Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart
The April edition of Sony’s State of Play event largely revolved around Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, a third-person action-adventure game launching for the PS5 on June 11.
The gameplay of the title shows how the adaptive activation functions of the PlayStation 5 will play a key role in the game. These include how various weapons will act when the triggers are pulled on a PS5 controller.
For example, the burst pistol will fire single shots when the trigger is pressed halfway, but it will fire a burst shot when the trigger is pressed all the way. Other weapons like the Enforcer shotgun will also fire one or two barrels based on trigger pressure.
The game will also make use of the PS5’s ultra-fast SSD storage to transport gamers to a new location with hardly any loading time. The game shows this in the middle of a boss battle when Ratchet is instantly sent to a completely new location in the middle of the battle without much delay.
Between us, Subnautica Below Zero
The new State of Play event also revealed more details on two more games coming to PS4 and PS5 soon. The first of these is the multiplayer strategy and deduction game Among Us. The console version of the popular mobile and PC game will also feature a new costume celebrating the launch of the new game Ratchet & Clank. However, the title has no release date as of now.
The second title is Subnautica Below Zero, an underwater survival game that will now feature Dualsesnse support and 4K graphics. Players who own the first game on PlayStation 4 can also upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.
