Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has received another trailer as its June 11 release nears. The new video focuses on the wide array of weapons that will be in the PlayStation 5 exclusive. It is hosted by Zurkon Jr. and is titled an “Almost Launch Party.” This is the first of three videos that will show off the platform shooter’s new features.
Old weapons return, such as the Buzz Blades, but there are also new weapons including the Blackhole Storm and Negatron Collider. These will all take advantage of the DualSense controller in a variety of ways. “Pull the adaptive triggers all or halfway for specific weapons to unleash alternating shots of devastation, feel the force behind every blast through the controller’s haptic feedback, and hear the clicks and ticks of your weapons via the built-in speakers,” says developer Insomniac Games.
There are now two new traversal moves to use during combat. Both Ratchet and Rivet can use a Rift Tether to transport the character across the battlefield. Additionally, they can use a Phantom Dash to “safely dodge and phase through incoming enemy attacks.”
