You can still take the PS4 game for free if you hurry[[[[Update: Insomniac moves fast! 60fps update for Ratchet & Clank on PS5 is live ahead of schedule. Just update your PS4 game to 1.08 and enjoy it – there are “no settings to change” in a menu.]
In a move as a PS5 owner Ratchet & Clank fans had requested, Insomniac Games will update the 2016 PlayStation 4 title Ratchet & Clank to hit 60 frames per second when played on a PlayStation 5. The free update is scheduled for release in April, which oh shit, is already almost here.
Ratchet & Clank (2016) can be played in 60 FPS on PS5 after a new update in April! As part of the Play at Home promotion, download the game for free now through 3/31. # RatchetPS4 https://t.co/Iw6CMNByFU pic.twitter.com/VEFiW3IMWK

When asked if there will be any additional DualSense integration, Insomniac only pointed to the upcoming one Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Between the free gift for Play At Home 2021 and now this update, it’s clear that they want to update everyone and roll right into the new PS5 game in June.
If you have not already done so, you can grab the free copy of Ratchet & Clank by March 31.
I wish I had not done that just gone back to platinum this sucker given how much the frame rate stood for me until I adjusted to it (and even then). That said, I really enjoyed my time with the game, so I can not complain. Although the PS4 re-performance is less than ideal from a series’ broad point of view, there are not many games like it right now – which is a big reason why I look forward to Rift apart so much.
More of these performance updates at 60 frames per second for PS4 games on PS5, thanks! Who is next?
