Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One gamescom Trailer

Brandon Winfrey's Avatar Posted by Community Intern, Insomniac Games

Fun fact of the day: Trailers used to be shown at the end of a movie. Hence the name trailer. Because it trailed the mov- you know what, you probably got it. Eventually, the marketing people woke up and realized that no one sticks around after a film, so they moved it to the beginning. However, the name “trailer” stuck. Probably because the name “beginnier” is lamer than my 17th birthday (it involved a gluten-free cake and a Pauly Shore marathon – you do the math).

Nowadays, marketing people have gotten even savvier. You can watch a trailer – on the internet! Now you don’t have to drain your 401k watching Jason Statham punch various objects and/or people just to get a glimpse at the trailer for whatever beacon of enjoyable entertainment that’s on the horizon. For instance, just by pressing that little triangle directly north of this text – you can see a new trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. In it, you’ll get a taste of all the mischievous co-op action that awaits you in our latest entry in this esteemed franchise. You can play nice with your three other friends, sure…but who doesn’t have the occasional urge to launch one of them off a cliff? It’s all in good (and sometimes painful) fun!

Plus, you get a peek at the dynamically dysfunctional group made up of Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious. These guys aren’t exactly the closest of friends, so pitting them to work together produces an endless stream of not-so-amiable (albeit hilarious) banter. They’re like the Odd Couple – only there are four of them and they have explosive weaponry – and of course one of them is an evil robot.

So go ahead – click it – and be trailerized.

Done being trailerized? Sweet! Now be sure to pick up Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One when it releases on October 18th. You can also register at to get some free PSN Avatars, Home t-shirts and Static Theme! Also, be sure to follow Insomniac Games’ Twitter and Facebook page for all the latest information on the game. And who knows – we could even drop some more fun facts of the day. Knowledge get!

    The Plumber = One of my favorite characters from the series. I’m so happy he’s back! I’m sure you are, too!

Ratchet and Clank HD Collection? And I’m excited for this!

Pauly Shore marathon? I always imagined that’s what hell is like! I’d rather have my teeth pulled without anesthesia.

Not to change the channels too much but Crackle is a great product from Sony. Why is it not in the XMB? Make a little App for it so it’s right in the same area as Netflix, cause now that Netflix is charging extra for Instant Streaming content I’m sure more PS3 users would go to Crackle which is FREE!

I’m glad more games are coming out where 4 people can play at once :)

I think its better localy than mutliplayer on games this but they can both be fun!

Day one purchase and I have Mr Zurkon bonus pre-order. It will probably be a lot better than people think.

Amazing trailer. Can’t wait for the game!
Please release it on the PSN

Looking forward to any Ratchet and Clank game after A Crack in Time, that was hell of an awesome game!

Airwalkinman17 said:

Awesome trailer! 4 player offline/online mix and match FTW people!!! Can’t wait. Get a group of gamers together, this game, and BAM- INSTAPARTY!!!!!!!!! :D

    Oh ya! Maybe we should have named it “Ratchet & Clank: INSTAPARTY!” :D

tazmania91 said:

August 17th, 9:30 am

Would it be possible to create our own levels, like LittleBigPlanet ? If not, could it be possible to do it via a patch or DLC ?

Zezzler said:

August 17th, 9:43 am

For some reason the Captcha is not showing. I’ve tried everything from clearing my cashe to my cookies, and it still is just showing up as a broken image. Is there something wrong with the site or is it an issue on my end still?

Oooh, is that the Joy Formidable I hear. Nice song choice, Insomniac. Excited for All 4 One.

TarzanSr said:

August 17th, 10:22 am

Wow at first I thought this game would be really bad, but now I am actually kind of excited for this game. Maybe I missed it in the article but what is the release date? And will it be available on the PS Store like later (After it’s been in retails for months?).

    Cristian Cardona said:

    August 17th, 10:33 am

    You can insert $5 at a retailer to pre order it =)
    We’ll take the other $55 + tax on the 18th of October ;)

Cough…now that I’ve gotten that out of the way: The Plumber’s back! I’m a little concerned at how close that wrench was to Quark’s face though.

Also, would you give your art team mad props for me please. Every Ratchet & Clank game looks gorgeous, and not just from a technical sense. The art direction in each game is superb. Some of the best atmosphere around.

Enjoy your day Insomniacs.

    Will do! The North Carolina studio has really outdone themselves to create a beautiful and unique art direction for the game. Thanks for the support!

My gamer dream has always been to see a ratchet and clank game where one of the planets you visist is earth. It would be cool to see something like that! Anyways this game is day one for me.

I was a little disappointed when you guys announced this game instead of another beautiful single player one but this actually feels like another Ratchet and Clank game and looks even better. As the months went on I kinda started watching the videos and started following this game and this actually looks like a great installment to the series! I love co-op so much, whether it be Borderlands, Uncharted, or Portal 2. Co-op really has made a comeback and I can’t wait to try this out. I wonder how long the fun will last though? I don’t want anything spoiled, but will there be something to keep us playing when the credits roll? I’m a little bit eager for this game now. I don’t think I can manage to buy this day one right now, just like with Resistance 3 (I want that necklace!) . The wacky animations, loud yelling, and lush environments make this a definite buy for me.

– You are one of my favorite video game companies, keep up the good work Insomniac.

Who doesn’t love free stuff? I tried registering on the Ratchet and Clank site but the Captcha seems to be missing. I’ll try again tomorrow?

ReptileHand said:

August 17th, 1:05 pm

Uh oh, now when I click *Register* is says I’ve already registered and I gives me the Promotional Code. Problem is, there’s no promotional code there! it just shows two Quote symbols D:

Sorry if this has been asked before. Will this game support multiple PSN logins. (Each player with his own PSN ID)?

gamepro300 said:

August 17th, 2:21 pm

Yeah the website is pretty messed up. I couldnt see the capcha then i exited out and reloaded the page and it said thanks for registering and gave me a blank promotinal code. Any way this could be fixed? I was really hopying to get the free stuff.

SoleAddict23 said:

August 17th, 2:27 pm

I love Ratchet & Clank games! and this game has the great, all powerful four player offline co-op multiplayer! and even better offline and online mix! if this game is just as good or better than the previous R&C’s which I have no doubt it will be, I will definetly buy! as long as it doesn’t have online pass that is.

Yes, multiple PSN logins would be great and are a must!

August 17th, 6:26 pm

This trailer literally made me “laugh out loud”. I love how this r&c game focuses more on hummer and game play than the last few games (not that they weren’t awesome). I’m for sure getting this when it comes out asap. Keep up the good work insomniac!!!

Zeo784 said:

August 17th, 7:04 pm

Man this trailer just made me want this game even more and I didn’t think that possible.

Rival_31 said:

August 17th, 7:21 pm

Trailers like this make me sad.

Only because it reminds me of how the game isn’t out yet.
