2016’s Ratchet & Clank
will be getting a new update in April 2021 that will make it playable in 60 FPS on PS5.Insomniac Games announced the news on Twitter,
while also reminding fans that Ratchet & Clank is available for free for PS4 and PS5 owners through the end of March
via its Play at Home initiative.
Sony announced the return of its Play at Home initiative last month, and shared that fans could expect four months of free offers for PlayStation games and entertainment. These free games are available for all, even those who do not subscribe to PlayStation Plus. Furthermore, the game is yours forever once you redeem it.
This 60 FPS patch will give fans a small taste as to what Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will feel like running on the PS5 when it is released on PS5 on June 11, 2021, albeit without the upgraded graphics and effects.
In our review of 2016’s Ratchet & Clank, we said, “is a culmination of everything Insomniac has done with the series over the past 14 years. It takes the characters that we fell in love with long ago, and sets them off on their most gorgeous quest yet. The deep and rewarding weapon system, beautiful and varied worlds, and charming-as-heck story make it an adventure that anyone with a PlayStation 4 should strap in for.”
