This looks so good. 

Insomniac Games have given us a tantalising new trailer for their upcoming PlayStation 5-exclusive game Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. This sneak peek finally reveals the name of Rift Apart’s mysterious female Lombax character: Rivet. Additionally, we get to see tons of new gameplay and story details involving the villainous Dr. Nefarious. 

Watch a trailer below:

Dr. Nefarious is opening up tears into different dimensions, and manages to escape into the one timeline where he ‘always wins’ instead of being constantly defeated by Ratchet and Clank. Ratchet loses Clank to this timeline, but the latter gets picked up by Rivet, a new Lombax character of the same species as Ratchet. She also has a wicked metal arm. Judging by the trailer, she’ll act as the game’s third playable character, able to travel through new dimensions and swing around on energy vines. 

Interestingly, the game’s also got a pretty great composer: Mark Mothersbaugh, who previously contributed to the soundtracks of old Crash Bandicoot, Sims and Jak and Daxter games. His band Devo is featured in the game’s trailer, with the song ‘Uncontrollable Urge’. Sony is also hosting a new State of Play episode that will show off more than 15 minutes of new gameplay from this game, along with teases of other upcoming indie titles. 

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will launch on 11 June, 2021 on PlayStation 5.
