Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart: The First Three Hours – New Gameplay Today

by Alex Stadnik on Jun 10, 2021 at 07:00 AM


I have good news for you, PlayStation fans. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is almost here and it's fantastic. The bad news is that it's not quite out yet for everyone, which may make things worse. The remedy for all this unpleasant waiting and gnawing anticipation? Watching the first few hours of Insomniac's gorgeous new platforming adventure with your friends at Game Informer, of course!

That's right, we're going to be kicking off your morning with a healthy dose of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart! We'll be starting with a fresh save to keep you from any late-game spoilers so feel free to pop in and out at your leisure.

For those needing a reminder, Rift Apart takes place after the events of Into The Nexus and finds our titular heroes second-guessing their abilities in the midst of a parade honoring their past achievements. As a way to cheer his friend up, Clank offers Ratchet the Dimensionator, a tool capable of sending the Lombax across dimensions to find his long-lost family. The only problem? Dr. Nefarious has other plans for Clank's contraption and ruptures the very fabric of reality in the process. When the two protagonists are separated, newcomer Rivet swoops in to save Clank and work with her fellow Lombax to try and prevent the dimensions from collapsing!

Excited for more from Ratchet & Clank ahead of its June 11 release date? Be sure to check out our chat with Insomniac about its latest title, a New Gameplay Today mostly focused on Rivet, and a look at some of the wild cameos that make an appearance later in the game.
