An extended look at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay

Just revealed, get your eyes on over seven minutes of new PS5 footage.

Hey everyone,

Today, we are excited to share a new extended look at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that we revealed as part of gamescom: Opening Night Live. We know many of you wanted a chance to see the gameplay at 4K*! This is a game that wouldn’t be possible without the power of PlayStation 5. We’re introducing more vibrant worlds than ever before, the speed of the SSD allows us to leap across the galaxy nearly instantly, and special effects like ray-tracing shows off the capabilities of the new console.

An extended look at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay

In this demo video, which takes place early in the game, Ratchet and Clank find themselves at odds with their archnemesis, Dr. Nefarious. Only this time, he’s equipped with the dangerous Dimensionator, a device with the power to open portals to other dimensions. As usual, Nefarious’s plan goes off the rails, and our beloved intergalactic duo go dimension hopping. Along the way they’ll encounter a cast of familiar and new faces.

What you won’t be able to experience by just watching the video of the demo is the amazing DualSense wireless controller and 3D audio. You’ll also see Ratchet’s brand-new arsenal on full display in this demo video, which includes new weapons such as the Burst Pistol, Topiary Sprinkler, Shatterbomb, and the Enforcer. Thanks to the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense wireless controller, we are able to make each weapon in Ratchet’s out-of-this-world arsenal feel unique and more powerful than ever. Take the Enforcer for example. This double barrel shotgun has multiple fire modes. Pull the trigger halfway and it fires a single shot. Squeeze passed the first stage and you will unload a double barrel blast instead!  And with the 3D audio, you will be fully immersed – hearing everything above, below and surrounding you. 

This is just a small taste of the game and we cannot wait for you to experience these features for yourself. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is its own stand-alone adventure and uniquely compelling story, featuring the trademark humor and wit the series is known for.  As we head towards the game’s upcoming release within the PS5 launch window, we’re excited to share more with you including our first ever playable Lombax not named Ratchet!

  • Release date ?
    Holiday 2020 ?

    • This s**** on anything Xbox has shown. The SSD is real. PS5 will squash all the teraflop bs with vastly superior games that both look and play better.

      If u ask me, PS5 has the more impressive tech. SSD, Ram, audio, DLSS integration, adaptive triggers, haptic sticks, VR. All of this is an advantage for PS5. Just look with your eyes. Xbox talks all about specs but for a decade PlayStation has had the better looking games. Nothing on SX looks impressive. PlayStation is about true innovation.

    • I have made $16498 in one month by telecommuting. At the point when I lost my office employment multi month prior, I was disturbed and an ineffective go after a quest for new employment I was secured this online position. what’s more, presently I am ready to win thousands from home. Everyone can carry out this responsibility and win more dollars online by follow this link…. clck.ru/Qi4sJ

  • Looks amazing. Insomniac is pretty much leading the PS5 lunch lineup with 2 very high profile games. Props to them!

  • I was not expecting launch window! Early 2021 would be great! Hoping for a collector’s edition too!

  • Looking forward to playing this. Day one!

  • Looks very amazing. Looking foward to it. Will this game have 60fps mode or locked at 30?

    • Apparently it will have a 60fps performance mode like Spiderman Miles Morales. They said it in a Famitsu interview today.

  • Unbelievable, this looks sooo good!! I’m very happy both Sony and Insomniac Keep revisiting the series. I’m day one on this, hopefully a real collectors edition this time??

  • soo hyped! will by my ps5 when this launches.

    please release a special edition.

  • Game looks great, but honestly I’m sick of Nefarious.

    Shoehorning him into the remake/movie of the first game was already too much. He’s overstayed his welcome. You need to move on from him.

  • I was blown away by the PS4 game and now Rift Apart has clearly topped that. Excellent job and easily my most anticipated PS5 game.

  • Awesome!

    • So clarification

  • I can’t wait for this and PS5! I hope I’m selected to preorder from PlayStation directly. I own all 4 playstations, psp and vita. 🤞🏻

  • Of course I’m excited for Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West, but Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is THE reason to get a PS5 right now! I really hope the humor comes back. I played Ratchet & Clank 2016 and enjoyed it. But I recently purchased and beat the original trilogy on my PS3 and they were hilarious! I hope this game brings back the humor that no other PlayStation series comes close to rivaling :)

  • Been a fan since the PS2 days. I have never missed Ratchet and Clank game not about to start now. Game looks great, have always loved their art style!

