Back in November of 2002, Insomniac games unleashed a futuristic, cartoon platformer on the world. Ratchet and Clank were born along with some of the dodgiest sequel subtitles and most innovative weaponry seen in gaming… Sheepinator anyone?
In the tenth game in the series, Ratchet and Clank are escorting Vendra, a dangerous criminal to prison when her twin brother stages a jailbreak and they escape, setting up the plot for the gadget wielding duo. Apparently, Nexus brings some darkness to the adventure with a nemesis that is more deadly than any faced before. After a short break into the multiplayer genre, Ratchet goes back to the more familiar single player, story driven platform that many have been waiting for and ends the R&C Future saga, at least until next gen… Hopefully.
The launch trailer does a great job of setting the scene with it’s pounding, Star-Wars style soundtrack and snippets of story to get you ready for the game’s release.
New weapons, gadgets and gameplay are on offer as always with some awesome guns being added, such as the Vortex Cannon, which drags enemies into another dimension… probably to suffer alongside General Zod. Old friends will enter the fray to offer support with welcome allies returning. Expect the vainglorious Captain Qwark to save the day at some point.
When you purchase Ratchet & Clank Nexus from the Playstation Store or a retail box, you’ll receive the entitlement to a copy of The Quest for Booty too, giving you more bang for your buck, excitement from your euro or playtime for your pound.
Ratchet and Clank Nexus will be available on the 15th of November (UK) in your local game stores and on the PS Store for £19.99/€24.99 and was released today in the US.
