During Gamescom 2020, Sony provided an extended look at Insomniac’s upcoming action/platformer Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

This demo starts in an alien city when Ratchet and Clank pop out of a dimensional rift. The duo seems to be hunting down Dr. Nefarious when they get attacked by a group of hostile aliens. Insomniac’s use of Sony’s PS5 tech is impressive, as alien NPCs ran around in the background while Ratchet fends off a series of hostile foes and the camera seamlessly transitions between action and cutscenes. One big new mechanic is Ratchet’s Rift tether, which a

llows Ratchet to grab orange dimensional rifts and pull them open – effectively teleporting Ratchet across the level. In addition to these rifts, Ratchet and Clank will also fall through purple rifts, which transport them to other worlds, and all of this happens nearly instantaneously, which is incredibly impressive.

During this demo, we also got a look at a few of Ratchet’s new weapons. The Shatterbomb is a classic glove bomb that tosses out grenades. The Burst pistol is a – like it sounds – a pistol with burst fire. If you like getting close and personal, you might like The Enforcer, which looks like an electric shotgun. Finally, the Topiary Sprinkler is a device that drops onto the battlefield and sprays water on foes. However, this water will freeze enemies in place and cause them to start growing plants all over their bodies.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart looks great, so we can’t wait to play more. Fortunately, it is set to release during the PS5’s launch window. Unfortunately, we don’t know when that is just yet, so don’t hold your breath.
