It's official: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will launch exclusively on PlayStation 5 on 11th June 2021. Confirmed in the pre-order trailer embedded above, the second PS5 title from Insomniac Games will arrive halfway through 2021 instead of the previously stated launch window. The game will be available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store starting today, and if you choose to commit cash before release, you'll get your hands on a couple of bouses.
Those are the Carbonox armour from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and the retro-blaster from the 2016 reboot Ratchet & Clank. The former has been updated "with high-definition materials, lighting responses, and ray-traced reflections". The digital deluxe edition, meanwhile, also includes five more armour sets, a Photo Mode sticker pack, 20 Raritanium (an in-game upgrade material), a digital soundtrack, and digital art book. Over on the PlayStation Blog, Sony teases more news is coming soon, including the name of the mysterious female Lombax.
"Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a brand-new full-length adventure. When the evil Dr. Nefarious uses a device that can access alternate dimensions to find a galaxy where he always wins, Ratchet and Clank are separated. As they try to re-unite, they will meet a new Lombax resistance fighter, explore new and familiar locales (but with new dimensional twists!), and wield a whole new arsenal of out of this world weapons."
