With the new Ratchet & Clank: Drift Apart developer video out, Sony has tried its hands at something new for its PlayStation5 (PS5) offering.
Insomniac’s Creative Director Marcus Smith, who’s working on the game, explained in the video how the hardware construction helped with the design of this new game exclusively for PS5 with captivating dimensional rifts, new space explorations, experiential feedback and more.
Exotic Space Exploration
How would it feel to be free in the space and reach destinations in a jiffy? Ratchet & Clank will wander in the exotic, seamless world of exploration, leaving you in places you have never seen before. And all that in the blink of an eye.

With its solid-state drives, it will leave you anywhere before you click the gamepad, no, seriously! It had an endless list of objects and world to explore from robotic Jetson’s Ville to Avatar’s Pandora. Ratchet jumps around in exotic locations killing enemies with its robotic clank.
PC gamers would always have an issue while loading games because they have to wait. PS5 loads not only the games but each level so quickly that you cannot rest your mind to zilch. This happens so rapidly and yet seamlessly and natural. After all, it’s about bringing exciting new adventures.
Visually Captivating Dimensional Rifts
PS5’s Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is made in multi-dimensional space where the player can explore through wormhole rifts, created in the 3D environment. This requires the game to use ultra-high-speed data transfer in nanoseconds.
Here PS5 stands right at the top from its previous generations, providing an intense graphical trance. Which would not be possible without the current solid-state drive of the PlayStation 5. The ultra-fast SSD allows projecting players from one place to another in near-instantaneous speeds.
Experiential Tactile Feedback
The DualSense gamepad will take your experience to another level with its Ratchet & Clank weaponry compatible. You would be surprised by its ‘Tempest’ audio engine augmenting the sensorial experience for players.
Tactile feedback is always necessary as it helps you gauge powerful weaponry mechanism like a double-barreled shotgun that works on adaptive triggers to give you tension on your pad. By pressing your finger down halfway, you can fire one barrel and just pull it further to shoot two.
The amount of feedback that you get using these weapons will make you feel way more powerful with the more immersive gameplay experience.
Super Surround Sound
The 3D surround sound has been experiential as compared to other systems. There is a difference between theatre sound and space-immersive sound. It will modulate the voice of rain and the feel of the forest to give to the momentary experience right from your speakers. Such intense surround will surely transport you to another world.
Taking the advantage of the new hardware of the console, Ratchet & Clank was announced during Sony’s official PS5 console reveal on June 11. It would further help the series develop for the current compatibility.
Creative director Marcus Smith explained that the current hardware system is very important for gameplay, as fast as it could be, including jumping between completely different worlds on the fly.
In the new PS5 console, you can see world marked with a wavy, cracked portal, without a loading screen, before you arrive in the new world. Play to find yourself.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart releases in 2021 for PS5.
