What Was Announced?

It is getting to the point where you can’t go a day without a direct. I can’t even move house without another one popping up and getting in the way of my table-making. But, lo and behold, here we are again, with another PlayStation State of Play. Only this time it was mercifully short, focusing solely on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, with two other games getting a little nod. But, before we get ahead of ourselves, in case you missed the previous States of Play that aired earlier this year, or indeed any of the direct-style presentations, you can catch up on them here on The Game Crater. We’ve had PlayStation Indie events, Nintendo Directs, and even a Square Enix event that involved a Tomb Raider cookbook (no, seriously).

That’s enough dillydallying for now. Read on for everything announced at the State of Play today:

  • Subnautica: Below Zero got a PlayStation 5 deep dive (pun intended) that focused on the gameplay and visual enhancements made available thanks to the system’s impressive hardware. They also announced that owners of the original Subnautica on PlayStation 4 and owners of Subnautica: Below Zero on PlayStation 4 can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 versions for free.
  • Among Us unsurprisingly is coming to PlayStation 5. It even has its own set of exclusive Ratchet & Clank skins including new skins, hats and pets. It’s coming later this year.
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart got an enormous gameplay showcase that showed off some of its features, characters, worlds and weapons. If you want to know more about it, you can read our full breakdown of the gameplay trailer.
