Sony’s next big game is Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Sony showed the video off at its latest PlayStation State of Play event on April 29.

It takes place after the events of 2016’s Ratchet & Clank.

The game uses a third-person shooter format, and has a full-length campaign.

Sony announced it in June last year during the PS5 reveal event.

The game is available in June this year

Ratchet & Clank are trying to stop big baddie Doctor Nefarious from destroying all life throughout the universe.

This takes the pair across multiple dimensions and worlds, including visiting a vast futuristic metropolis – as seen in the latest gameplay trailer.

There’s a new instant zone-travel feature that lets players zip between different areas.

And unsurprisingly, the game supports haptic feedback courtesy of the PS5’s DualSense controller.

Different guns will make use of the adaptive triggers on the console in varying ways.

This is actually the sixteenth entry to the Ratchet & Clank series.

It kicked off way back in 2002 on the PlayStation 2, and has spanned multiple console generations.

R&C games have been released on the PS2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita, PS4 and PS5.

And the franchise has also been released on iOS and Android devices.

The game is published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, hence the link to PlayStation consoles.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is out on June 11, 2021.