  • Looks amazing! But if we can also get a performance mode (60 fps) option similar to Spiderman MM it would be even more amazing! Even if that means 1080p with max TAA and running at a locked 60 fps it would still look great since I game on a gaming monitor so the pixel density is way higher than on a TV.
    Or 1440p 60 fps with RT off and slightly reduced particle count. I never understood why the push for 4K when in reality 1440p == 4K in terms of how much the human eye can see. Please Insomniac give us the performance mode option in Ratchet like you did with SMM!

  • WOW !!!! That was quite breath taking.

  • Thanks to Sony, I really want to buy this game!!!!😄😄😄

  • Yeah, yeah its all nice and shiny, props to Insomniac for such a great showcase BUT give us the preorder date and price please.

    It’s end of august and we dont know how the UI will look like, we dont have a teardown, price, availability, launch date, launch titles.

    Basically we dont know anything about the thing, save for the controller.

    I mean c’mon you are just messing around with your fans and it kinda sucks frankly !

    • I agree with this at this point. It really doesn’t matter what price either next gen Xbox will be. Its going to FLOP so hard no matter what.
      Sony should just do what they usually do and do their own thing.

  • I will purchase this game on first day

  • Please tell the release date in next state of play because every gamer is very excited for PlayStation 5 and me also and I want to buy this on first day

  • Watched the gameplay in 4K, absolutely stunning !
    Well done Insomniac, between Miles and Ratchet, you are carrying PS5 first few months :D

  • Looks pretty great. Love the games. Hope we don’t have to play the female protagonist instead of Rachet too much. The strong powerful female has been a trope since the 1960s. Getting kind of played out with game developers acting like it is exciting and new and was discovered last year.

    • “strong powerful female”??? Why are you assuming that? Can’t it just be that we may get to play as a female equal to Ratchet?

      You mention the 1960s yet it seems to be you that has discovered the last year on how to get annoyed or offended by politically charged presumptions.

  • The video is 4k 30fps. Is 30 fps the target or are you going to reach 60fps? Maybe you have different modes?

    • So clarification

  • Does anyone know if the PlayStation 5 will support 1440p monitors?

  • can’t believe 4k 30 is still the optimised norm on these new machines. i’ll probably wait for the ps5 pro, this machine just seems like a stepping stone still.

  • Wonderful Game!

  • El juego se mira muy bueno y nos confirma que casi no hay pantallas de carga y es unos de los pocos juegos que hay varios npc en el escenario aunque va a 30 fps se mira u juego de nueva generación

  • This looks awesome. I can’t wait to play this.

    P.S. Hoping for a Resistance game.

  • I said it before and I’ll say it again: No game has gotten me more excited since CTR: Nitro-Fueled was announced at the last Game Awards. Can’t wait to get a PS5 and this game when they come out; it’ll be worth the wait!

  • güzel dahada güzel olacak ps5

  • The Resistance Avatar gives me hope

  • UE5 tech demo gameplay is dead gorgeous running 1440p/2k @30fps with DLSS tech pushing it more than 4k looking.
    I thought was 4k when I was watching it on YouTube @ 1080p that time then rewatch on 4k.

    I’ll go for Ratchet game run the same as Unreal Engine 5 tech demo gameplay anytime than native 4k.

    2k with DLSS @ 60-120 FPS is way next gen than native 4k in comparison

    Also I’ll buy PS5 tech @ $700 to be the first Pre-order group with Sony PS5 T-shirt, balloons, and Sony credit card so more gamers can buy more and pay this for 1-2 years 0% interest program like bestbuy credit card.

    It would be nice if PS5 pro can swap upgrade gpu, cpu, and other like PC. PS5 is the real revolutionary tech with custom ssd that PC can’t match to now even Nvidia 3000 series power will bottleneck choke . This ssd is new innovation from Sony that PC master race didn’t figure out. It will change our gaming future and PC will follow this formulation chemistry of Sony SSD thanks to Mark Cerny detail presentation. Xbox velocity or Nvidia 3000s can’t match the SSD Speed.
