Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is coming to PC in July
The Lombax and his robot pal are jumping from PS5 to PC
One of the best PS5 games, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, is makings its way to PC on July 26.
The PC port is being handled by Nixxes Software, one of Sony’s in-house studios, and features several improvements over the PS5 version of the game. The Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart PC port will include ultrawide display support, unlocked frame rates, improved ray tracing and ray traced shadows, and performance-enhancing technologies like Nvidia’s DLSS 3 and AMD’s FSR 2.0.
If you hook up a PS5 DualSense controller to your PC using a wired connection, you can also experience the game’s haptic feedback and dynamic trigger effects.
After a long wait, Sony finally added Ratchet and Clank to the PlayStation Plus Games Catalog this month, allowing PS Plus Premium and Extra subscribers to play the game at no extra cost.

🆓 Ratchet and Clank is one of the best PS5 games and is free to PS Plus Premium and Extra subscribers
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart takes advantage of all the PS5’s unique features. It’s one of the many PS5 120fps games you can play if you have a compatible display, and also one of the best-looking PS5 games with ray tracing support.
Ratchet’s planet-hopping adventure is one of the last exclusive PS5 games that hasn’t already made its way to PC. Sony has recently ported over Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Returnal, The Last of Us Part 1, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales to PC, as it looks to benefit from more sales.
We probably don’t have long to wait until Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 follow suit, which are the remaining big titles that haven’t made the jump from PS5 to PC just yet.
