PlayStation will host a new State of Play livestream on Thursday, April 29, Sony announced in a blog post on Monday. Fans can watch along on PlayStation’s Twitch or YouTube channel at 5 p.m. EDT.

The new State of Play will focus on Ratchet & Clank, showing off more than 15 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which launches June 11. Sony just published a short gameplay trailer about Rivet, the character previously only known as “female Lombax.” Rivet may be a Lombax, like Ratchet, but she’s from an alternate dimension. She is a playable character in Rift Apart, along with the series’ titular heroes.

While Ratchet & Clank are the focus of this State of Play, we could see more details for upcoming PlayStation games as well. Fans still haven’t seen much from Sony Santa Monica’s God of War sequel since its announcement trailer last year, for starters.

Housemarque’s Returnal also launches a day after the new State of Play, so it may make an appearance as well. And a number of other PlayStation titles might get a mention at this State of Play, like Horizon Forbidden West, GhostWire: Tokyo, or the imminent Resident Evil Village.

Sony will likely reveal more details about the new State of Play closer to the virtual event.
