Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will seemingly revisit an old idea from PlayStation 3 spin-off Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, as it will feature small sandbox levels for you to explore. Those of you who played the last-last-gen swansong will recall one level that you were free to traverse with a jetpack; a gameplay clip for the new PS5 title shows Ratchet sprinting through a giant desert with rocket boots.
The release will also see the return of the gladiator arena battles from previous versions, as well as interdimensional Clank puzzles. That’s not all: there’ll be Panzer Dragoon-style aerial combat sequences, Watch Dogs-esque spider-bot battles, and, of course, plenty of Gold Bolts to collect. Oh, and if that’s not enough, you’ll be able to document all of your discoveries in Photo Mode.
