Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was announced for the upcoming next-gen console at Sony’s PlayStation 5 event, and now the iconic game is featured in a new gameplay video.
More precisely, more gameplay of the upcoming PS5 platformer was just shown during the Opening Night Live Show. Geoff Keighley had already announced on his Twitter account recently that another presentation of the title would come this week. Now the dynamic game is back in action and gives us another glimpse into the upcoming PlayStation 5 game from Insomniac Games.
This time an expanded version of the section that Sony had already presented at its PlayStation 5 event was shown. Accordingly, there were no new areas of the game to be seen, but more of Lombax Ratchet, who opposes hostile aliens with various shootings. In order to defend himself against his opponents, the hero naturally also uses new weapons that should feel better than ever thanks to the advantages of the DualSense controller.
At the end of the seven-minute-long video, Ratchet and Clank were thrown through several dimensions again, with the switch between these different worlds being particularly seamless thanks to the PlayStation 5 hardware, as Insomniac confirmed two months ago. In the final moments of the section, Clank is separated from his friend and meets a Lombax lady whom we already know from the first trailer of the PS5 game.
After the short presentation, Geoff Keighley spoke to Creative Director Marcus Smith and Game Director Mike Daly about the latest work from Insomniac Games. As they confirmed again, there will be no loading times in this new Ratchet & Clank game. With regard to further details on the story of the title, however, both were reserved, because the name of the female Lombax, who will be a playable character, has not yet been revealed.
Finally, it was confirmed that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart would be available in stores during the “launch period” of the PlayStation 5 release for the new Sony console. However, they did not give an exact release date.
