The Spider-Man studio revealed plans for the update via Twitter on Monday.
“Ratchet & Clank (2016) will be playable in 60 FPS on PS5 after a new update in April!” it said.
Asked exactly when the 60fps update will be released for PS5, Insomniac replied: “sooner than you think April.”
Additionally, it won’t introduce any DualSense controller features. “You’ll have to play Rift Apart for that”, Insomniac said.
Finally, in response to a couple of requests, Insomniac said it’s “unable” to unlock the Bouncer weapon, which was a pre-order bonus for the PS4 game, for all players.
PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is scheduled for release on June 11, 2021. The standard version of the game costs $69.99 / £69.99 and the Digital Deluxe Edition is priced at $79.99 / £79.99.
The latter comes with the base game plus five additional armour sets, 20 Raritanium to put towards upgrading weapons, a sticker pack to use in the franchise’s first ever photo mode, a digital artbook and a digital soundtrack.
Pre-order customers will receive two bonuses which won’t be made available to other players: visually updated versions of the Carbonox armor from 2003’s Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and the retro-blaster Pixelizer from 2016’s Ratchet & Clank.
Customers who pre-order the game from the PlayStation Store will automatically receive these bonuses. Customers who purchase the title from elsewhere will need to check if the store is offering the pre-order incentive or not.
