To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank franchise, Sony announced that it is adding five new games from its PlayStation 3 era to the PlayStation Plus Premium subscription service on November 15.
A few Ratchet & Clank games were already available on Sony’s revamped PS Plus service, but the update expands that list out significantly. Here’s the full list of games coming to the service.
- Ratchet & Clank (PS3)
- Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
- Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
- Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked
- Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction
It’s worth noting that PlayStation 3 games can only be streamed from the PlayStation Plus Premium service, not downloaded directly like how Xbox Game Pass games can operate.
Additionally, the PlayStation 5 game Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will receive a free 20th-anniversary armor pack today. It contains five armors that are inspired by different games in the franchise. The Commando Armor is inspired by Going Commando, Holoflux Armor inspired by Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Quest Armor inspired by Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, Marauder Armor inspired by Deadlocked, and a Clank armor inspired by Ratchet’s robot companion.
Today, we’re celebrating 20 years of travel across space, time and dimensions with Ratchet & Clank!

The first Ratchet & Clank game launched in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 when Insomniac was still an independent developer. The studio is best known for working on the Ratchet & Clank and Spyro franchises. It also developed the PlayStation-exclusive first-person shooter series, Resistance. Insomniac created one Microsoft exclusive, Sunset Overdrive, for Xbox One and PC. Nowadays, Insomniac is most well-known for Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for PS4 and PS5.
