Insomniac Goes Into the Nexus in Ratchet and Clank Video

Take a look at this guided playthrough of the Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus demo from Gamescom alongside Creative Director Brian Allgeier.

The walkthrough introduces us to a bunch of new weapons and mechanics at play in the upcoming downloadable adventure (also to be made available on disc). Gravity will play a big part in level traversal, as well as powering some of Ratchet’s weaponry. The Vortex Gun is a perfect example, and creates a small singularity that traps enemies up in the air while Ratchet deals with them.

We also get a quick glimpse at the Nightmare Box, which randomly drops a terrifying decoy onto ground. Upgrading the Box also enables some of these fearsome aides to attack.

Clank also gets a few moments in the video, and we get to see how his portion of Into the Nexus will play. His levels appear reminiscent of VVVVVV with the way you can manipulate his jumps to traverse traps and hazards.

Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank series has been a favorite of ours for years, and we can’t wait to step back into those familiar shoes once more later this year.
