Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review – PlayStation 5 is off to a strong start

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart review – PlayStation 5 is off to a strong start

It’s been a while since we last heard from our buddies Ratchet and Clank. Not only has it been five years since the last Ratchet & Clank game, titled simply Ratchet & Clank, but that one was only a reimagining of the original game from 2002. To find the last proper Ratchet & Clank release, you have to go back all the way back to 2013 and the release of Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.

After some time off, the pair are back to usher in the PS5 era along with some new friends in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

Just a couple of days ago, Insomniac Games announced that Ratchet & Clank (2016) would be getting a next-gen PS5 upgrade. When Insomniac made that announcement, it said it was targeting the upgrade's release for April, but it turns out the company was pretty far off the mark with that release target.

What is going on with this PS5 Spider-Man game?

In the opening minutes of its PlayStation 5 event yesterday, Sony and Insomniac Games announced Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It wasn't immediately clear what Spider-Man: Miles Morales was, and the lone teaser trailer Sony and Insomniac showed off didn't do anything to clear things up. Is it a sequel to Spider-Man? A standalone expansion? A remaster of Spider-Man for PS5 that included new content centered on Miles Morales? It was impossible to say from that teaser trailer alone.
