In an announcement made on the PlayStation Blog, Insomniac Games has also revealed more about the game’s plot and its various pre-order editions.

As of now, pre-orders can be made digitally and physically, with its $79.99 Digital Deluxe Edition, including five exclusive armor sets, extra upgrade materials, digital soundtrack, and art book. Those who pre-purchase its standard Launch Edition, priced at $69.99, will earn a free weapon and the iconic Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando.

The developer also stated more news involving gameplay and story is coming soon. It is already known that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will benefit from the DualSense’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback with patterns that vary on the type of weapon used.
