‘Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault’ to include tower defense

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will include a tower defense element.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, the franchise's upcoming PlayStation Network installment, will include a tower defense element, according to Insomniac Games.

"Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault heads back to the classic camera, weapons and third-person Ratchet gameplay that the series is known for, while adding a new tower defense element that will have you building and defending a base against invasions using your ultimate Ratchet & Clank arsenal," said James Stevenson, Insomniac Games’ senior community manager. "This new twist, added to the classic Ratchet gameplay, brings a whole new level of strategy and decision-making to Full Frontal Assault."

Players can choose between playing as Ratchet, Clank or Captain Qwark in five levels spread over three planets. Full Frontal Assault will also include two player split-screen and online play, which Insomniac has promised to detail later.

Insomniac CEO Ted Price had previously teased that Full Frontal Assault would include "a whole new way to play" when he announced the game as part of the franchise's 10th anniversary celebration. Earlier this week, Insomniac announced Ratchet & Clank Collection, which will bundle three PlayStation 2-era Ratchet & Clank games.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is expected to be released this fall on PSN.
