PS5's Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Will Have 60 FPS Mode
Similar to how PS4 Pro games operated, Insomniac's sequel will give you the choice between resolution or a higher frame rate.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is coming exclusively to the PlayStation 5 sometime during its launch window, with Insomniac now confirming that the game will ship with options to either target a higher resolution or frame rate.
In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Insomniac stated that its sequel will give players the options between a 4K / 30 FPS mode and a "lower resolution" 60 FPS mode. The answer doesn't specify how much lower the higher frame rate mode will be, suggesting that Insomniac might still be trying to find the right balance between stability and raw pixel density.
This is similar to the two modes that will be present in Insomniac's other announced PS5 title, Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It will also feature two modes that target 30 FPS and 60 FPS respectively, with the difference being that both will still aim for 4K as a resolution, too. It's likely that the difference here is which additional effects each mode will present players to allow for the additional smoothness.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart closed out the two-hour Opening Night Live showcase that kicked off Gamescom this week, with an extended look at the demo initially shown off during the PS5's reveal event. If you missed it, check out our full recap of the biggest announcements from the show.
