Update: The new Ratchet & Clank patch which boosts the release's performance to 60 frames-per-second on PS5 is available to download now. The update weighs in at 87.17MB, so shouldn't take too long to pull depending on your Internet speed. Will you be checking the title out on Sony's next-gen console?
Original Story: Ratchet & Clank, the PlayStation 4 remake of the original game which is currently available free as part of Sony’s brilliant Play At Home promotion, is getting a 60 frames-per-second update on PlayStation 5 next month. The ever-industrious Insomniac Games – fresh from releasing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered last year, with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart on the way – confirmed the patch for the 2016 title on Twitter.
The original game – which is the best-selling entry in the series so far – ran at a smooth 30 frames-per-second on PS4, although it was upgraded to a higher resolution on PS4 Pro. It’s unclear whether there will be any other improvements beyond the framerate, but this is an extremely welcome addition, and will certainly encourage us to run through the release again. If you haven’t added the title to your library yet, you have a couple more days to do so – don’t miss out!
