It’s one that’s been kicking around the rumour mill for a hot minute, but now it’s official – Insomniac’s excellent PS5 platformer, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the next PlayStation Studios game to make its way to PC.
The game is headed to your nearest (capable) personal computing device on July 26th, and alongside the reveal and release date Insomniac has prepared a shiny new trailer highlighting the PC-specific features that eager players can expect to see.
Firstly, while the PS5 version already had ray-traced reflections, on PC it’ll also have ray-traced shadows. Support for ultrawide resolutions is also in, from 21:9 to 32:9 and even up to 48:9 for those of us out there rocking triple monitors. Then there’s unlocked framerates, upscaling tech like DLSS 3, FSR 2 and XeSS and support for NVIDIA Reflex and DLAA all present as well.
On the control side, expectedly, keyboard and mouse support is here as well as full DualSense controller support with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.
Insomniac says it has more to reveal about the PC version of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart ahead of its July 26th release date, which will hopefully involve detailing what kind of SSD storage folks are going to need to be able to play the game properly, given it famously needed the PS5’s bleeding-edge storage setup to work its fancy rifts and ridiculously-fast transitions.

We gave Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart a 9.5/10 in our review of the original PS5 release, saying “Some minor missed opportunities aside this Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart is an unforgettable, unbelievably gorgeous and downright addictive game and easily the best entry in the fan-favourite franchise. For all of its jaw-dropping visuals, industry-leading design and writing packed with heart and humour it succeeds on first and foremost being a really good time. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the most fun I’ve had with a DualSense in my hand and it stands as the best current reason to own a PS5.”
