Ratchet & Clank on PS4 looks like a playable Pixar movie

New, 22 comments

Last year at E3, Insomniac Games revealed that it was working on a "reimagined" version of the original Ratchet & Clank for the PlayStation 4. Today the studio released the first footage of the game in action — and it looks like much more than just an HD remake.

The series has always been known for its incredibly detailed, Pixar-style 3D worlds, and that style unsurprisingly looks even better on PS4. The trailer — which blends gameplay footage with clips from the upcoming Ratchet & Clank film — shows off beautiful, dense sci-fi environments that look like they'll be a whole lot of fun to explore. Insomniac says that the game builds off the original PS2 version by adding "modern controls, several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences, and more."

Ratchet & Clank is due to hit the PS4 next spring, while the movie is scheduled to premiere in April 2016. Expect to hear more details on the game at E3 in Los Angeles next week.
