LATEST - State of Play Update

If you missed it, we've just had a new State of Play presentation from PlayStation and it was all about everyone's favourite Lombax (and his robot... And the new Lombax that might be everyone's favourite now.)

That's right! We got around fifteen minutes of brand-new Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart footage and it's safe to say that Insomniac Games' upcoming PS5 title looks amazing. It might just be the best-looking PlayStation 5 game to date!


In the latest footage, we got a brand new look at a lot. So much, in fact, that we thought it would be best to list it below:

  • Near-Instant loading times thanks to PS5's SSD
  • New Traversal Mechanics (Phantom Dash, Wall-Running, Rift Tether)
  • DualSense's Adaptive Triggers & Haptic Feedback in action
  • New Weapon Teaser (NegaTon Collider)
  • Accessibility Options (Inc. Game Speed toggle options)
  • Photo Mode
  • Open-Ended Exploration
  • Clank-based Puzzles
  • Glitch Combat
  • Arena Challenges
  • Aerial Combat

Yep, that's right. Rivet is going to be playable, as far as we know, in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. For a more detailed rundown of all this, you can check out the PlayStation Blog Post about it here.

It's Going Down Later Today!

It's State of Play Day (again) and we are buzzed. Insomniac Games' next Ratchet and Clank title have been a game a lot of people were waiting for and it's hard to believe that it's so close!

PlayStation is promising around fifteen minutes of new footage from Ratchet and Clank during the State of Play. We're expecting it to delve deeper into who Rivet is and why she's crossing paths with Ratchet. We know so far that it's something to do with the Omniverse being in danger, which sounds bad.

In addition to this, there's going to be at least two more indie titles showcased during the event. We don't know what games these will be, though, so we're open to guesses!


State of Play Start Time

It has been confirmed that the new PlayStation State of Play event will take place on Thursday, April 29 at 5pm ET/10pm BST and will feature "more than 15 minutes of fresh gameplay" from Racket & Clank: Rift Apart.

It's not clear quite yet if anything else will be revealed during the stream, but it'll certainly focus on Ratchet and Clank.

How to Watch

While you'll be able to catch all of the new information after the fact, it'll be good to follow State of Play live.

Thankfully, you can tune in to the PlayStation Twitch and YouTube channels at the start time to be the first to see the new gameplay.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Some information has been revealed ahead of time for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

First off, a new trailer was released for the game, which you can see below, and it was confirmed that the female Rombax is called Rivet. She'll play a huge part in the upcoming game.

PS Plus

While we expect the State of Play to only focus on Ratchet & Clank, we think there's a small possibility that some other news is announced at the same time.

PS Plus free game lineups have been revealed during State of Play events too, so it's possible that they are this month too.


The only other thing we'd expect to see during the State of Play, if it's not 100% Ratchet and Clank focused, is a trailer for Returnal.

Housemarque's game is coming to PS5 on April 30, so it would make sense for one more marketing push while they have the eyes of PlayStation fans on them.

If anything else is revealed during the State of Play, we'l be sure to let you know what it is.
