News is still pouring out of Cologne, Germany and this new entry into the beloved series happens to be a part of it. All 4 One is a departure from the single-player oriented games from Insomniacs past and focuses specifically on co-op play, both on-and-offline. It has been in production since January of last year, according Chad Dezern the Studio Director at Insomniac Games’ North Carolina studio. Now, along with the Ratchet and his side-kick Clank, Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious are along for the zany platforming ride that is expected in other games of the series.
Chad goes on to say that this is “drop-in/drop-out Ratchet & Clank title” which I am taking to mean that you can simply hop into anyones open game and join in the fun. Though details on actual gameplay were sparse there are sure to be more announcements about All 4 One at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle on September 4. I have always enjoyed the Ratchet and clank series and this looks to be a welcome addition, though I still prefer to play single player, if that is even an option. Check out the video for more details.
