Insomniac Games has released the first trailer to their upcoming PS4 exclusive re-imagining of Rachet & Clank, a game that will be released alongside the movie in 2016. Check out the trailer below for some very impressive in-game visuals. Rachet & Clank will be running at 1080p and at 30FPS on the PS4.

The studio is really using the power found inside of the PlayStation 4, with the new game being a "re-imagining" of the original Rachet & Clank from 2002. It has been revised so that it will fall into the storyline of the movie, with the origin story being the basis of the movie. We have updated controls, new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all new Crank gameplay, boss fights, new flight sequences, and so much more.

There are quite a few new weapons in the game, with a new Pixelizer being a new weapon that transforms enemies into explosive 8-bit pixels. The usual favorites like the dance party-inducing Groovitron, and wise-cracking robotic bodyguard Mr Zurkon, also return. There's also an 8-minute PS4 gameplay video that you can check out above.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
