Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Product Details
Released on 09/11/2007
After saving countless planets from dreadful doom and earning intergalactic mega-celebrity status in the process, Ratchet and Clank have taken some well-deserved R&R - again. Yet, Ratchet remains restless. An orphan of the universe, he has never known anything of his past, his family, or his Lombax origins. And no one, not even Clank, can fill that void.
Unfortunately for Ratchet, someone else is equally interested in Ratchet’s origins: Emperor Percival Tachyon. In Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, his thirst for revenge, the vile tyrant of an ancient race of foul insect-like monsters called Cragmites has festered an age-old grudge and is bent on wiping the last-known Lombax off the universe. As Tachyon’s forces ambush Ratchet and Clank in their home galaxy, the heroes of Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction realise they need to escape quickly to prevent its destruction. In a move of desperate irony, Ratchet and Clank steal Tachyon’s imperial warship and embark upon an adventure bigger than any they’ve experienced- one that will not only unravel the mystery of the Lombaxes, but also test the very limits of their friendship.
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction Features:
- Insomniac Games has overhauled its proprietary PS3 engine technology to create the most visceral Ratchet & Clank universe yet, overflowing with exotic creatures and flying vehicles.
- Experience many more objects on screen and in more intricate detail than what was possible on PlayStation 2 Ratchet & Clank games.
- The PS3 system’s superior power enables Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction to bring vivid worlds to life with increased draw distances, enhanced lighting and shadowing, and more fluid and exaggerated animations.
- Discover an all-new galaxy spanning vast worlds such as a majestic cloud city and a space-age amusement park.
- Encounter an entirely new cast of expressive characters (and some old favorites) as well as the introduction of a variety of new alien races and life forms.
- Experience a more emotive Ratchet with nearly as many animation joints in his face (90) as PS2 Ratchet had in his entire body (112). This joint density applies to many of the characters featured in Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, enabling more detailed, personable and expressive characters.
- Clank returns as a playable character, and Ratchet will have new enhanced abilities.
- Fire a fully stocked arsenal of all-new weapons such as the Plasma Beasts and Tornado Launcher, which uses the SIXAXIS controller to direct tornadoes that suck up enemies and whip them around with debris.
- Use the SIXAXIS controller to maneuver, destroy enemies and solve puzzles.
- Upgrade and customize weapons with a new system that provides greater power and flexibility. Players also will have the ability to upgrade Ratchet’s armor.
- Utilize Ratchet’s new supply of consumable “on-demand” combat devices, such as the Groovitron, which causes enemies to dance uncontrollably to ‘70s disco hits.
- Gadgets gameplay returns as Ratchet and Clank will have more gadgets at their disposal to help them bounce, fly, evade and defy gravity.
- Pilot Ratchet’s ship through asteroid fields while trying to destroy enemy fleets in a complete redesign of classic Ratchet & Clank space combat gameplay.
Insomniac goes multiplatform
This is a bit of a shocker. Renowned PlayStation 3 developer Insomniac Games has announced it's going multiplatform with its next project.
Famous for its work creating Sony exclusives like the brilliant Ratchet & Clank platformers and the Resistance FPSs, set in an alternate 1950s in which Earth is fighting off an alien menace, the company has already started work on its new multiplatform game that will be hitting the Xbox 360 as well as the PS3.
The only news at the moment is that the game will be set in "a brand new universe" with no connection to its earlier franchises. It's being published by EA, but as it's still in its early stages, we won't be seeing anything at E3 in early June. Boo!
Insomniac Games' founder Ted Price told Eurogamer that he's excited about working with the Xbox, and that the online platform Xbox Live is a great opportunity. "Xbox Live is impressive in its breadth and its popularity with users. That's a very cool opportunity for us to start taking advantage of."
He added that fans of Resistance and Ratchet have nothing to worry about. "We're still as committed as ever to the franchises we're working on with Sony," said Price.
New Ratchet & Clank dated
According to Eurogamer, Ratchet & Clank All 4 One has been given a European street date of 19th October. That a Wednesday which is weird so wee currently checking to see whether the game will actually be out on Friday, 21st October instead.
Either way, wee excited. If youe a platforming fan with a PlayStation 3, the release of a new Ratchet & Clank game is about as exciting as things can get. This one promises to be the most interesting and exciting yet. Why? Because of four-player co-op, that why!
That drop-in and drop-out co-op, too, and it available either online or locally. Beyond that, you can expect the same cute characters, crazy weapons, and brilliant action set-pieces the series has always been famous for.
We couldn be more thrilled about this one. With Uncharted 3: Drake Deception getting ready to reinvent action-adventure games when it released on 4th November, and now Ratchet & Clank promising over-the-top combat, the PS3 is where it at for anybody who likes running, jumping and shooting. And that all of us, right?
Most movies based on video games have taken their inspiration from high-kicking fighting games or grisly horror franchises like Resident Evil and Silent Hill, but now it looks like someone has finally worked out that there are some games that would be perfect as CG animated family flicks.
Case in point: Ratchet & Clank, which will be coming to cinemas in 2015 according to an announcement from creator Insomniac Games. The movie is in production now at Rainmaker Studios, which released the similarly sci-fi themed family animation Escape from Planet Earth earlier this year.
Unlike other video game movies, this one actually sounds like it stands a good chance of staying true to the games we love. Insomniac's lead writer, TJ Fixman, is penning the script while voice actors James A. Taylor, David Kaye and Jim Ward will all return to play Ratchet, Clank and Qwark.
The Ratchet & Clank games have been among the most popular PlayStation exclusives ever since they launched in 2002. You can pick up the first three titles in the Ratchet & Clank Trilogy collection, while more recent entries in the series include four-player co-op game Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and the platformer tower defence hybrid Ratchet & Clank: QForce.
