Insomniac Games’ Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart launched recently and has been doing fairly well. On top of a strong debut in the UK charts, becoming the second biggest launch in the series’ history for the region, it’s also earned heaps of accolades from critics. A new trailer has been released that highlights some of that praise – check it out below.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart tells a brand new story which sees Dr. Nefarious stealing the Dimensionator from the duo. When things go awry, Ratchet is separated from Clank and has to navigate a dimension where Nefarious has his own evil empire. Meanwhile, a new Lombax named Rivet is introduced and leads the resistance to try and stop Nefarious.
Along with several new planets and weapons, the title also introduces rifts – along with using them for short-range traversal, they also allow Ratchet and Clank to venture through several different dimensions within seconds. Pocket Dimensions are also created, leading to interesting side areas and challenges. For more details, check out our review for the game here.
