Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, a new trailer and a State of Play coming this Thursday

After Returnal that is expected to be released at the end of the week, the PS5 will offer another major exclusivity.

The State of Play will be held this Thursday, April 29th (the event will be streamed on Twitch and Youtube) and promises us a focus on the awaited Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as well as 15 minutes of gameplay.

To make us wait, Insomniac and Sony revealed today a new trailer and the introduction of a new character named Rivet.

“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.” – Marcus Smith, Creative Director at Insomniac Games

Marcus Smith also took the opportunity to introduce the composer behind the soundtrack of the game: Mark Mothersbaugh. Apart from being the co-founder of the band DEVO, Mark also worked on the soundtracks of the games Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter as well as the animated series Rugrats and the blockbuster: Thor Ragnarok

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is PS5 exclusivity and will be available on June 11th. You can already pre-order the game on the PlayStation website.
