"Rift Apart" is the first really new title of the Platform shooter series "Ratchet & Clank" for eight years - the predecessor "Into The Nexus" came in 2013 for the Playstation 3.
A lot has happened technically since then: The graphics are more detailed than ever and use the computing power of the Playstation 5 out. Even the fur of the hairy main character Ratchet was lavishly animated.
At the beginning of the game, Clank presents the repaired Dimensionator, which can open paths in parallel universes. Instead of Held Ratchet, however, this ends up with the villain Dr. Nefarious. This triggers cracks in the space-time continuum - and chaos begins.
