Serving as a direct sequel to 2016's Ratchet and Clank remake, Rift Apart sees the return of the titular characters Ratchet and Clank in a parade in celebration of their previous heroics. Clank reveals that he has successfully repaired the Dimensionator, a device that opens rifts to other dimensions, to let Ratchet search for the Lombax race and find his missing family. However, during the height of the parade, Doctor Nefarious launches an attack, and Ratchet accidentally shoots the Dimensionator causing rifts that transport them to an alternate universe.
Since its release last June, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart has mainly received positive reviews from fans and critics, thanks to its stunning visuals, challenging combat, and optimization with the PS5's DualSense controller. Luckily for players looking for even more PS5 Black Friday deals, the PlayStation Store is holding a massive sale that discounts popular games such as Resident Evil Village, Kena: Bridge of the Spirits, Deathloop, and many more.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is available exclusively on the PlayStation 5.
This horror hit put a brilliant new spin on a decades old story, and it did so in a way other filmmakers could learn from, in production and in plot.
