Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart — everything you need to know before you play

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is almost here, and it has the potential to be one of the best PS5 games so far. It also has the potential to be one of the most confusing, at least if you haven’t followed the series up until this point. That’s because Rift Apart is the 16th entry in this long-running franchise, and it draws heavily on the narratives from previous games, particularly the Future trilogy on PS3.

First and foremost: If you’re a new fan and want to dive into Rift Apart without any preamble, you should be able to do so. Developer Insomniac Games has claimed that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is a perfect jumping-on point for new players. It also seems reasonable to assume that the story will have some exposition about the story so far, both to clue newbies in, and to remind veterans of what happened in Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus — which came out eight years ago.

On the other hand, if you want the full Ratchet & Clank story, but don’t have time to play through 15 full games between now and June 11, Tom’s Guide has you covered. Here’s everything you need to know to get the most out of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’s story.
