The latest Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart trailer was a little lighter on loading gimmicks than its previous gameplay reveals, but Insomniac Games snuck in some SSD magic which you may have missed. One GIF shared on the ResetEra forums shows Rivet rushing towards a crystal, which she hits in order to transition to another dimension.
The entire process, animation and all, lasts roughly a second – potentially even less. You can see for yourself how the entire world transitions below:
Reacting to the GIF, community director James Stevenson said that the transitions will “probably be slightly faster by the time you play it in June”, referring to further optimisations that the developer may make prior to launch. We know the PlayStation 5’s hardware has been discussed to death, but this kinda stuff never ceases to amaze us.
