The Future of Gaming conference had so many announcements and reveals that some games were seemingly ignored. One game that didn’t get the attention it deserved was Rachet and Clank: Rift Apart.
Rachet and Clank: Rift Apart is being developed by Insomniac Games for the PlayStation 5. It’s the next game in the series since the franchise got rebooted in 2016. There’s no release date on the game yet, but it will launch for the PlayStation 5. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.
A new character
Not much was revealed during the gameplay trailer for the game, but one of the standout scenes featured a female Lombax who has huge ties to the game. Insomniac Games recently confirmed that in the game, players would be able to play as Rachet and the mysterious Lombax who hails from another world.

Not much has been revealed about this new heroine yet, but it’s likely that she will have a different set of weapons and skills as compared to Rachet.
Based on the trailer, we can see that Rachet will once again have access to an array of weapons that he can use to decimate foes and destroy obstacles in his path. The arsenal of weapons has always been one of the selling points of any Rachet and Clank game, so it’s exciting to see what Rachet can use this time around.
We haven’t seen any of the weapons yet, but knowing Insomniac games and their handiwork during the previous title, we’re bound to have some unique and amazing weapons in Rachet and Clank Rift Apart.
One of the new features being added to this new Rachet and Clank is the ability to jump through different worlds. We’ve yet to know how this will work out, but the developers did say that Rachet will be able to jump between the worlds through the rifts seamlessly.
The trailer put us through some unique worlds, including a futuristic city, prehistoric land, and what looks to be the ship of some space pirates. We’re bound to see more worlds once the game launches.
Rachet and Clank Rift Apart is just one of the many amazing games revealed at The Future of Gaming event. This is one of the titles kickstarting the next generation of gaming, so it will be exciting to see what comes next.
