Ratchet & Clank Is Absolutely Free Right Now

What could be better than a free Ratchet & Clank game?

Now we think about it, being able to buy next-gen consoles without having to be up at 3.00AM would be nice. Oh, and we’d love to see Silent Hills finally see the light of day. But, still, we’re not going to turn our noses up at the chance to get and keep PS4/PS5 platformer Ratchet & Clank absolutely free.

It’s all part of Playstation At Home (not to be confused with the now defunct Playstation Home), and initiative designed to support people during the lockdown. You don’t need Playstation Plus, as long as you’ve got a PS4 and PS5 you can just jump on the Playstation store and download the game for free. You should then be able to re-download it whenever you want.

Ratchet & Clank is a re-imagining of previous PS2 and PS3 titles, featuring a big-eared feline humanoid and his robotic companion as they tangle with various nefarious foes. We called it an “accomplished reimagining one of the highlights of the PS4’s catalogue” and, through the console’s backwards compatbility feature, Playstation 5 owners can get their hands on it too.

So with a sequel waiting in the wings and the game costing a grand total of 0 pounds, there’s no better time to play Ratchet & Clank.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
