Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is billed as Sony’s big PS5 exclusive for the first half of 2021. To some, Insomniac’s latest may appear to be just a better looking version of 2016’s excellent Ratchet and Clank for the PS4, however there’s a whole lot more to it. IGN India spoke to Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart game director Mike Daly to find out.

When it came to making Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Insomniac knew it had the franchise’s legacy to consider. “We knew for gameplay, that there was a couple of core elements of the Ratchet DNA that we wanted to preserve,” says Daly. “Fortunately, we have a lot of successful examples to look back on from the past.”

It was crucial for the team to focus on the game’s diverse and novel arsenal, so a lot of attention was placed on this aspect of it. “[A] majority of time spent in gameplay is in combat,” he says. “So we want every single weapon to be possible to be a favorite, it's got to be a 10 in some way.”

    I'm a bit confused what I should do for user/vote relationship. Should it be a one to many from user or a one to one?
  • A @ Augment:
    So that a user can only vote once per thread
  • PGen98 @ PGen98:
    I want to say it's one to one, but in all honesty I'm a bit fuzzy there. I can recommend JoyFreak's sister site AdminIntel - Admin & Webmaster Resource where there are lots for people of varying degrees of expertise with development, you likely can get a far more precise answer there!
