Insomniac and Sony have released a new trailer of the upcoming Ratchet & Clank. They took this opportunity to remind fans that the game and the film, which will be coming to cinemas later next month, are designed as complementary pieces.
Both the film and the game tell the same origin story of Ratchet & Clank battling Chairman Drek, with the same major beats and character arcs. However, while the film focuses more on the story and character development, the game will be told from Captain Copernicus L. Qwark's egocentric perspective. Due to this, the events of the game won't be exactly set up like the movie, allowing players to experience the story in a different way.
The game can be seen as a mix of a remake and a reboot, a completely new game, but with quite a few elements based on the original. As we previously reported, the game will include new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, boss fights, flight sequences, and more. Players can also expect one of the largest arsenal in the series, with the game featuring weapons from the original Ratchet & Clank, fan-favourites from the Ratchet & Clank Future series, and completely new weapons.
Ratchet & Clank releases on PS4 on the 12th of April in North America and on the 20th of April in Europe. It will be priced at $39.99/â‚¬34.99/£29.99.
