“Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart” has to be releasing. Like many games you can think of, they were delayed from being released, but in February, the official release date was announced. We are in for a treat coming June 11. This is a “PS5 (PlayStation 5) exclusive game. 

With that paragraph being read, “Ratchet & Clank” (2016) is now playable on 60 FPS on PS5 (PlayStation 5). 

In slang, many hip hop fans knows exactly what the word “ratchet” means. Ratchet refers to an uncouth woman. Well, I’ll leave it up to you to research and see if “Ratchet” the video game or “ratchet,” the slang word came first. You may never look at a “Ratchet” game the same way again. 

In all seriousness, “Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart” should be a pretty addicting, third-person shooter game. Anyone who managed to collect the entire “Ratchet” series can tell you all about it, if they beat all of the games.

Gameplay:

The setting is science fiction where Ratchet (is a feline humanoid, mechanic known in the Lombax species). Clank is a Zoni robot known for assisting Ratchet to protect the galaxy. Confirmed at “Gamecom Opening Night  Live 2020,” “Rift Apart” is not a sequel to the 2016 reboot, but “Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus” from Playstation 3 back in 2013.

Ratchet has enhanced strength, enhanced durability, enhanced stamina, high acrobatic skills, and many more skills. The odds are, if you are not a true gamer, you either remember this character flipping around in a “Ratchet & Clank” video game and/or are reminded of “Banjo-Kazooie.” If you are a gamer at heart, hand over your money. 

For some reason, when you think about “Ratchet & Clank,” it is hard not to think about other games like “Spyro.” If you remember that purple dragon, that is likely Spyro. Well, “Ratchet &  Clank” and “Spyro” are both developed by “Insomniac Games.”

It was 2002 when the first “Ratchet & Clank” was released. The developer of “Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart,” “Insomniac Games” replied to a comment on “Twitter,” stating, “We know you’re antsy for more news and there are plans in place right now for that. You’ll be pleased with what we have to share, just hang tight.”
