Sorry, PlayStation 4 owners. You’ll have to upgrade to get your R&C fix.

Additionally, Insomniac Game Director Mike Daly elaborated on the different capabilities of the DualSense controller and how these new features will be implemented in Rift Apart.
A new playable character will be making a debut in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. Shown briefly at the end of the gamescom 2020 presentation, audiences were given a look at this new design.
