Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gets June release date and special editions

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart finally has a release date. The anticipated PlayStation 5 game will launch on June 11 and pre-orders are open today.

Sony released a brief sizzle reel of the game, revealing the long-elusive release date. Originally, Sony said the game would launch in the PS5’s “launch window,” but didn’t specify what that meant. It later said the game would launch in the first half of 2021, before walking the window back in a CES video presentation.

Pre-orders for the game open today, and players can pick up several different special editions. The standard PS5 digital edition comes with the Pixelizor weapon from 2016’s Ratchet & Clank and a set of Carbonox armor from Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. The regular edition retails for $70, which is par for the course for new next-gen titles.

A physical launch edition of the game will be available as well, which includes the same perks via a download voucher card.

A digital deluxe edition of the game is available for $80. In addition to the standard edition’s bonuses, players get a digital soundtrack, art book, armor set, and more. It also includes a sticker pack for the game’s new photo mode, which is a series first for the Ratchet & Clank franchise.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart will be one of the first major exclusives to hit the PS5 since it launched in November. Despite launching alongside Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls, the console’s early months have been slim. The console’s next big release is Returnal, which was recently delayed to April.

Resident Evil 4: How long to beat and how many chapters

Capcom's Resident Evil 4 remake isn't your typical video game double dip. Rather than taking a Dead Space approach and delivering a fairly faithful 1:1 remake, the new version of Resident Evil 4 is a radically reinvented version of the 2005 horror classic. Not only has the gameplay seen a major overhaul, but its story has too. Familiar beats have been entirely reimagined in some cases, which changes a few key things about the original's structure.

You might be wondering how that impacts the remake's length. Yes, there are some changes, especially to its chapter structure. Here's how long it'll take you to complete the remake and how many chapters you can expect.
