Marcus Smith, Creative Director at Insomniac Games confirmed today that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will launch on June 11th, 2021 for the PlayStation 5.
All of us at Insomniac Games say thank you for your support of Ratchet & Clank across the last 19 years and four generations of PlayStation consoles. It’s been an incredible journey so far and we’re excited to share the next chapter with you soon.
Smith also announced pre-orders for the Standard and Deluxe Editions of the game. Pre-order bonuses will include the Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003) and the Pixelizer weapon, the retro-blaster from Ratchet & Clank (2016).
Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe edition will receive the following content: 5 additional armor sets, 20 Raritanium to get a head start on upgrading your weapons, a sticker pack to use in Ratchet & Clank’s first-ever photo mode, as well as a digital artbook and a digital soundtrack.
Early unlock bonuses will be exclusive for those who pre-order the game. Once the customer pre-orders the digital version of the game on the PlayStation Store, the items will be claimable automatically once the game is available.
Here is the official description of the game via Insomniac Games:
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.
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.
