Everyone’s favourite Lombax and robot duo will return to action on PS5, and this time they look set to travel to different dimensions.
Revealed during last night’s PS5 showcase event, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will release on the PlayStation 5. Not only was this huge announcement enough to build up excitement, but the gameplay trailer may well have been enough to take us to another dimension.
As Clank clarifies: “It appears the dimensions are collapsing on one another.” Throughout the whole trailer we are introduced to some nostalgic platforming and shooting action from the dynamic duo. We’re also taken on an inter-dimensional journey through the game’s gorgeous settings of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart.
Ratchet and Clank look to be at the top of their game, and they truly need to be. From speeding through a mysterious land, to fighting waves upon waves of oncoming enemies, and even accidentally boarding some type of pirate ship, Ratchet and Clank have a lot on their plates.
The duo are certainly up to the task, of course. If the trailer is anything to go by, Rift Apart looks set to be the duo’s most excellent adventure yet. The action looks frantic, and the pace looks as challenging as ever. Ratchet leaped and flipped out of danger and retaliated in kind with a dynamic range of classic weapons.
But we’re all left with one pressing question: who was the female Lombax at the end of the trailer? No doubt she will play a big role in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and we can’t wait to see more of her character.
Perhaps most impressive, though, was how populated each location looked. Not only were there countless enemies, but many onlookers and civilians. It makes the world of Ratchet & Clank look more alive and dynamic than ever. We can’t wait to explore it.
There’s no set release date just yet for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. We’ll have more information on the game as it becomes available.
