PlayStation announced today that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, one of the flagship titles of the PS5, is coming to PC. It joins several other PlayStation titles that have made the leap from console to PC, although it’s one of the only ones to date that was previously exclusive to the PS5. It is also the first Ratchet & Clank game to launch on PC. It will launch on PC on July 26 on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Nixxes, which Sony acquired in 2021 to run on PC ports, built Rift Apart for PC in conjunction with Insomniac. According to its announcement, the PC version includes support for ray tracing, unlocked frame rates, and ultrawide monitors. It also offers customizable mouse and keyboard controls along with controller support.
Rift Apart is the latest PlayStation title to come to PC, following God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, The Last of Us Part 1 and several others. Sony previously indicated its intention to serve the PC audience by releasing more than half of its games on desktop and mobile by 2025. Rift Apart is also available to PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium subscribers starting this month.
In addition to the game itself, PC gamers get an exclusive armor set and weapon, in addition to others that were available in previous editions of the game.
