Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One has been announced by Sony at Gamescom 2010 as the newest game in the long-running core Ratchet & Clank series!
As the title suggests, the game is a four-player cooperative adventure where teamwork is the name of the game! The title will support both online and offline co-op for up to four-players with a drop-in drop-out system as Ratchet, Clank, Nefarious and Qwark put their skills together!
The game has been in development since late last year and promises to give players everything they love about the Ratchet series but this time in a way that can be enjoyed with friends!
Developer Insomniac Games’ Chad Dezern explains,
“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.”
Here is the exciting trailer from the Sony press conference.
