Last night at the gamescom 2020 Opening Night Live event, a host of next-generation games were shown-off. Insomniac's upcoming new instalment in the Ratchet and Clank universe was among those titles. The video game developer shared an extended gameplay demo of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, displaying the capabilities of the PlayStation 5's powerful SSD.
Speaking in an interview with Famitsu, Insomniac Games shared some more information about its upcoming PS5 exclusive today. Players will be able to play the new Ratchet and Clank title at 60fps.
Unfortunately, it seems that players will have to trade-off 4K resolution in exchange for 60fps. In what seems to be a bizarre decision for a next-gen game, Insomniac has decided to provide players with two options. They can either choose to play with a resolution of 1080p at 60fps or opt for 4K at 30fps.
Speaking to Famitsu, Mike Daily from Insomniac also commented on the newly introduced female Lombax. When asked, Daily said that more details about the new playable character will be revealed in the future.
A summary of the game was provided by Sony along with the gameplay demo yesterday. It reads:
"Ratchet and Clank find themselves at odds with their archnemesis, Dr. Nefarious. Only this time, he’s equipped with the dangerous Dimensionator, a device with the power to travel to other dimensions. The duo fights their way through an army of hired Goons in Megalopolis until something happens and they are ripped apart. Where are they now?"
Insomniac Games first announced Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart roughly two months back in June. The game is set to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive and is currently expected to launch with Sony's upcoming console this holiday.
