Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be released in June 2021
New artwork and pre-order details also revealed for Insomniac’s game
The Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart release date is June 11, 2021, Sony has confirmed.
The publisher also revealed new artwork for the PS5 exclusive and opened pre-orders on Thursday.
The standard version of the game costs $69.99/£69.99 and the Digital Deluxe Edition is $79.99/£79.99.
The Digital Deluxe Edition 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.
Insomniac Games creative director Marcus Smith told 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 re-unite, 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, this is an excellent one to start with as the adventure is a stand-alone storyline, but longtime fans of the series will find deeper layers of connection to previous games.”
