Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time Axiom City Walkthrough

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by

At PAX, we scored some time with James Stevenson, Community Manager at Insomniac Games who was kind enough to walk us through some brand new Axiom City gameplay in Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. Specifically, James gives us the lowdown on a heap of weapons — including the all-powerful (and deceivingly small) Rift Inducer — and what they can do.

October 27 is fast approaching, so don’t forget about the pre-order bonuses!

@2 Silent_Gig
Good Resistance 3 news will be
1) Hale is the main character or no buy for me
2) Multiplayer need to go back to Resistance Fall of Man. Resistance 2 multiplayer was azz compare to the greatness of Resistance Fall of Man.
3) We will be able to used Hale kick ass power at the end of Resistance 2 in Resistance 3.

I am SO glad to hear that the devices from Tools of Destruction were merged with the weapon. The lack of upgrading potential made me hold off from using Mr. Zircon extensively :P


September 22nd, 3:43 pm

Looks AWESOME!!!!! i need it NOW! Wait hurts me every second… *1 second* “AUCH” *1 second* “AUCH!!!!”

DJnal05 said:

September 22nd, 3:43 pm

why is this game getting less media coverage then others????

smokey_vols said:

September 22nd, 3:46 pm

Can you please specify which store is getting which preorder bonus?

Liamario said:

September 22nd, 3:46 pm

I can’t understand how they can get Ratchet & Clank looking so beautiful and running at 60fps and at the same time produce the mediocrity that it Resistance- cardboard weapons, cardboard enemies. PS2 GFX and boring, tedious gameplay

Blkant said:

September 22nd, 3:53 pm

Why do the walls look like quarterpipes? Almost like some kind of poorly designed skatepark :P

EPRaider08 said:

This is awesome. Day one purchase for me.

Hi James,

Thanks for this preview of Axiom City, which looks superb btw.

Could you give us the length of the game in hours ? Thanks !

tirminyl said:

September 22nd, 4:01 pm

I can’t for this game. The weapons are great as always!

Lucreto said:

September 22nd, 4:06 pm

I can’t wait.

The only problem it in the previous game I had trouble hearing Mr. Zircon’s witty responses through the explosions with his deep voice, will there be an imrovement on that?

Secondly when will the EU Special Edition be announced? I have money waiting to preorder it. :)

TheGuardianFID said:

September 22nd, 4:12 pm

September 22nd, 4:14 pm

looking good but off topic when will i receive mag beta code i bought qore on the 17th aint receive code yet i got everything right when should be the latest that ill get it

plaztiksyke said:

September 22nd, 4:30 pm

Will the engine enhancements be backported to Tools of Destruction and/or Quest for Booty?

Vergil3690 said:

September 22nd, 4:36 pm

Dear Insomniac,

Please, please, PLEASE don’t let this be the last R&C game! It’s pretty much one of my favorite game series ever. You’re also one of my favorite game studios because of that.

P.S. I’m going to pre-order this game ASAP!

RonnyMoon720 said:

September 22nd, 4:36 pm

ever since i put in ratchet and clank tools of destruction after 3.00 it wont let me install

it says it i have insufficient space when i still have 20 gig

cant wait for crack in time btw

taekw0nd0j0 said:

September 22nd, 5:04 pm

Wait, is there a collectors edition?

crusher915 said:

September 22nd, 5:05 pm

@RonnyMoon720 the solution is to add 700mb worth of content (videos pictures or music) to your hdd then it should work i don´t know why it works but i know it works

lowhonor said:

September 22nd, 5:06 pm

i won’t be getting an insomniac title again, unless you really impress me

you guys really disappointed me (and im sure many others) with resistance 2 and its lack of features (ie. split screen,) fixes, and support

WestSiide said:

September 22nd, 5:06 pm

i guess im not the only one that didnt really enjoy r2 multi player as much as the original. looking forward to hearing news on r3.

i guess im not the only one that didnt really enjoy r2 multi player as much as the original. looking forward to hearing news on r3…

September 22nd, 5:37 pm

Awesome the groovetron is back! One of my favorites but the new weapon that was introduced by the contest seems very similar to a weapon i’ve seen in R&C:TOD…

Onigreed said:

September 22nd, 5:46 pm

Is there a date for a demo?

quiomar01 said:

September 22nd, 5:59 pm

When will we see the first commercial for this game?

mafecto said:

September 22nd, 6:23 pm

Game looks awesome, can’t wait.

R3 news would be great, the co-op mode in 2 was one of my gaming highlights of the year last year

PS. Leaked documents from a Sega/Sony meeting are making their rounds on the net right now. It mentions the fact that soon “all Ps3’s will have PS2 software emulation” and that they are in negotiations to bring Dreamcast games to PSN. Go check your favorite game blogs, cause it seems like its legit.

Looks amazing!!!

Anyone know who has what preorder bonus here in Canada? I’d really like to get my hands on the moon..

remanutd5 said:

September 22nd, 7:01 pm

i’ve played the A Crack in Time demo last week at a sony style store , MAN ITS AWESOME!!!!!!!!! cant wait for the full game !!!!!!!

RynoIV said:

September 22nd, 7:11 pm

Freaking awesome. Like remanutd5, I also played the demo at a sony store. The RYNO is in this game as well, right?

RogueCommando said:

September 22nd, 7:20 pm

i dont know if i am going to get this. i am always cautionate on blowing 60 hard earned dollars on a game without online or co-op. i loved the multiplayer in deadlocked and uya although now its just a glitching community with hackers and such. My request is since this wraps up this story arc, if we can see a downloadable title – RATCHET AND CLANK FUTURE: ONLINE. yup, thats my little two cent opinion.

Thrasher20 said:

September 22nd, 7:35 pm

Pretty cool if you ask me

sscoolChea said:

September 22nd, 7:43 pm

Do you want online for every freakin games ?Some are meant to be single player. Some are meant to be different

Airwalkinman17 said:

September 22nd, 8:02 pm

I love ratchet & clank, but I will mostly be buying this game because I LOVE INSOMNIAC!!! You guys are probably my favorite developers out there. Keep up the good work.
Plus, like everyone else on here asking for Resistance 3 news I also wanna say that I can’t wait to hear some juicy info on it in the future. The Resistance series ROCKS!

C_Y_P_H_E_R said:

September 22nd, 8:09 pm

I like Ratchet and Clank…but I would like to hear about Resistance 3.I have heard a lot of complaints about Resistance 2 not being as good as Resistance: FOM.So maybe you guys should look into that.Online co-op for Resistance 2 was awesome.I just wish the lobby rooms where more user friendly for the people who don’t play the game.I think those are legit.

the box art for this game sucks.
