At Gamescom two days ago, Insomniac Games revealed their next title – Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One
Up until now, the game has been a one-player free-for-all where you play as one character at a time, but this time the game is all about co-operative play as you now control 4 players at once: the usual Ratchet and Clank are now joined by fan favourites Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious. This new arrangement means the camera is no longer positioned behind Ratchet, but is now a Director’s cam, constantly adjusting so as to frame all four characters. The camera change doesn’t just make sense, it opens up new opportunites for more dramatic shots and scenery. All 4 players will have to work together to complete various puzzles throughout the game.
Although Insomniac Games haven’t spoke much of the storyline, I’m sure there’s a damn good reason why these particular heroes are working together.
The game is still in progress, but set for release in the fall of 2011.
New trailer after the jump.
