Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, an epilogue to the 'Future' series of games, will be released for PS3 on November 13, Sony and Insomniac have announced.

Budget priced at only €29.99, Nexus is described as being shorter than a regular game in the franchise, but acts as a tidy bow on the PS3 era of Ratchet.

"We have a lot of stories to tell, some longer, some shorter," explained James Stevenson, senior community manager at Insomniac Games.

"This one felt just right. It's a very polished self-contained return to the Ratchet adventures of yore. It's impactful, too; filled with planet-hopping, guns blazing, joke-cracking Ratchet & Clank, and events happen here that will change Ratchet forever. Think of it as a small epic."

Pre-order at participating retailers and you'll receive Ratchet's Pyronox Armour inspired by Gadgetron's popular Infernox Armour. The armour provides a 5 per cent damage reduction.
