Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will incorporate elements of tower-defense
It's been almost two months since Insomniac Games unveiled the newest Ratchet & Clank title, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, but alas, aside from the fact that it will invoke the feel of classic R&C, we know nothing else about the upcoming PSN title.
Actually, that's not true anymore. On the PlayStation Blog yesterday, Insomniac's senior community manager James Stevenson revealed some new details. One of the most noticeable of these details is the inclusion of a tower-defense element that has players building a base and defending it against enemy invasions using the "ultimate Ratchet & Clank arsenal". This should please those who'd like to see more strategy in their R&C experience.
Stevenson also revealed that Full Frontal Assault will feature a new villain, one who has it out for Captain Qwark in particular. Players will be able to choose between Ratchet, Clank, and Qwark as they take on an alien army throughout five levels set on three different planets. The game will also include split-screen and online co-op, meaning no one has to go it alone (and we game-folk know how dangerous it can be to go alone, right?).
Closing off, Stevenson promises that the game will come with even more goodies, such as upgrades, unlockable content, and an online mode which will be revealed at a later date.
Look for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault sometime this fall. If you don't want to wait that long to get your Lombax fix, you can check out the Ratchet & Clank Collection, which will bring the series' first three games to the PlayStation 3 on August 28.
