Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One exists, adds four-player co-op

Shares

Great news for intergalactic Lombax fans. Earlier this hour at Gamescom, developer Insomniac Games lifted the veil on its forthcoming, co-op centric Ratchet and Clank title for the PS3, entitled Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One.

Revealed with in-game footage during the tail end of Sony's Gamescom conference, Ratchet and Clank's next outing is expanding on its cartoony, intergalactic roots by allowing up to 4 gamers take on the action at once via local and online co-op play. Insomniac's Ted Price was on hand at Sony's conference to show off some fairly polished gameplay videos which featured Ratchet, Clank, Dr. Nefarious and Captain Quark teaming up to tackle a variety of platforming sections, environment puzzles and top-down Gauntlet-esque boss battles. Highlights of the all-too-brief video included the gang linking up for to slingshot through the colorful stages, cramming into a four-barreled cannon and generally making life miserable for each other (as crowded co-op games tend to go).

Excited? Hope you don't mind waiting. Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One will be available in Fall 2011.

    I was still a Ratchet and Clank fanboy last I checked, so yeah, I'm going to get this.

    they should have made All 4 One like the god of war collection. the four original ratchet and clank games (excluding size matters) remastered in HD, that sounds incredible to me. i was too young and could never beat them. i think that would be better than 4 player co-op in my opinion

    I bought A Crack in Time as the trailers and your love for Ratchet and Clank convinced me, but I couldn't like it. The Calnk puzzles were great but too few but I just couldn't like it. This looks new and different though, so best wait and see.

    So this is what Insomniac's North Carolina studio's been busy with...

    The first Ratchet and Clank game I have seen that doesn't make me want a PS3. Seriously, what happened to the potty humor and hilarious random characters in the original games? I want an Up Your Arsenal esque-game, but for the Xbox!

    I know one shouldn't be afraid of change but...I'm scared.

    It looks like the ps3s deadlocked, if a bit cartoony.. Still want though!!

    i really hope u dont have to have 4 people to play some parts like little big planet, cuz none of my friends have a ps3 and it would suck

    4 Things: 1 - How is Qwark still alive? 2 - How is Nefarious still alive? 3 - Why is Nefairous working with teh other 3? 4 - What is the appeal of 4P co-op?

    Why has there been so much spam comments about some online cloth selling site lately? GR has been infiltrated by evil spammers!!

    that looks pretty alright, and I didn't see any of the crowding or commisserating you speak of Mr. Bradford.
  • VaneTrago - August 17, 2010 10:33 p.m.

    Me too, because that way at all non-essential moments I can ditch you people and have some REAL fun.
  • SumthingStupid - August 17, 2010 10:23 p.m.

    Wonderful, I can't wait to enjoy the colourful innocence of Ratchet & Clank whilst being called a f*g by an 11 year old online......
  • dizzybd10 - August 17, 2010 9:08 p.m.

    OMG YES!
  • garnsr - August 17, 2010 9:05 p.m.

    This isn't PSN, is it? It looks like a regular R&C game that for some reason needs to have four characters all the time. Maybe better than Deadlocked, but I'm not sure.
  • Metroidhunter32 - August 17, 2010 9:05 p.m.

    looks like a cheap ass party game.
  • GamerGamer - August 17, 2010 8:50 p.m.

    I hope rachet gets more items then just a wrench
  • oufour - August 17, 2010 8:49 p.m.
