Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time; Space, the not-so-final frontier

The Ratchet & Clank series have always been about exploration and collecting. Up until now, this feature has been targeted at the various worlds that the duo explore. Space has always been seen as just a glimpse from the cockpit of your ship or as a brief shooter style level in which you are hindered to a set path.

With A Crack in Time, you’ll be able to take full control over your spacecraft and travel wherever you wish to go; exploring moons, asteroid belts, and whatever other surprises you might find.

With hints in the past that the new division would be focusing on their own titles, the podcast confirms that the new game is not a Resistance or a Ratchet entry and is “a lot of fun”, if not a long way off.
