Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is an upcoming third-person shooter platformer game developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. After it was speculated that the game will be launched for PlayStation 4 as well, Insomniac Games confirmed yesterday that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
Insomniac Games confirmed it after they were asked by Twitter user Spidey889 if the game would be coming to PS4 as well. Insomniac kept their answer short, sweet, and to the point saying that the game would be a PS5 exclusive.
The game will feature ray-tracing and also support PlayStation 5's Dualsense controller
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is a singleplayer platformer where you play as Ratchet and travel across different worlds in multiple dimensions to stop an evil emperor from causing catastrophic dimensional collapse which will result in the extermination of all life in the universe. Ratchet is accompanied by his trusted robotic sidekick Clank who hangs on his back.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will feature some of the best graphics and gameplay with more areas to explore and a larger variety of weapons and enemies. It has also been confirmed that the game will support ray-tracing and will take advantage of the PlayStation 5's Dualsense controller.
The game has been designed in such a way that it significantly reduces loading times when you are jumping between different worlds. Developer Insomniac Games has also confirmed that Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will have a "performance mode" that will allow players to run the game at 4k resolution in 60 fps.
The exact release date for the game is not known but it is expected to release sometime along with the PS5 launch. PlayStation 5 launches next week on November 12.
