Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus out November 12

$30 PlayStation 3 game arriving next month; preorder bonuses revealed.


Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will launch exclusively for PlayStation 3 on November 12, Insomniac Games announced today. The game will sell for $30.

Into the Nexus is an epilogue to the Future games (Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time) and features a new story and arsenal of weapons and gadgets.

The game will be "shorter" than other entries in the action game series, and this was intentional, Insomniac Games community lead James Stevenson said.

"Some of you have asked us why we made a shorter Ratchet game. The truth is, we relished this ability to tie a bow on the PS3 era of Ratchet with a shorter title," he said. "All of us love the Ratchet universe--and after 12 years developing the series, it feels like a very close friend. We have a lot of stories to tell, some longer, some shorter. This one felt just right."

Insomniac also announced that those who preorder Into the Nexus will receive Pyronox Armor for Ratchet, which provides 5 percent damage reduction. In addition, preorders placed through Amazon will receive a "huge package" of Ratchet & Clank-themed content for PlayStation Home.
