Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is ready for release, here's what you've been waiting for!
The dynamic duo is back after a long sabbatical and thankfully they are all set for a new, interdimensional adventure! In Rift Apart, they once again have to deal with the nasty Dr. Nefarious who intends to wipe out all organic life. And not only this dimension, but he wants to do it in every dimension possible!
In this intergalactic spectacle, you'll travel through dimensional fissures and warp from side to side while taking out evil robots and other space-scumbags. It’s also possible to visit different planets, some which you have already discovered in the previous Ratchet & Clank games. In addition, there are a lot more planets and alternative dimensions to explore. One thing is for sure, there is plenty to do and see in Rift Apart!
The story in short is as follows: dimensional chaos is about to destroy all life in this and alternate universes. Not one but two(!) Lombaxes this time, accompanied by everyone’s favorite sidekick robot, have to take on an evil emperor to save their, and any other universe! Thrills and challenges are lurking behind every corner!
That one Lombax we mentioned is of course Ratchet, and that cute robot is his buddy Clank. But in Rift Apart, a third Lombax called Rivet is introduced. This feisty rebel fighter is also a playable character who will join in the fight against Dr. Nefarius to stop the destruction of the universe!
The arrival of a second playable Lorax fueled some speculation about a possible co-op feature in Rift Apart. This is unfortunately not the case, because this Ratchet & Clank edition will also remain a single-player. Although that’s too bad, it should definitely not spoil the fun, because there is a lot more to experience in Rift Apart, even if you’re on your own!
Of course, you’ll never be completely on your own. Because Ratchet & Clank wouldn’t be Ratchet & Clank without some big guns! As always, there are plenty of weapons and gadgets that will assist you on your path to victory! The Ratchet & Clank series is known for the array of exotic weapons to choose from. Fortunately, this is no different in Rift Apart. You will soon discover the Burst Pistol and the Topiary Sprinkler as a new addition to the weapon arsenal. And you'll probably also be eager to use the brand new Shatterbomb. It's going to be another explosive battle against a multidimensional robot plague in this colorful new game. We’re hyped!
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is developed by Insomniac Games and released exclusively by Sony. This game will only be available to enjoy on the PlayStation 5. Are you one of the (few) owners of this console? Then something astonishingly beautiful awaits you! This is a (still rare) next-gen game, which was made exclusively for the PS5, whereas many other PS5 games are updated remakes of their PS4 predecessors. But not this one! This gem is literally MADE for the PS5 features. And it shows!
It's amazing to experience how this game comes to life in your hands with the DualSense controller, and on your screen thanks to the stunning visual effects. With 60 FPS, super dynamic 4K resolution and HDR. The lightning-fast loading capacity of the PS5 is a very nice bonus and all the new functions that the PlayStation 5 has to offer are optimally engaged to make Rift Apart an eye-catching spectacle. Every dimension crackles from your screen which guarantees a unique, electrifying and breathtaking gaming experience.
Unfortunately for all gamers who do not (yet) own a PlayStation 5, this game will not be released on the PS4 for the time being. It is expected that the incomparable visual quality of Ratchet & Clank will be an extra incentive to buy this console as soon as possible.
The game has a playing time of about 10 hours, which will without a doubt be 10 of the most explosive, adventurous and memorable hours of your life. Have you already (pre)ordered it? We can’t wait to start this new adventure with our old pals!
