Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart spotted in PS Plus Premium and Extra advertising

By Sean Lawson,

The iconic PlayStation Studios and PS5 exclusive game, Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart, may be joining Sony's new and revamped PS Plus subscription service for all Premium and Extra tiers.

The new PS Plus subscription service has finally launched worldwide, albeit, not without a few issues. With PS Plus users in the EU plagued by upgrade issues and a recent PS Plus games leak, there have been concerns amongst PS Plus Premium and Extra members. But, hopefully, if this little rumour turns out to be true, some of the PlayStation fanbase might just be appeased.

PlayStation Studios' Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart spotted on promotional image

An eagle-eyed fan over on Reddit spotted a promotional image on the PlayStation Store that would seem to suggest that the new PlayStation Studios and PS5 exclusive Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart could be coming to the new PlayStation Plus Premium games tier.

The image provided clearly shows a screenshot of Ratchet making a quick getaway in the most recent instalment of the Ratchet and Clank series. The image is situated on the PSN Store that is advertising for players to join the new PS Plus Premium subscription service, the big surprise here is that Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart isn't even on either of the PlayStation Plus Extra games list or the PS Plus Premium one.

With the game not being on either list at current, but being used in a promotional image advertising the service, it does look to be a clear indicator that the game will be coming to PS Plus Premium and Extra tiers in the near future. Obviously, you must take this with a grain of salt as recently an image was used of the PS Plus classic version of Dino Crisis to advertise the PS1 Classics catalogue on some PSN Stores. Speculation ran rife and people believed that Dino Crisis would be joining the list of PlayStation Classic games, however; the game has still not made an appearance.

I would love to see the recent PS5 exclusive Ratchet and Clank game make an appearance for all of us Premium and Extra tiered PS Plus subscribers. The game looks incredible from what I have seen in the trailers and a few gameplay videos that are out there. It has been on my backlog list of purchases to make for quite some time now, so if the game becomes free for me to download, how can I pass up an opportunity to try and get all the Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart trophies?

What do you guys make of this Ratchet and Clank rumour? Would you be as excited as me to see the game arrive on the new PS Plus subscription service? Sound off in the comments below!
