Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart

Sony wasted no time in showcasing Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart’s gameplay, which starts off with Ratchet in a dimension where Dr. Nefarious has won. Now in Nefarious City, he looks for Clank who’s gone missing. Ratchet explores the city which is full of traffic and civilians, eventually coming across Ms. Zurkon who sells weapons and seemingly aids the Resistance.

Eventually, Ratchet sees Clank and Rivet escaping and follows them. It’s not long before trouble breaks out, and we see Ratchet utilizing new movement abilities like dashing and wall-running. Dashing can also be used to evade attacks while Rift Tethers are good for repositioning. Ratchet eventually battles the Nefarious Juggernaut and it’s not long before they’re shifted to another prehistoric-like dimension.

The gameplay then cuts to Rivet and Clank who run off to aid the former’s friends. Weapons like the Topiary Sprinkler are also showcased and the DualSense lets players know when players can be “trimmed.” There’s also the Shatterbomb for dealing immense damage. Pocket dimensions can also be explored. One of these sees Rivet acquiring a Speedle and racing through before returning to the original world and avoiding acid swamps.

Other features include Glitch Challenges, Dimensional Clank puzzles, Arena Challenges, aerial combat, Gold Bolts for collecting, armor sets and Photo Mode. Various accessibility options are also on offer which will be detailed more later. Brief shots of various other locations are also seen.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is out on June 11th for PS5.
