If you have never played a Ratchet and Clank title before, this title will be an excellent choice to introduce yourself to the franchise. This is according to Marcus Smith, the Creative Director of Insomniac Games. However, he adds that the game has more in store for long-time fans of the series. Those who have played the other titles in the series will find deeper layers of connection to previous games.

In addition to this, the game has two really cool rewards for those who will pre-order the game. And yes, these are major Easter eggs from the previous titles in the series.

That’s right, two fan-favorites will make their way into Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that players who pre-order will be able to unlock early. The Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (2003) is now updated with high-definition materials, lighting responses, and ray-traced reflections.
