Sony Interactive Entertainment recently announced PS4 versions for selected PS5 titles. But what are the chances that the action-platformer Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will find its way onto the PS4?
To the surprise of one or the other, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a few weeks ago PlayStation 4 implementations for projects initially confirmed exclusively for PlayStation 5.
As it was said, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon: Forbidden West, or the cooperative platformer Sackboy: A Big Adventure will find their way onto the PlayStation 4, among others. Consequently, the question arose whether the same could possibly apply to the action platformer Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart developed by Insomniac Games coming to PS4. A user asked the US studio without further ado and was confirmed that we were dealing with a PlayStation 5 exclusive project.

A PlayStation 4 implementation is therefore not planned. Since Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart makes extensive use of the PlayStation 5’s fast SSD and uses it, among other things, to implement the fast change between the worlds, this announcement should come as little surprise.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will release just in time for the local launch of the PlayStation 5 and will confront you with varied worlds that can be loaded from the PlayStation 5 in less than a second. According to official information, the new adventure of the likable Lombax is presented in dynamic 4K and HDR resolution.
There is also an optional performance mode on board, which allows you to play it in 60FPS while reducing the graphics.
