Today, during Sony’s State of Play event, developer Insomniac Games revealed new gameplay footage from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, the latest entry in the long-running series of oddball action games.


The 17 minutes of gameplay opens with Ratchet, absent Clank, alone in a metropolis (dubbed Nefarious City) that looks straight out of Coruscant. Ratchet’s seeking a way off-planet, and has to follow the dubstep to Club Nefarious, where apparently he’ll find what he’s looking for.

There’s wall-running, a dash move, and a grappling hook. Like fellow PS5-exclusive Returnal, Rift Apart makes use of the pressure-sensitive triggers to alter fire modes. The footage further showed off some of those much-ballyhooed dimensional rifts, which can zip you to new regions without a loading screen. Oh, yeah, and Rivet, the new playable character, showed up!
