Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gets new story details and gameplay trailer

By Heidi Nicholas,
Insomniac has blessed us with a new gameplay trailer for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, plus new story details and info on the Digital Deluxe Edition bonuses. Check out the gameplay trailer below:


First up, we found out that the new female Lombax is named Rivet. According to the PlayStation Blog post from Insomniac's creative director Marcus Smith, Rivet is "a Lombax resistance fighter from another dimension, where the evil Emperor Nefarious hunts all those who oppose him." We also caught a glimpse of new location Nefarious City, as well as "alternate-dimension twists" on Sargasso and Torren IV.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is still well over a month away from its June 11th release date, but we'll find out more about the game with PlayStation's next State of Play on April 29th at 2pm PT / 5pm ET, along with 15 minutes of gameplay.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
