Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart sees a reduction in game installation size

It’s a useful feature, as games tend to take up more and more disk space, especially on their release, so this time the installation size for ‘Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’ has been reduced, and now revealed.

The next sci-fi action platformer had a reduced installation size of 33GB, revealed by the PlayStation Game Size Twitter account, an account dedicated to informing fans of the size of the games so they can plan storage management ahead of time. .

The title download will be zipped, about 9GB smaller than advertised, taking advantage of the techniques previously used in Insomniac’s Marvel Remastered Spider-Man. Insomniac’s own community director, James Stevenson, also mentioned the size of the installation in a tweet.

Fans were surprised by the game’s smaller size, given the high visual fidelity of its extremely dense action footage. Stevenson responded to a comment by saying, “Sizes are getting smaller on native PS5 games due to compression and SSD techniques!”

In recent news from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, several developers responded to the release of a new gameplay trailer praising the game’s look. Drew Murray, who recently returned to Insomniac Games as Principal Designer but didn’t work on the development of Rift Apart, said: β€œThis is the most beautiful video game ever made. Point.” Scott Lowe, a gaming industry communications professional who had previously worked at Activision and Naughty Dog said, β€œI don’t think I’ve ever seen a modern AAA game where gameplay hits the same visual fidelity bar as these ‘cinematics’.

And more recently, Insomniac Games has also seen its previously Xbox-exclusive title Sunset Overdrive registered by Sony. Sunset Overdrive is an action-adventure game that was first released for Xbox One in October 2014 and later made it to PC in 2018, before Sony acquired Insomniac Games as an original PlayStation studio in 2019.
