Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Release Date Announced In New Trailer

The newest game in the Ratchet & Clank series has finally got a release date, and a brand new trailer to go with it.

Fans have been clamoring to find out when they're able to get their hands on the new Ratchet & Clank title.

The game boasts incredible next-gen technology to wipe out load-times almost entirely and has been high on the list of most highly-anticipated PS5 games.

The game is a PS5 exclusive however, so it won't be joining the long list of cross-gen compatible PS5 games.

Well, the wait is almost over. The release date has been announced, and it packs a new trailer to go with it.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Trailer & Release Date

The trailer for the latest Ratchet and Clank game was posted moments ago on the official PlayStation Twitter page. It features a new trailer with some exciting new gameplay footage.

The footage sees the universe-hopping madness that fans have come to expect of the sequel, utilizing the next-gen capabilities of the PS5. We also get another look at the new female Lombax character.

The trailer looks fantastic, but even more exciting is the release date to go with it. Playstation's tweet details that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart arrives on PS5 on June 11.

That means we'll be hopping around worlds before the summer is up. It's incredibly exciting for fans of the adventure platformer series, and quite frankly, the whole PlayStation player base.

We've got a while to wait, but now at least you have time to get your hands on a PS5 yourself. However, a major PS5 restock has been delayed in the UK until later this week. Thankfully though, some scalpers are finally being put out of business.

The tweet then links to the details required to pre-order the game. Pre-ordering the game will bag you some extra in-game goodies, like the Carbonox Armor and the Pixeliser weapon.

The Pixeliser is a fan-favorite weapon from the last game, the rebooted Ratchet & Clank. Plus, the Carbonox Armor is straight out of 2003's Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando.

You can also pick up the digital deluxe edition of the game, which features those items, plus;

  • Five Armor Sets
  • A Photo Mode Sticker Pack
  • 20 Raritanium
  • The Digital Soundtrack, and;
  • A Digital Art Book

The page also details a little about the game's story.

It is a brand new full-length adventure, that sees the evil Dr. Nefarious using a device that accesses different dimensions, in order to find a dimension in which his schemes always pan out. When doing so, Ratchet and Clank are separated in the chaos.

As they attempt to reunite, they meet the new Lombax character, a resistance fighter. Take control of Ratchet & Clank as they try to find their way back to each other, and to stop the evil doctor's plans.

The game looks incredibly exciting, and we can't wait to jump in.

The arrival of any next-gen game is exciting right now. You can even bag one for free as a part of February's 2021 Playstation Plus roster, but you can also pre-claim it if you're not yet on PS5.

Plus, the fan-favorite God of War recently received an excellent next-gen patch.
