Ratchet & Clank return to the PS3 today with Insomniac Games’ latest, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. The four-player co-op adventure is set after the events in A Crack in Time, with Ratchet and Clank retired from the hero business and escorting their old pal Qwark, now Galactic President, to an awards ceremony when one of Dr. Nefarious’ plans go awry. Players will be able to control Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, or Dr. Nefarious as they try to make their way off of the planet Magnus and away from the clutches of Ephemeris, the Creature Collector.
All 4 One was designed from the ground up for co-op play, with bonuses for linked multi-character attacks and puzzles requiring several hands (and/or feet). There are some mini-games as well, including a race to collect the most bolts. Stereoscopic 3D is also supported, as is an online activation system, with new copies including a single-use Online Pass activation code that unlocks multiplayer content.

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One allows players to solve the mystery and explore the Ratchet & Clank universe with up to three other players. Brave adventurers can even face the alien world of Planet Magnus alone in single-player, accompanying the player with an AI companion. Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One supports any configuration of cooperative play including offline same-screen co-op as well as online co-op where players can team up with other heroes across the country. Stereoscopic 3D brings the excitement, story and robust Ratchet universe out of the television and right into the living room giving the entire family a 3D-CG movie experience that they can play at home.
