Insomniac Games has released new information today about Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault that finally starts to make clear the game’s full shape and scope. Conceived in part as a celebration of the tenth anniversary of everyone’s favorite Lombax and robot duo, the company has previously revealed that R&C:FFA would mark a return to the third-person camera and weapons driven gameplay that made the series famous. Now it seems that the game will also bring something new to the table in the form of tower defense inspired gameplay sequences. The Senior Community Manager of Insomniac Games, James Stevenson, had the following to say about this addition:
Stevenson also made it clear that these tower defense sequences would not be the sole focus of Full Frontal Assault and that players could expect plenty of classic R&C moments while “confront(ing) an alien army across five levels set on three different planets.” Players will be able to play as either Ratchet, Clank, or the infamous Captain Qwark and it is apparently a desire for revenge against the latter that leads the brand new main baddie being introduced in FFA to attack the trio. Stevenson also revealed that RA:FFA will feature both split screen and online cooperative gameplay, an additional separate online mode to be revealed at a later date, and all the upgrades, extra character skins and unlockable content that fans have come to expect from the series. Check out some new screenshots of the game below:
