New Ratchet & Clank Shows Off PS5
June 12, 2020
Insomniac Games always likes to show off its technical wizard skills whenever possible and the company's developers are doing it again in the announcement trailer for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart for the Sony PlayStation 5. The PS5's solid state hard drive will definitely cut back on the time needed to load new levels, so what better way to demonstrate that then with a game built around blasting into alternate dimensions during fast-paced action? Every new console generation boasts more polygons, more objects on screen, better lighting, and other gee-whiz improvements, but to see how we're about to leave the clunky loading screen gimmicks like elevators loaded with enemies or a static screen with advice scrolling by behind is the best advertisement for buying a PS5 yet. I can only hope that the finished game handles transitions between locations so elegantly.
