Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Launches June 11

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart arrives on PS5 June 11

All of us at Insomniac Games say thank you for your support of Ratchet & Clank across the last 19 years and four generations of PlayStation consoles. It’s been an incredible journey so far and we’re excited to share the next chapter with you soon.

How soon? We have been working hard to ensure that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, is a showpiece game and exclusive for your PlayStation 5 console. We’re thrilled to confirm that the game will launch on June 11th, 2021.

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.

We’re also here today to reveal new artwork for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. This beautiful new piece speaks to the game’s theme of duality. Ratchet and Clank are the personification of opposites forming a more powerful whole and this theme is expanded even more through alternate-dimension counterparts of characters and worlds.

Pre-orders start today too! Here’s a look at the digital content you can unlock early when you pre-order the Standard Edition or the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game:

That’s right, two fan-favorites will make their way into Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that players who pre-order will be able to unlock early. The Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003) is now updated with high-definition materials, lighting responses, and ray-traced reflections. Players who pre-order will also receive an early-unlock of the Pixelizer weapon, the retro-blaster from Ratchet & Clank (2016), also updated visually for the PS5 console.

The Digital Deluxe Edition is available on PlayStation Store to pre-order. In addition to the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart game, you’ll receive the following content: 5 additional armor sets, 20 Raritanium to get a head start on upgrading your weapons, a sticker pack to use in Ratchet & Clank’s first ever photo mode, as well as a digital artbook and a digital soundtrack.

Early unlock bonuses will only be available to players who pre-order the game. If you pre-order the digital version of the Standard Edition or the Digital Deluxe Edition on PlayStation Store, you will receive the early-unlock items automatically. If you purchase a physical or digital Standard Edition from a game retailer, you will need to check if they are offering the pre-order incentive.

And yes, we know you are asking for the new Lombax’s name. And it’s not fair that we put her in the art-work and aren’t telling you yet. Hang in there, you’ll be feeling rosy soon.

We’ll see you in the omniverse on June 11th, 2021.
