Insomniac Games has announced through its official Twitter account that the 2016 installment of Ratchet & Clank will receive an update that will allow the game to run at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5, twice the images per second it runs on PS4.
The update will be free and will not increase the resolution at which it runs, only the FPS, which is appreciated. The update is especially appreciated since the game is part of the Play At Home initiative, in which Sony gives away games of its own to support its community on days of quarantine and limited resources for leisure.
Ratchet & Clank (2016) will be playable in 60 FPS on PS5 after a new update in April! As part of the Play at Home campaign, download the game for free now through 3/31. #RatchetPS4https://t.co/Iw6CMNByFU pic.twitter.com/VEFiW3IMWK

The game can be downloaded for free from the web or from a PS4 and PS5 until March 31. From then on, the other 10 games will arrive to make a total of 13 titles that Sony gives away in quarantine times. The first were Uncharted Collection and Journey, then it was this Ratchet & Clank and finally the other ten.
This game is followed by Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which will arrive exclusively on PS5 in June and will use all the power of the PS5 and the speed of the SSD to offer real-time dimension changes. The title looks spectacular and will run at 4K 30 FPS or 60 FPS and lower resolution.
Starting today, you can download a selection of 9 free games as part of #PlayAtHome:
– Enter the Gungeon
– Rez Infinite
– The Witness
– Astro Bot Rescue Mission
– Paper Beast
– PlayStation Latam (@PlayStation_LA) March 25, 2021
Therefore the delivery of 2016 is a good start if you want to buy Rift Apart later, the update that “unlocks” the full potential of PS5 with this game will arrive in April, so you can activate it in product in your PlayStation Network account now ( before April 31) and enjoy the patch on your PS5 at a later day.
The saga has always belonged to Insomniac Games (which is now owned by Sony) and is in for a great time, so it’s worth checking out if you haven’t tried it yet.
