Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart set for PC release next month

PlayStation is bringing another former PlayStation 5 exclusive to the PC next month, and it’s the turn of excellent family friendly dimension-hopping adventure Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart.

The newest game in the series sees everyone’s favourite lombax and his robot pal embark on a brand new journey, in which the dynamic duo are separated after the villainous Dr. Nefarious gets his hands on a dimension hopping machine. However, this has the unintentional side effect of sending Clank into the equally heroic care of Rivet. The three heroes must team up across universes to stop Dr Nefarious’ evil scheme and stop multiple universes from collapsing in on itself by exploring a bunch of variously themed worlds – with the ability to cross vast distances via the use of rifts.

These rifts were a pretty big deal – because they showcased the power of the brand-new PlayStation console, and just what it could do with its new SSD technology to load in the areas in a flash. Of course, PCs have had SSDs for a while, so while that aspect might not quite be the selling point it once was, it’s still a great game to be coming to the PC – and it’ll have a bunch of mod cons to boot.

Those PC features include a bunch of upscaling technology like NVIDIA DLSS 3, AMD FSR 2, Intel XeSS and Insomniac Games’ own Temporal Injection. It’ll also support Nvidia Reflex and DLAA. There’ll be mouse and keyboard support – of course – with customisable controls, and will support ultra-wide monitors like 21:9, 32:9 and 48:9 so the game will look better than ever. That’ll be helped by the introduction of new ray-traced shadows to go along with ray-traced reflections and more.
