Marcus Smith, Creative Director Insomniac Games posted a breakdown of the game on PlayStation’s blog page. Include in the breakdown was the following description for the game:
“Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a brand-new full-length adventure. When the evil Dr. Nefarious uses a device that can access alternate dimensions to find a galaxy where he always wins, Ratchet and Clank are separated. As they try to reunite, they will meet a new Lombax resistance fighter, explore new and familiar locales (but with new dimensional twists!), and wield a whole new arsenal of out of this world weapons.”
For those who have never played a Ratchet & Clank game before, Smith notes that this is a great one to start with as it is a completely standalone story.
“If you’ve never played a Ratchet & Clank game before, this is an excellent one to start with as the adventure is a stand-alone storyline, but longtime fans of the series will find deeper layers of connection to previous games.”
Pre-orders are available now, with both the Digital Standard Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition unlocking early pre-order bonuses which can be seen in the image above. The pre-order bonuses include:
- The Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003) with enhanced visuals
- Pixelizer weapon, the retro-blaster from Ratchet & Clank (2016) with enhanced visuals
The Standard Edition of the game will cost $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD while the Deluxe Edition will cost $79.99 USD / $99.99 CAD.
