PlayStation 4 is coming soon but the PlayStation 3 still has some exclusive titles and today Sony revealed another one: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Developed by Insomniac Games, the title's story follows A Crack in Time and will give clues on Ratchet's origins while featuring new gameplay elements. More details, screens and trailer inside.
Ratchet & Clank® Blast Back on to the Scene in Brand New Adventure Game for PlayStation®3
City, Date: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced the galactic new title in the much loved Ratchet & Clank series, Ratchet & Clank™ Nexus. Following on from the story of Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time™, Ratchet & Clank™ Nexus is a story-driven platform adventure with humour and heart, featuring outrageously upgraded weapons, extreme planet hopping and brand new worlds begging to be explored.
First appearing in November 2002, the Ratchet & Clank franchise has been a massive success, quickly becoming one of the most popular SCEE titles of all time, with the games having gone on to sell 26 million copies worldwide.
This astronomical new title marks a true return to form for the celebrated series by developer Insomniac Games, and might just give a clue to help finally solve the mystery of Ratchet’s origins. After one of the most infamous manhunts in galactic history results in the capture of Vendra and Neftin Prog, Ratchet & Clank offer to escort the dangerous criminals to the Vartax Detention Center. After a daring orbital jailbreak at the forgotten edge of the galaxy, Ratchet & Clank find themselves lost in an abandoned sector. There, in the depths of space, they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe—and forces Ratchet to decide what’s really important!
Ratchet & Clank™ Nexus bridges the classic Rachet & Clank experience with the exciting next step in the wildly popular franchise through brand new gameplay elements, heroic story-driven adventure, irreverent humour, and a familiar cast of characters. But don’t get too comfortable, new locations, weapons, gadgets and enemies will keep you on your toes in this out-of-this-world gaming experience. Space is dangerous again!
That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (2 Hours ago)
OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
@Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
