New Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Trailer Shows Off Its Weapons and Traversal

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart developer Insomniac Games has released a new trailer for the upcoming PlayStation 5 video game, set to release on June 11th exclusively for the PS5, that details its weapons and traversal methods. The trailer is essentially a quick look at several of the ways Ratchet and Rivet can move around the worlds they find themselves in as well as showcasing a number of the PS5 video game's weapons in action. As with every trailer to date, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart continues to look like it plays incredibly smoothly with the same sort of goofy vibe as previous installments.

More specifically, the trailer first focuses on the Rift Tether and Phantom Dash abilities that allow players to get around before getting into its weapons. Weapons shown off in the new trailer include Buzz Blades, Blackhole Storm, The Enforcer, Lightning Rod, Cold Snap, Ricochet, and Negatron Collider. The various weapons are shown being used by Ratchet and Rivet, so it seems like both will have access to the wide variety of them in the video game. There is also a tease at the end that the next trailer will provide more information on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart's planets.

As noted above, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is scheduled to release exclusively for the PlayStation 5 on June 11th.
