Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is now less than two months away! Available exclusively for the PlayStation 5 console on June 11, 2021, this all-new, fully-featured standalone Ratchet & Clank adventure will be a treat for returning fans and newcomers alike.
We’ve been working hard on the game and we know you’ve been craving an update. Let’s start with a new trailer, okay?
Yes! We finally revealed his name… you guessed it! Right?! Rivet is a Lombax resistance fighter from another dimension, where the evil Emperor Nefarious hunts down anyone who opposes him. You’ve seen new places like Nefarious City, and alternate dimension twists on old favorites like Sargasso and Torren IV, as well as a glimpse of new weapons and gameplay mechanics.
The song we picked for the trailer has special meaning beyond just being a great, exciting track. They belong to the Rock n ‘Roll Hall of Fame nominated group DEVO, one of my personal favorites, but, some would say, more importantly, the group that the incomparable Mark Mothersbaugh co-founded. I am delighted to announce that Mark is the composer of the Rift Apart soundtrack! Beyond his work in DEVO, you’ve probably heard his compositions over the years, whether in the three original games Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, as well as in animated series like Rugrats and the hit movie: Thor. Ragnarok. We are excited to collaborate with Mark and can’t wait for you to hear the incredible score he has created.
Here is a first listen!
Many of you have been waiting patiently to see the five armors that we include in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. These five looks for Ratchet and Rivet have been specially designed and developed for the Digital Deluxe Edition. Here is an overview:
The Imperial, Scavenger, Android, Rebel, and Hacker combinations all give you distinct cosmetic looks to play with and mix and match as you play and take photos in Ratchet & Clank’s very first photo mode.
