With April almost behind us, Sony PlayStation held a new State of Play event which, although short on announcements, did give us a brand new Ratchet & Clank trailer to gawk at. It is no surprise then that the majority of the event was devoted to Sony’s famous duo of heroes.
Here’s what was announced at Sony PlayStation State of Play April 2021:
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay trailer
With the release of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Appart just around the corner, Insomniac showed off some new footage of the upcoming game.
We get to see some of Ratchet’s new moves and the game’s combat mechanics. We also look at the Lombax’s increased mobility as Ratchet can chain together moves to quickly traverse the environment.
Of course, with Sony revealing Rivet, the game’s female Lombax, in the last trailer, Insomniac also showed off some gameplay featuring her working together with Clank.
The game looks gorgeous, thanks to the power of the console, and is set for release on the 11th of July, exclusively for the PS5.
Subnautica: Below Zero trailer
During State of Play, Sony also showed off Unknown World’s new Subnautica game, Subnautica: Below Zero.
We get to see the game in action and learn more about how the mechanics work.
Of course, the trailer shows how Below Zero will make use of all the PlayStation 5’s new features, including shiny visuals and haptic feedback from the DualSense controllers.
The game is set to release on the 14th of May.
