It's almost time. Ratchet And Clank: Rift Apart will go live in a few hours. The first big AAA PS5 exclusive from one of Sony's studios is almost here.
Of course, the Demon 's Souls remake is geniusl in all respects, but it is a remake of a PS3 title. . And Returnal is a fantastic game, but it's from a studio other than Sony. And those are the only two true PS5 exclusives at this point.
Rift Apart represents the first large PS5-only version coming to the console since its release in November 2020. Here's what you need to know ahead of its launch .
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Exit time
The game will launch on June 11, 2021. It 's this Friday. But it officially releases at 12 p.m. ET, so if you've pre-ordered the game digitally, you can launch it then. That means 9 p.m. PT for anyone on the West Coast.
However, when I went to check out my copy of the game, the countdown only showed 5 hours and 20 minutes (approx. ) until I can start playing. This sets the exit time to 8 p.m. PT or 11 p.m. ET. I don't know if something is wrong with my system or if it means the game is released an hour earlier. Best to check in at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET just to be sure!
If you've ordered a physical copy of the game you'll have to wait until it arrives tomorrow unless you're charmed and Lady Luck send you your copy sooner.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart File size
When it comes to next-gen (or current-gen) games, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is actually not that huge. This is a good thing since the PS5 has such a ridiculously small SSD, with less than 700 GB of storage space for gaming installations.
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is only 33 GB ou then, which means it will only take up a small amount of disk space. Nothing compared to the 100+ gigs required for Call Of Duty and other major releases.
Ratchet and Clank : Rift Apart Preload
If you have pre-ordered or purchased this game digitally, it should download automatically before launch. My copy is downloaded, for example, and I have nothing to do. Make sure your settings are correct and yours should too, as long as your tiny PS5 drive isn't already full. This means you can start playing at 8 p.m. sharp (or 9 p.m. if my countdown is wrong).
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart Reviews
At the moment, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is holding a. He obtains an 88/100 with 97% of the criticsI'm recommending the game. I'm honestly surprised it's that low. Who doesn't recommend it I wonder? Even the lowest rated reviews I've seen recommend the game.
It seems a few sites are giving the game an "average " rating of 7/10, which is a bit of a concern , but over 100 reviews have reviews written for th th game already. WaPo's Gene Park says what is really praise.
Of course we haven't received a review copy because Sony inexplicably blacklisted us and refuses to tell us why or why. communicate with us at all, which I find both rude and super unnecessary. Nonetheless, I still love and enjoy a lot of PlayStation exclusives and I pre-ordered this one so that I could play and review it as well, review the code or not.
I launch the game ASAP as it will go live tonight and will report my impressions soon. Stay tuned and have fun!
