Sony has discovered that its main franchises perform well on PC. That’s why it shouldn’t surprise us that they are gradually making their way to PC, spacing out releases and taking advantage of their extensive catalog to deliver all the pending titles. The latest example of this is their recent announcement that the formerly exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be released on PC on July 26th.
Originally released on June 11, 2021, for PlayStation 5, this game from Insomniac Games puts players in the shoes of one of Sony’s most iconic duos. Winning numerous industry awards, selling over a million copies in less than a month, and achieving a score of 88 on Metacritic, it is an outstanding game that showcased the technical capabilities of the PlayStation 5 while taking the gameplay of the franchise, a blend of 3D platforming and third-person shooter, to a new dimension. It’s worth noting that Sony itself claimed it was a PlayStation 5 exclusive due to the game’s reliance on an SSD, making it seemingly impossible to run without one.
This PC release will delight not only fans of the franchise but also anyone eager for a solid, visually stunning AAA game that dares to innovate with its mechanics and the technical possibilities of the new generation. While this console generation has yet to fully take off, and the potential of the new graphics cards along with it, we are confident that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, available on Steam and the Epic Games Store, will push your computer’s components to their limits.
