Gotta say that I am pretty happy to hear about this, I love the R&C franchise and can’t wait for this one. As someone who admittedly slept on this franchise for a long time, I feel its my responsibility to convert others who might possible be making the same mistake. Take my word for it, this is going to be one of the best games of the year. Period. Sony has just announced that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time will be available in the U.S. on Tuesday, October 27.
If that’s not enough, they will be offering some cool Ratchet & Clank goodies for those who pre-order their copy of the game. Here’s a highlight of some of the items you’ll receive when you pre-order Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time from participating retailers:
- Discovery Package – Explore the Insomniac Moon with a special level that resembles the layout of Insomniac Games’ studio offices. A fan favorite, the Moon is filled with content that didn’t quite make the final game, sort of like deleted scenes on DVDs. You can earn this unlockable on your own, but Insomniac certainly won’t make it easy for ya!
- Power Package – Up your arsenal with an exclusive weapon skin for one of Ratchet’s weapons along with extra hit points and Ratchet’s brand new Cryo Mine Glove.
- Bolt Package– Bolster your bolt count with 5,000 free bolts care of Ratchet’s most bolt-centric power-ups, the Bolt Magnetizer and Box Basher.
- Space Package– Drift off into space with an exclusive hot rod skin for Ratchet’s ship, the Aphelion, along with 5,000 free bolts and an exclusive Ratchet & Clank PlayStation Home Avatar skin
*You will notice that the back cover is blank, originally it wasn’t but apparently it had lots of unreleased game details on it and Sony pulled that version.
