Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 5 console on June 11, 2021, this brand-new full-length standalone adventure will be a blast for returning fans and newcomers alike



"We’ve been hard at work on the game, and we know you’ve been craving an update. Let’s start with a new trailer, shall we?

Yes! We finally revealed her name… you guessed it! Right?! Rivet is a Lombax resistance fighter from another dimension, where the evil Emperor Nefarious hunts all those who oppose him.
You saw brand-new locations like Nefarious City, and alternate-dimension twists on old favorites like Sargasso and Torren IV along with a sneak-peak at some new weapons and gameplay mechanics.




The song we chose for the trailer has special meaning beyond just being a great, exciting track. It is from the (Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame nominated) band DEVO, a personal favorite of mine, but, some would say more importantly, the band that the incomparable Mark Mothersbaugh co-founded.
I’m excited to announce that Mark is the Composer of the Rift Apart soundtrack!
Beyond his work in DEVO, you’ve likely heard his compositions across the years whether it was in the original three Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter games, as well as animated series like Rugrats, and the blockbuster film: Thor Ragnarok.
We are so thrilled to be collaborating with Mark and cannot wait for you to hear the incredible score he’s come up with.



Many of you have been patiently waiting to see the five armor suits we’re including in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. These five looks for Ratchet and Rivet were designed and developed particularly for the Digital Deluxe Edition. Here’s a preview:
The Imperial, Scavenger, Android, Rebel, and Hacker suits all give you some distinct cosmetic looks to play with and mix-and-match as you play and take photos in Ratchet & Clank’s first ever photo mode.

Amazing gif (big thx to B benzy !):


Want to see more? We’re pleased to announce that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the focus of PlayStation’s next State of Play. And it’s just three days away.
Tune in to the PlayStation Twitch and YouTube channels this Thursday, April 29 at 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern to see more than 15 minutes of fresh gameplay."

Because this trailer is part of the marketing machine. I am kind of curious how the narrative is going to be after the State of Play. The last time R&C was shown people were melting and throwing shit to Xbox because Halo looked like a lego Skylanders game.

To be fair Halo Infinite wasn't even ready to be shown imo. The final product should look better.

And that is the lesson. People and sometimes PR Speak Bullshit says: "Show the games when they are ready" or "We are going to show games that are going to launch in the same year of their reveal"

Well...It´s nice to want things to happen but the PR/Marketing machine needs the cycle of hype. So yeah...
