Insomniac Games, via their Twitter, also noted that the patch is live now but of course would be available on Day One for download. Furthermore, the company made great use of Dualsense technology for the PlayStation 5 controller. In terms of the graphical technology implemented, the team stated that all three performance modes available use a dynamic base resolution which goes through a temporal injection to achieve a 4k image. It essentially applies the same technology as in Spiderman: Miles Morales on the PlayStation 5.

RayTracing and DLSS technology has been growing in popularity recently as it has been introduces into various games including No Man’s Sky. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart releases soon and propels players into an interdimensional adventure where they can jump into action-packed worlds complete with dazzling visuals and of course, a healthy arsenal of weapons to fend off any enemies. Besides the usual suspects, the game will introduces new allies as well as Rivet, a mysterious female Lombax from another dimension.
