With the Playstation 4 set to be released at the end of this year, there ran the chance that we would not see another installment of the long-running Ratchet & Clank series that has provided many gamers with entertainment over the last two console generations. However Sony Computer Entertainment have today announced Ratchet & Clank: Nexus – a story driven platform adventure with the same humour, outrageous weapons and more that we have come to expect from the franchise.
First appearing in November 2002, the Ratchet & Clank franchise has been a massive success, quickly becoming one of the most popular Sony Computer Entertainment titles of all time, with the games having gone on to sell 26 million copies worldwide. This new title marks a true return to form for the celebrated series by developer Insomniac Games, and might just give a clue to help finally solve the mystery of Ratchet’s origins.
After one of the most infamous manhunts in galactic history results in the capture of Vendra and Neftin Prog, Ratchet & Clank offer to escort the dangerous criminals to the Vartax Detention Center. After a daring orbital jailbreak at the forgotten edge of the galaxy, Ratchet & Clank find themselves lost in an abandoned sector. There, in the depths of space, they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe—and forces Ratchet to decide what’s really important!
