Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart arrives on PS5 in June

By Sean Carey,
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a PlayStation 5 exclusive launching on June 11th. Sony announced the game's release date and preorder info in a new PlayStation Blog.

Insomniac Games notes that if you haven't played a Ratchet & Clank game before, Rift Apart is an excellent one to start with as it has its own standalone storyline. Veterans of the series won't be missing out though as Ratchet & Clank's latest adventure also has deep connection to previous games in the franchise.

In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, evil Dr Nefarious has got his hands on a device that allows him to access alternate dimensions and find a galaxy where he always wins, separating Ratch and Clank in the process. As the pair try to reunite, they will meet a new Lombax resistance fighter, explore new and some familiar locations (with dimensional twists), and take on swaths of enemies with a new loadout of weapons.

Preorders have also gone live. If you preorder the standard edition, you'll get the Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and the Pixelizer retro-blaster from Ratchet & Clank. Those who preorder the Digitial Deluxe Edition will get both the Carbonox armor and the Pixelizer weapon plus five additional armor sets, 20 Raritanium to upgrade weapons with, a sticker pack to use in the game's photo mode, a digital artbook, and a digital soundtrack.
