A whole new story

The entire narrative of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart revolves around the separation between Ratchet and Clank. While in the past the separation between the two characters could be considered a "trick" by Insomniac to dedicate more missions to players, and therefore lengthen the soup, in this new adventure it will represent a twist essential. In fact, at the beginning of Rift Apart, our friends will split up following the fall through a portal to a new dimension. At this point, Clank will come into contact with a brand new character: Rivet, a completely new lombax in the series (whose story will likely be told during the game).

Just as Ratchet Clank will be busy reuniting with his mate, finding himself trapped in a town called Nefarious City. The city in question, also unpublished, belongs to a reality in which the wicked Dr. Nefarious (main antagonist of the series) has carried out his evil plans. To stop it, our protagonists will have to join forces in a team never seen before!
