The latest trailer for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart finally reveals who the lady Lombax is that was shown in the game’s first announcement trailer. Her name is Rivet, and what is obvious is that she lives in an alternate dimension.
The trailer shows Emperor Nefarious opening a rift into a dimension where he “always wins.” That’s where Rivet originates from, and she meets Clank and drags him along just like his regular companion. From then on, a bunch of gameplay footage was shown. You can see the full trailer below:
According to a PlayStation Blog, the Nefarious dimension is all about hunting organic life. This leads to new locations like Nefarious City, and reimagined versions of planets from other games like Sargasso and Torren IV.
The blog also showed off some the cosmetic skins coming with the Digital Deluxe edition, which includes suits for both Ratchet and Rivet. Those suit include the Scavenger, Android, Imperial, Rebel, and Hacker, along with other extras.
Sony and Insomniac also announced that a State of Play presentation focused around Ratchet & Clank is coming this Thursday, April 29th at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. They did promise 15 minutes of gameplay during the presentation.
