Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is the first exclusive PS5 game in the series. This game brings many new mechanisms and concepts that need to be experimented with using the iconic duo, plus the new character Rivet, and is easily the most interesting June release for every PS5 owner. In this guide, we’ll explain exactly when you can play the game, including the exact timing, when you can preload it, and the file dimensions.
Release date and exact launch time
Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart hits June 11th. If you pre-order the game, you will be able to play it as soon as the disc gets into your hands. However, the exact time of issue is a minute after midnight (00:01) on that day. This is relative to your local time zone, so if you want to play as soon as possible, you must stay awake until midnight when the game is unlocked.
Where can you pre-load the game?
You can preload Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart for your PS5 right now. The only requirement is to pre-order the game from PlayStation Store. Once you do, the game will download to your console. When you select it, a timer with a countdown to June 11 will appear. After completing this timer, you will be able to play the game without having to download anything. However, it is possible that one patch will be released closer to the release.
We recommend pre-loading for anyone planning to play on the first day. It took us about four hours to pre-install our copy of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, and the download speed probably won’t be better on the day of launch. If you want to avoid this and plan to play from day one, pre-loading will help you avoid being too annoying.
What is the file size for Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart?
If you preload Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, you will download version 01.000.007. This version is 33.618 GB in size, which means you will need at least 35 GB of free space on its console to seal it. Remember that there can also be one day. If you download the game on or after June 11, the file size may be larger because at least one fix will be included in the new version.
