Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart State Of Play Shows Off Open Areas, Mrs Zurkon And More

Mrs. Zurkon doesn’t cut coupons, she cuts enemies

As we inch closer to its June 11 release, developer Insomniac Games has started to lift the lid a little more on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the upcoming next entry in the much-loved platforming franchise.

After a short teaser video dropped earlier in the week alongside the exciting reveal of the name of its new female Lombax character, Rivet, a full, 15-minute State of Play presentation for the game aired in the early hours of this morning. The State of Play video gives us more insight into the narrative setup of the game as well as some of the new features and characters we can expect to see. It’s also drop-dead gorgeous to look at and should absolutely be viewed in 4K if you have the opportunity. Check it out:

Some of the tasty new morsels of information in the video include new traversal and platforming mechanics for Ratchet, levels with large open areas, Mrs. Zurkon running the in-game shop, combat and challenge arenas and of course those ludicrously-fast load times that see levels come in and out of existence in the blink of an eye.

We seriously can’t wait to get our hands on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart when it launches exclusively for PS5 on June 11, 2021. Stick with us here for more coverage in the lead-up.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
