Ratchet & Clank: Tools Of Destruction’s Sargasso Returns In New Rift Apart Trailer

Ratchet and Clank are drifting apart across the multiverse in Insomniac’s Rift Apart come June 11, and to celebrate, a brand new teaser has just dropped. This time, Zurkon Jr. walks us through a variety of planets – some old, some new.

On the planet selector, we see Savali, Scarstu Debris Field, Sargasso, and Corson V, before blasting off to Nefarious City in the latter. Then, the teaser cuts to Sargasso: Outpost L51 and that might sound familiar to intrepid fans of the Future Trilogy on the PlayStation 3. That’s because it appeared in Tools of Destruction.

It’s an important planet because in-game, Sargasso is where Ratchet, Clank, Talwyn, Cron, and Zephyr discovered facilities used to test none other than the Dimensionator, the very weapon that Nefarious is using to manipulate reality to find a world where he will always be the victor. We even get to see the Anthropods again, those little red critters with eyes on sticks, only now they’re a greenish-yellow that we can ride.

Next up is Torren IV which, again, should sound familiar to those who played the older games. It’s in the Polaris Galaxy and we visit it in A Crack in Time. It’s where Ratchet met fellow Lombax Azimuth for the very first time. However, in the trailer, it’s Rivet here, so perhaps that will be paralleled.

Then there’s Savali, Ardolis, Blizar Prime, and a statement from Zurkon Jr: “New planets! New versions of old planets! And… alternate dimensions of old and new planets!”

Perhaps we’ll see Ratchet’s homeworld again, the planet we met Angela on for the first time, Novalis, the beautiful Metropolis, or what Corson V looks like without Nefarious’s ruthless rule. But, as Zurkon Jr. puts it, to see more, you’ll have to “play the game.”

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart launches June 11 exclusively to PlayStation 5 for $70.
