Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus launches in November

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will launch on November 12 in the US and November 13 in Europe. Billed as an epilogue to the R&C Future saga (Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, and A Crack in Time), the PS3 game will be available in-stores and online priced at €29.99 / $29.99.

The story sees Ratchet and Clank lost in an abandoned sector of deep space, where they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe. Reflecting its budget price, Into the Nexus will be a relatively short game, Insomniac senior community manager James Stevenson told the PlayStation Blog.

”The truth is, we relished this ability to tie a bow on the PS3 era of Ratchet with a shorter title," he said. "We have a lot of stories to tell, some longer, some shorter. This one felt just right. It’s a very polished self-contained return to the Ratchet adventures of yore. It’s impactful, too; filled with planet-hopping, guns blazing, joke-cracking Ratchet & Clank, and events happen here that will change Ratchet forever. Think of it as a small epic.”

Into the Nexus pre-order bonuses were also confirmed today. Select retailers will be offering Ratchet’s Pyronox Armor, a lightweight durable suit which offers five per cent damage-reduction. Additionally, Amazon’s US arm is offering pre-order customers a pack of R&C-themed PlayStation Home content said to value roughly $30.

    Well, it's looking like a more substantial game than Quest for Booty was anyway, which was a pretty decent game despite its length (even though, IMO, it didn't really add much.) However I think A Crack in Time had a lot of unexplored potential that hopefully this game builds on. Never got round to playing All-4-One or QForce though, but maybe one day.

    Yeah I'm thinking into the nexus is finishing off the time travel ark

    I have mixed feelings about this coming out on the PS3 instead of the PS4. On one hand, it makes total sense that Insomniac would make their last R&C game on the PS3 as a sort of last hurrah for the system. However, it's also irritating because I want to play it but I will be selling my PS3 In early to-mid November to help pay for my PS4. Consequently, I may not be able to play Into the Nexus unless I get lucky and get it day one from Gamefly. Otherwise, no go.

    Hopefully it acts as a set up for a new set of games on PS4. Proper games though, not spin-offs like All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault.
