Insomniac Reveals Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Insomniac has been busy. Not only did they reveal a new standalone Spider-Man expansion (Spider-Man: Miles Morales), they also had a Ratchet & Clank hidden in their collective sleeves.

Called Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, this new adventure has our heroes battling all sorts of monsters. Big guns, explosives, melee combat with a large wrench – the basics are here. That said, a Rift Apart has a new gimmick. Namely, rifts…

Players will be able to seamlessly travel through these rifts or portals in order to get the drop on foes. The same tactics will most likely be used against them as well; the trailer shows enemies dropping in from another dimension while Ratchet is exploring his surroundings.

Cool gameplay mechanics aside, the biggest reveal was the presence of another Lombax. Ratchet always thought he was the last of his kind. Apparently, that’s no longer the case.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a direct sequel to the Ratchet & Clank remake (released in 2016). Based on what we’ve seen, it’ll take our heroes to new places to meet new allies and foes. Beyond that…we have no idea what’s going on. That said, we’re looking forward to learning more about Rift Apart as things progress.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be released exclusively for the PS5. Be sure to check back here for more gaming-based news.
