Sony’s State of Play event shows off tons of gameplay from Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for the PS5


Since the launch of the PS5, the one thing gamers had been asking for is more games. In fact, as we’ve reported earlier, the console has already sold 7.8 million units since it was launched in November last year. Sure, we’ve got the excellent Demon’s Souls remake, Spider-Man: Miles Morales (review), Returnal (review) and a few more. But it’s been six months since the console’s release and we have not seen any new games yet. But that’s about to change as Sony announced Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for the PS5 at the latest State of Play event. The showcase was mostly centred around the exclusive PS5 title, showing off the world, graphics and a bit of gameplay. You can check out the presentation and gameplay below. 

And, right off the bat, you’ll notice that the way the game looks is absolutely stunning. The world-building and all the crazy detail everywhere is just astounding. We really have come such a long way in terms of visual fidelity in games, it’s crazy. The game still captures the feel and emotion of the earlier games but has had a shiny, slick coat of visual paint slapped over it. The combat also looked great with new mechanics combining with old ones, to create something visually and tactically new. One such feature being the Rift Tears, which you can use to teleport all over the battlefield. If the showcase is anything to go by, the game is going to be great. 

Sony also showed off a bit of Subnautica: Below Zero, an expansion of the original game as well as the announcement that Among US will be coming to PlayStation. There wasn’t much else really as Sony decided to really show off Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. It looks like Sony is banking on the game to be a hit on the PlayStation 5.
