Sony has confirmed the release date and price for the highly-anticipated Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart on PS5.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming on June 11. The game was pushed back beyond the PS5 launch window after debuting at a PlayStation event in June 2020. Last year, Insomniac also released an extended gameplay trailer at Gamescom.
Insomniac revealed more about the game’s story in a blog post:
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.
They also had this to say about the game’s cover art:
This beautiful new piece speaks to the game’s theme of duality. Ratchet and Clank are the personification of opposites forming a more powerful whole and this theme is expanded even more through alternate-dimension counterparts of characters and worlds.
The PS5 exclusive retails for the premium price of $69.99. Meanwhile, a Digital Deluxe Edition on the PlayStation Store retails for $79.99. It includes five additional armor sets, 20 Raritanium, a sticker pack for photo mode, a digital artbook, and a digital soundtrack.
