During Gamescom 2020, we got an extended look at gameplay from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. This gameplay gave us an even better look at the mechanics introduced in Sony’s own Future of Gaming event. The game blends the iconic shoot-’em-up style of the Ratchet & Clank series with a new rift feature, allowing the player to travel across levels instantly. You can even go to entirely new worlds in the blink of an eye, as the game uses the PS5’s SSD to completely get rid of loading screens.
We also got some info about the release of the game. While there has so far been no mention of a specific release date, the Gamescom showcase confirmed that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be available during the PS5 launch window, which means fans will be able to dig into this game later this year. That’s another game added to Sony’s solid selection of PS5 launch titles.
