Ratchet & Clank All 4 One: Face the Octomoth!

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Sep 29, 2011 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

We hope you’ve been enjoying the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Limited Beta over the last couple of weeks, and we’re excited for you to get your hands on the full game this October 18th. Recently, we’ve released videos showing off the different elements of the game, including a particularly epic spot focused on the light-eating Z’Grute boss that our heroes (and villain) must battle in the city of Luminopolis.

This latest video we want to share takes place on the Aldaros Plains, one of the first areas you’ll explore on Planet Magnus. This is an area of the planet where the rules of gravity seem to be bent, and floating islands of rock make up the shifting landscape. The boss here is a gigantic creature called an Octomoth. If the name doesn’t give you an immediate idea of what this fearsome creature would be like, watch the video above!

We hope you enjoyed today’s video, and have your pre-order for All 4 One all ready to go for the 18th. To keep up with the latest happenings, be sure to follow Insomniac Games on Twitter or Like us on Facebook!

Just 2 questions. Does Ratchet & Clank All 4 One support single player w/CPU controlled coop….?? Also – how long is the game (will it be like similar releases)….??

Gameplay looks AWESOME….!!

    Yup, there is single-player play with a CPU controlled bot. The game is a full-fledged R&C adventure!

I’m still not buying this game until you bring back true competitive multiplay back to the Ratchet & Clank series. The weapon customization in A Crack in TIme would’ve been perfect for multiplayer but apparently Insomniac has no desire to bring multiplayer back. There was a real community for those games back on PS2, which is something to say pre-ps3 and the online explosion we’ve seen today. I’ve been waiting for the day you bring back R&C competitive multiplayer and I thought this would be the title to do it but i was wrong again.

In the end this will be the first Ratchet game I won’t be buying on day 1, which is sad to say because i love the series but I’m not seeing and real effort being made to expand it.

    We decided to focus on co-op online play this time around. Who knows, we did love the MP in Up Your Arsenal as well

In single player you can play with an AI/CPU controlled partner.

Love this series, but was a bit underwhelmed by the beta. Lots of stuff going on at once makes the game messy and hard to follow at times. I always felt underpowered (hitting a box multiple times to get the bolts inside? lame) and if you get stuck with an idiot in your group be prepared to sit there and wait for him to do the one thing that everyone else already did so you can progress (waiting for other players to shop at the store is also annoying, but I guess unavoidable). I will pick this up, but not day one (will be quite busy with batman)

Hey insomniac. I don’t usually preorder games and I usually wait a while to play it. But the moment I saw this game I new I had to have it and I preordered it last week. Mainly because I want to support game developers who make couch co op games and 4 player to boot. I hope this game sells well and starts a chain reaction of 4 player games on the ps3! I literally can’t wait to play this and invite my friends over to play it with me.

I love the look of this game, and the fact that every trailer and the beta have provided multiple variations of platforming and gameplay.

James, can you tell me when the beta is over?

Love Ratchet & Clank. I have EVERY one, but I hope that the way you play in A4O doesn’t become the norm. I like it, but I also LOVE the single player Ratchet experience. ACIT was the greatest Ratchet game, so I hope to see more like that.

So this isn’t a PS-Move title?
Cuz all this time I kept thinking it was.. :\

the lack of gravity thing is an excellent idea!!! And that boss was very clever. Is there going to be a special edition or collectors edition in the U.S.?

@Nates4Christ (15)

All this talk about putting 4-player games on the PS3 makes me laugh. Nintendo was doing this back in the N64 era.

+ PS_man1984 on September 29th, 2011 at 4:16 pm said:

And Sony should really let Insomniac expand a bit. All they’ve been doing for the past 10 years is make Ratchet and Clank games. Resistance is a nice break, but now Sony is whoring out that series too.

@ps_man1984

there have been 4 player games back on the SNES and PS1 with and add on. 8 players with 2 if the game supported it and the NES could do 6 players with the power pad. look out for the multi platform game.

I can’t be the only one who much preferred the PS2 titles… The PS3 iterations took on a different style, a much more kiddy-orientated one, and to be honest I didn’t enjoy them.

R&C2 is still my favourite :D

Hey,
I’m doing a research paper for my Interactive Media class on how game development Companies use social media to generate buzz on new games coming out to the market, any thoughts?

Thanks

To the Insomniac/Sony guys, I really enjoyed the last 2 Ratchet games on the ps3, actuakkt ive had a crack in time for 2years and just fininshed it last week. The visuals amaze me still. but seriously what are you guys thinking releasing the game in December! This is the worst time to release this game. Why not release it next year, march april, or mid year even, because this game is going to flop like resistance( awesome game) did. As much as i love ratchet and clank, i know that everyone will be playing batman arkham city, uncharted 3 ofcourse which follows, then you got elder scrolls: Skyrim, everyone else will be playing battlefield 3 then modern warfare 3 releases.. then ratchet follows soon after, which i think is a bad time to release. Only die hard ratchet fans will probably notice this game, cause the majority who buy ratchet love single player games and on the ps3 they will be too involved with the hype form the other games. I don’t want to see this game get bad sales, so why not reconsider moving the game to next year, do some more marketing for the game, as sony will have less exclusives compares to 2011.
