Ratchet & Clank PS4

ANATOMY  OF…RATCHET Anyone who has been with PlayStation for any length of time will know about Ratchet & Clank. If you don’t, then you’re going to have a chance to get acquainted with Ratchet in his first PS4 outing later this year…

Insomniac has said that this year’s Ratchet & Clank for PS4 is not a remake of the first game, but rather “a complete re-imagining,” though we expect this reboot to maintain the key features of the series from a mechanical perspective. That means 3D platforming mixed with a bit of puzzle solving and, most importantly, a huge roster of over-the-top weapons for us to play around with.

One of the reasons that Ratchet & Clank is getting a reboot is that the game is intended to tie-in with the series’ first outing on the silver screen, also due this year. The idea is presumably that the rebooted Ratchet & Clank game will serve as an ideal entry point for people coming to the series for the very first time, via the film.

As the title suggests, Ratchet is always accompanied by his little robot buddy, Clank. Clank spends a lot of his time strapped to Ratchet’s back, where he functions as a heli-pack. However, there are sections in the games in which you are able to control Clank to explore areas that are inaccessible to Ratchet. Clank also has the ability to take control of Gadgebots and have them perform actions on his behalf. 

Ratchet & Clank has got a long history with PlayStation. The first game came out on PS2 back in 2002, with three more being released on that system. Then there is the Ratchet & Clank Future series, of which there were three released on PS3. Once you take into account the spin-offs and the HD collection you’ve got yourself a whole lot of Ratchet & Clank.
