Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the latest in a long line of PlayStation-exclusive third-person shooters that goes back to PS2. This time around, Dr. Nefarious whips up a device that lets him access other dimensions. He uses it to separate the lovable Lombax Ratchet from his robotic friend Clank. Your job is to reunite the friends, while hopping between alternate realities and using a wide array of powerful (and often comedic) weapons. There’s also a new female Lombax in the equation, but we haven’t gotten many details about her yet.The game also makes use of PS5-specific features, including super-fast loading times, 4K HDR graphics, ray tracing, haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, and 3D sound.
