Sony PlayStation, Insomniac Games and Nixxes Software are bringing Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart to Steam as Sony continue bringing more console games to PC.

The interesting thing here is that their feature list mentioned how it will have many graphics quality options so you can tailor the experience to "a wide range of devices, all the way from high-end PCs to portable PC gaming devices" — Steam Deck anyone? Hopefully this will work nicely at release with Proton on Steam Deck and desktop Linux. It will have a pretty wide array of options like NVIDIA DLSS 3, AMD FSR 2, Intel XeSS, Ray Tracing, ultra-wide support and much more. Sounds like they're really going all-out on this one.

Such an awesome time to be a gamer on PC, seeing many more previously console exclusive games arriving. Will this be something you'll be playing on desktop Linux or Steam Deck? Must admit it looks pretty good and the previous PlayStation reviews of it have been quite glowing.

You can follow it on Steam where it's available for pre-order.

Note: the article originally stated it released on July 29th which was incorrect, it launches July 26th. Apologies on the error.

Interesting project. Since I had my ISO premade from the time I played Jak 1 on the PCSX2 emulator a few years back it was easy to setup too. Overall it seems to run way better than it did emulated.
While this is nice to see as I always champion the end of contract exclusivity (be it console or something like Epic Store), I admit this one wasn't one I was waiting to see. I remember playing one of the preceding games years ago and this one looks perhaps solid, but isn't at the top of my list.

While I'm glad that Sony is bringing these games to PC and has chosen Steam, it is a bit annoying that they are still treating PC players as a tertiary platform at best. Long delays between release on their console and PC, way more than technical necessity is grating especially if prices are still akin to a full priced new game. I had hoped that once they saw games sell quite well on Steam both in short term and over the long tail, they'd start with concurrent releases but that doesn't seem to be the case and we're still lacking many titles long released on PS5.

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut is one of my personal sticking points. The game has been out for quite a long time and for the past couple of years rumors of PC ports "just around the corner" have been flowing but nothing yet. The Director's Cut expansion adds quite a bit of new content and the game (both base and expansion) include a 4 player co-op alternate mode which would work very well on Steam. There was a rumor that the July release would be either this Ratchet and Clank game or Ghost of Tsushima so its a bit more disappointing, at least for me. Hopefully it will arrive soon.

Of course, the lack of concurrent releases is another problem. Both Spiderman Remastered and Spiderman: Miles Morales coming to PC last year after a couple years of PS4/PS5 exclusivity did very, very well. I was hoping that Sony would see there was a market, but this fall's upcoming Spiderman 2 sequel is releasing solely for PS5 and as far as I can tell its not a "one month PS5, next month PC" sort of thing for technical QA reasons. Sony just keeps insisting on focusing on their platform top to bottom, rather than admitting that some people may never buy a PS5 but would be happy to buy certain games were they available on PC (ideally via Linux friendly store platforms like Steam). Ah well, still every little bit is a step in the right direction; I do wish that the success of previous ones would quicken the pace though
