Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One Coming to PS3

152 0

Hi everyone. My name is Chad Dezern and I’m the Studio Director at Insomniac Games’ North Carolina studio. I’m here to share some exciting news. We’ve been hammering away in our secret shack in the middle of the woods since January 2009. Now it’s time to emerge into the sunlight and hold our creation aloft. It’s alive!

We’re excited to announce that we’re hard at work on the first ever one-to-four player cooperative, online/offline, drop-in/drop-out Ratchet & Clank title, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One!

We knew from our earliest meetings that we wanted to give players a chance to play in the Ratchet Universe with Ratchet and Clank at the same time. And after we started, we felt an almost moral obligation to include Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious; there was just too much comedy potential in bringing this group together for us to pass up the opportunity. Their bumbling idiocy, prickly antagonism, and unfettered evil was a perfect reflection of how we play All 4 One here in the office. I’m looking forward to telling the story of how the four of them find themselves together . . .

The game is about cooperative play through and through. We want to make it easy to get together with friends and family, get in a game and have fun in the Ratchet universe. We’re working hard to capture the feeling of fighting through amazing battles with other players, whether they are on the couch next to you or playing online half-a-world away.

Our official reveal happened at the PlayStation Press Conference during gamescom in Cologne, Germany. We will be following up with a panel at Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle on September 4. There, I’ll be joined by other Insomniacs: North Carolina Production Director Shaun McCabe, Senior Writer TJ Fixman, and Senior Community Manager James Stevenson. We’ll talk about all things Ratchet (including comics and action figures), and we’ll show all of the content from our announcement.

We can’t wait to show you more of the game. We feel like the game we want to make lines up perfectly with the game our fans want to see–the time is right for Ratchet coop! Keep an eye out for more info in the coming months.

  • bananapotato

    CAN’T WAIT.

  • Day 1

    Insomniac Games, You guys rock!

  • YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is awesome !!! i hope it gets Move support , im getting it day 1

  • True R&C fans have been begging for a competitive R&C game for years now and you drop by a game which looks like it was made for children?

    I really thought Crack in Time would have competitive multiplayer, and how great it would be to use custom constructo weapons online but you failed to deliver on any multiplayer.

    I’ve been loyal to this franchise since the 1st Ratchet & Clank was released on the PS2 but this will be the 1st title I won’t be picking up.

    I thought Insomniac was finally going to start listening to the fans for once when you failed to deliver with Resistance 2. I’ve never been so disappointed to be a Insomniac fan more than today.

  • Me and my girlfriend are going nuts over this. Why does it have to be another 2011 title! We need some more 2010 games.

  • Insomniac said that they’d reveal 1 last PS exclusive game, yet R&C and Resistance 3 were revealed. ..does that mean that Resistance 3 is a multiplatfo—…nahh. it couldn’t be…

  • EmperorKorea

    Is a full retail game? Will the game be called Ratchet & Clank Future in NA?

  • That looks like crazy fun. Crazy, silly fun.

  • I wanna see what exactly makes Nefarious a good guy in the game

    Don’t get me wrong, you’re absolutely right about him being a good player character for the comedic potential, but I really want to see what the justification is

  • BurntOrange32

    omg omg omg

  • this is so far away!

  • likedatkilla

    I JUST WANT TO SEE THE RESISTANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I’ll have to see more. Maybe it’ll change my initial snapshot judgement based on one trailer and a premise but as of now I’m not liking it. I’m a huge R&C fan but this just seems lame to me.

  • johnnyblades

    Looks like a lot of fun, Congrats Insomniac NC on your first title. Looking forward to getting my hands on it.

  • Seeing_Red_Again

    Awesome, seriously can’t wait. Been waiting for a R&C with online for PS3

  • wow how awsome is that? this is gonna be great!!!

  • This should be fun.Looking foward to playing some online co-op!

  • Why fall make it a spring or summer release

  • So…frakin’….excited!

  • Looks pretty good, I want some info on Resistance 3 as well though.

  • Not sure how I feel about this being co-op focused but in the end it’s a new Ratchet & Clank so I’m definitely buying it.

    Can we get the Resistance 3 teaser trailer on here please?

  • Co-op?

    Play as Nefarious?!

    I’m in.

  • Looks interesting, but when I saw the title (All 4 One), I thought it was going to be HD remixes of the first four PS2 Ratchet & Clank games. I’m still hoping for that some day…

  • Awesome!

  • Whats the story in this (why is Dr. Nefarious in the team?)? Is the any more characters playable (like Smuggler)?

  • Super pumped. AWESOMESAUCE.

  • Bludelite1974

    I can’t wait to get this…looks awsum!!! :3

  • O……….M……….G Finally co-op cant wait:)

  • This game has always been super ultra lame to me. I want Resistance 3 not this dumb kids game. >:O

  • @InFaMoUs1- are you seriously wanting multiplayer in Ratchet and Clank?? How would that work? What “fans” requested this? P.S. 14 COD4 crackheads who want multiplayer in EVERYTHING don’t count.

    It’s comment like these why every developer is tagging multiplayer and taking away from SP.

  • I guess co-op was demanded from some players. I am more of single player guy myself. Congrats to those who finally have it.

    But I must ask, Dr Nefarious is part of the co-op group? Interesting.
