The State of Play in April 2021 was mainly focused on one game: Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. With 15 minutes of gameplay, Sony and Insomniac Games have shown how much good they are doing with this exclusive.

Technically yesterday evening the free upgrade for PS5 and PS4 of Subnautica: Below Zero and the PlayStation 4 and PS5 version of Among Us were also announced, but it was clearly the adventure of Ratchet & Clank that attracted all the attention.
