Insomniac Games has announced they the studio plans on updating the 2016 version of Ratchet and Clank to support 60FPS on the PS5. This means the game will run at 4K 60FPS once the update has been released. Insomniac Games last updated the game back when the PS4 Pro released in order to patch in a 4K checkerboard rendering method to support the super-boosted PS4 console.
Keep in mind that Ratchet and Clank is currently free until tomorrow, 31 March 2021 through the PlayStation Play At Home initiative. This means that all users who own the game will get the upgrade when it releases in April. Of course, you will need to own a PS5 in order to get the boost.
The Ratchet and Clank PS5 upgrade is good news for gamers especially due to the upcoming release of Ratchet and Clank: A Rift Apart which is set to debut in June. Hopefully, Insomniac Games has even more in store to celebrate the game’s launch.
Ratchet & Clank (2016) will be playable in 60 FPS on PS5 after a new update in April! As part of the Play at Home campaign, download the game for free now through 3/31. #RatchetPS4https://t.co/Iw6CMNByFU pic.twitter.com/VEFiW3IMWK
