Meet Rivet, the mysterious new protagonist in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

New gameplay and story details, plus your first peek at the soundtrack.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is now less than two months away! Coming exclusively to the PlayStation 5 console on June 11, 2021, this brand-new full-length standalone Ratchet & Clank adventure will be a blast for returning fans and newcomers alike.

We’ve been hard at work on the game, and we know you’ve been craving an update. Let’s start with a new trailer, shall we?

Meet Rivet, the mysterious new protagonist in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Yes! We finally revealed her name… you guessed it! Right?! 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.

The song we chose for the trailer has special meaning beyond just being a great, exciting track. It is from the (Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame nominated) band DEVO, a personal favorite of mine, but, some would say more importantly, the band that the incomparable Mark Mothersbaugh co-founded. I’m excited to announce that Mark is the Composer of the Rift Apart soundtrack! Beyond his work in DEVO, you’ve likely heard his compositions across the years whether it was in the original three Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter games, as well as animated series like Rugrats, and the blockbuster film: Thor Ragnarok. We are so thrilled to be collaborating with Mark and cannot wait for you to hear the incredible score he’s come up with.

Here is an early listen!

Many of you have been patiently waiting to see the five armor suits we’re including in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. These five looks for Ratchet and Rivet were designed and developed particularly for the  Digital Deluxe Edition. Here’s a preview:

The Imperial, Scavenger, Android, Rebel, and Hacker suits all give you some distinct cosmetic looks to play with and mix-and-match as you play and take photos in Ratchet & Clank’s first ever photo mode.

Want to see more? We’re pleased to announce that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the focus of PlayStation’s next State of Play. And it’s just three days away.
