How Long Does Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Take to Beat?

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the 16th entry in the long-running franchise, and continues the series' tradition of colourful and engaging gameplay.

Rift Apart is set to launch on June 11, 2021, and the review embargo is up. Insomniac Games latest earned very favourable reviews, and the anticipation ahead of this latest PS5 exclusive is palpable.

The series is known as being very approachable, suitable for all ages, and yet has a gameplay hook that even older players will find satisfying.

If you are looking to dive into Rift Apart at launch, you might be wondering how much content a typical Ratchet & Clank game contains.

Lets take a look, shall we?

How Long Is Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart?


Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart follows the trend of previous games in the series of providing a meaty main story for players to engage with and a plethora of collectables and challenges for completionists who want to pad out their playtime.

You can expect a typical playthrough of Rift Apart to take about 10 hours.

From early indicators and reviews, a straight run will take around 8 hours, with players wanting to absolutely see and do everything the game offers taking about 14 hours.

That's a pretty good range, considering. Trophy hunters will be glad to know that you only need to play through the game once for the platinum, and anything missed can be gathered during a New Game Plus run.

It's hard to imagine just blasting through a special game like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart right through to the ending, considering the graphical beauty of the game.

But, far be it from us to tell you how to play. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart launched at 12 am on June 11, 2021, and preload is available right now.
