Insomniac Games is keeping themselves busy this year with development on two titles – Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus for the PS3 and Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One. The latter wasn’t at Gamescom, but the former got a little love from Sony.
Despite not showing off the game at its press conference, Sony shared a new trailer for Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus at Gamescom. The 5-minute trailer is a refreshing change from other trailers shown at Gamescom as it’s nothing but gameplay.
In the demo, Insomniac says the latest Ratchet and Clank title is returning to the basics instead of the experimental gameplay of the last two titles. In other words, players can expect to platform and shoot their way a number of colorful worlds.
The demo also shows off some new weapons, including the Winterizer. It turns enemies into their own unique snowmen while playing holiday music. It adds a touch of humor to a game that the developers say will be a tad darker than past Ratchet and Clank titles in both its story and presentation.
As an aside, it’s exciting to see a Ratchet and Clank game looking this good. The past few games on the PS3 were no visual slouches, but it looks like the team at Insomniac have really outdone themselves with this one.
