Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart State of Play announced

Insomniac Games today announced a new State of Play focused on the PS5-exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

We also got confirmation that Mark Mothersbaugh is the game’s composer. Mothersbaugh is a co-founder of the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame nominated band DEVO (remember Whip It from the early ’80s?). His compositions have also appeared in the original three Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter games, as well as Thor Ragnarok.

In addition, Insomniac today confirmed the name of the game’s newest character, Rivet. Here are some more details on the new character:

Rivet is a Lombax resistance fighter from another dimension, where the evil Emperor Nefarious hunts all those who oppose him. You saw brand-new locations like Nefarious City, and alternate-dimension twists on old favorites like Sargasso and Torren IV along with a sneak-peak at some new weapons and gameplay mechanics.

How to watch the State of Play

The broadcast is set to air in just three days. You can tune in to the official PlayStation Twitch and YouTube channels this Thursday, April 29 at 5PM Eastern to see more than 15 minutes of fresh gameplay.
