Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the next chapter in the titular duo’s intergalactic adventures. Developed by Insomniac Games, it serves as a sequel not to the 2016 reboot of the series, but to the older PS3 title Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. That being said, the developers have stressed that Rift Apart has a stand-alone storyline and is a great starting point even if you aren’t familiar with the series.
In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Ratchet and Clank are separated by a dimensional rift and traverse multiple realities to stop Dr. Nefarious from wiping out all organic life. They join forces with a female Lombax resistance fighter, a new playable character.
