Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is almost here, and earlier this week Sony and Insomniac got the Internet all riled up with the reveal of their new female Lombax hero, Rivet. Well, today during their latest State of Play show, Sony went further, showing off over 15 minutes of new Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay!
The fresh footage shows off both Ratchet and Rivet in action. Ratchet explores the new cyberpunk-influenced stage Nefarious City (which might look better than that other Cyberpunk game). We see him try out his new wall-running and dash abilities as he searches for Clank. Meanwhile, Rivet explores a newly-reimagined version of the classic swampy planet, Sargasso. Of course, both Ratchet and Rivet do some rift hopping, with Ratchet even fighting a miniboss across dimensions.
In addition to everything mentioned above, Insomniac also promises Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will offer open-world areas, dimensional Clank puzzles, glitch challenges, arena challenges, aerial combat, pocket dimensions, a photo mode, and tons of accessibility options. But enough of my blabbing — check it all out for yourself, below.
