Shatterbomb, and the Enforcer.
Ratchet and Clank will be released within the PS5 launch window which is this 2020 holiday season.
