Yeah, it’s been officially announced on the Official Blog. Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time will be released on October 27th. Also, you can get a peek at what new PS3 covers look like above.
There’s also a bunch of pre-order goodies if you get them from participating retailers, and these include:
‘Discovery Package’ – Explore the Insomniac Moon with a special level that resembles the layout of Insomniac Games’ studio offices. A fan favorite, the Moon is filled with content that didn’t quite make the final game, sort of like deleted scenes on DVDs. You can earn this unlockable on your own, but Insomniac certainly won’t make it easy for ya! Gamestop
‘Power Package’ – Up your arsenal with an exclusive weapon skin for one of Ratchet’s weapons along with extra hit points and Ratchet’s brand new Cryo Mine Glove. Best Buy
‘Bolt Package’ – Bolster your bolt count with 5,000 free bolts care of Ratchet’s most bolt-centric power-ups, the Bolt Magnetizer and Box Basher. Amazon
‘Space Package’ – Drift off into space with an exclusive hot rod skin for Ratchet’s ship, the Aphelion, along with 5,000 free bolts and an exclusive Ratchet & Clank PlayStation Home Avatar skin. Game Crazy
No word on whether those are going to be retail-specific or if they’re going to be available for all pre-orders. As for other news, at PAX this week (Friday, to be exact), Insomniac Games will be holding a little presentation at the Unicorn Theatre from 1:30 to 2:30PM, where Creative Director Brian Allgeier will show off the history of Ratchet and Clank weapons, as well as unveil some new ones, so if you’re in the area, check it out!
Also, as a side note, at 12:30AM on Spike TV (during GameTrailers TV) this Thursday, they will be airing a “special” cinematic that will be available on GameTrailers.com this weekend in case you missed it. There will be more news in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for that as well.
I updated the list as to what retailer gets which bonus pack. Thanks to Kicks for pointing out that they are, indeed, retail specific.
