Sony brought two of its closest friends to Gamescom, providing fans with a look at more than seven minutes’ worth of gameplay from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
In this demo video, which takes place early in the game, Ratchet and Clank find themselves at odds with their archnemesis, Dr. Nefarious. Only this time, he’s equipped with the dangerous Dimensionator, a device with the power to open portals to other dimensions. As usual, Nefarious’s plan goes off the rails, and our beloved intergalactic duo go dimension hopping. Along the way they’ll encounter a cast of familiar and new faces.
What you won’t be able to experience by just watching the video of the demo is the amazing DualSense wireless controller and 3D audio. You’ll also see Ratchet’s brand-new arsenal on full display in this demo video, which includes new weapons such as the Burst Pistol, Topiary Sprinkler, Shatterbomb, and the Enforcer. Thanks to the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense wireless controller, we are able to make each weapon in Ratchet’s out-of-this-world arsenal feel unique and more powerful than ever. Take the Enforcer for example. This double barrel shotgun has multiple fire modes. Pull the trigger halfway and it fires a single shot. Squeeze passed the first stage and you will unload a double barrel blast instead! And with the 3D audio, you will be fully immersed – hearing everything above, below and surrounding you.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is in the works for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 console.
