We finally have a release date for one of the most highly-anticipated PS5 exclusives. Insomniac Games has announced that Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is launching exclusively for the PS5 on 11 June 2021.
According to PlayStation Blog, 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 reunite, 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.
If you’ve never played a Ratchet & Clank game before, Insomniac Games said that this is an excellent one to start with as the story is considered standalone, but longtime fans of the series will find deeper layers of connection to previous games.
