Sony Interactive Entertainment will stream a new episode of its State of Play digital showcase on Thursday, offering an extended look at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. While Insomniac Games’ new action-adventure game will be the focus of the show — Sony promises 15 minutes of PlayStation 5 gameplay — it’s not the only game appearing in the next State of Play.
Viewers can also expect a “quick look” at two unnamed indie games, Sony said, in addition to new Ratchet & Clank gameplay. Thursday’s showcase will kick off at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT, and will be viewable on YouTube and Twitch.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart creative director Marcus Smith will show off “brand-new gameplay with Rivet, deeper looks at some of the new weapons from the out-of-this-world-arsenal, and glimpses at the variety of worlds, characters and gameplay you’ll experience in the full game,” Insomniac community director James Stevenson said on the PlayStation Blog. Rivet is Rift Apart’s new playable Lombax, whose identity was revealed earlier this week.
Sony said not to expect any “hardware or business-focused updates in this show – just loads of explodey goodness.” Set your expectations accordingly!
