To quote: Insomniac Games is proud to announce the release of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One in North America.
The first four-player co-op Ratchet & Clank game finds Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious captured by the mysterious Creature Collector and transported to the dangerous Planet Magnus.
The four will have to work together to survive the planet, and unravel its mysteries. Featuring a huge and upgradable weapon arsenal, All 4 One will take players on a journey through vibrant environments and breathtaking vistas, pitting you against seemingly invincible creatures and robotic minions of the Creature Collector.
The optional stereoscopic 3D support brings the 3D CG movie experience at home so you can experience Ratchet & Clank in a whole new way.
To get you even more excited - we wanted to bring you the first cinematic from the game that sets the stage for our heroes' intergalactic adventure:

113w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has made available some fresh video footage today of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One on the PS3 in co-op mode.
To quote: We're just a few days away from Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One releasing exclusively for PlayStation 3.
We hope you're looking forward to exploring Planet Magnus, upgrading your arsenal, and solving the mystery of the Creature Collector with your friends. With that in mind, we wanted to show you a sweet video we put together, highlighting the big co-op moments in the game.
It will take a team effort to steer a taxi through the vertical city streets of Luminopolis, or to coordinate the powerful turrets on the back of a massive robotic Guardian, and this video shows how players will have to work together.
Can't wait until next week to get a taste of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One? You can check out an offline four-player co-op demo of the game right now, included on specially marked Blu-Ray and Combo Pack Blu-rays of the Sony Pictures film Zookeeper, starring Kevin James. That should definitely tide you over until the full game launches on October 18th!
Also, in case you haven't heard, Target will be releasing an exclusive...
115w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a new PS3 video trailer for Ratchet & Clank All 4 One: Face the Octomoth below!
To quote: We hope you've been enjoying the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Limited Beta over the last couple of weeks, and we're excited for you to get your hands on the full game this October 18th.
Recently, we've released videos showing off the different elements of the game, including a particularly epic spot focused on the light-eating Z'Grute boss that our heroes (and villain) must battle in the city of Luminopolis.
This latest video we want to share takes place on the Aldaros Plains, one of the first areas you'll explore on Planet Magnus. This is an area of the planet where the rules of gravity seem to be bent, and floating islands of rock make up the shifting landscape. The boss here is a gigantic creature called an Octomoth.
If the name doesn't give you an immediate idea of what this fearsome creature would be like, watch the video above!
We hope you enjoyed today's video, and have your pre-order for All 4 One all ready to go for the 18th.
116w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a video trailer today showcasing the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Luminopolis Boss Battle below.
To quote: We hope you've been enjoying the Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Limited Beta. We gave out tons of codes last week, and if for some reason you haven't gotten a code to download it yet, check out the special pre-order deal we have going on with Amazon. If you pre-order from now until September 26th, you get into the beta!
Also, if you get over to RatchetAndClank.com before supplies run out, we're giving away a limited number of access codes on the homepage as well! The beta features one-to-four player online and offline co-op, as well as two segments from different locations in the game and a cross-section of the inventive arsenal you've come to expect from Ratchet & Clank games.
One of the frequent questions we get is how the evil Dr. Nefarious ended up with Ratchet, Clank, and President Qwark. We actually explain this at the beginning of the game: Ratchet, Clank and Qwark have arrived on the planet of Luminopolis...
117w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted up a new Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 video today dubbed A Party of One with details below, as follows:
The team at Insomniac Games in North Carolina has been working hard to wrap up their first game, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
It's a terrific four-player co-op adventure, and we're really excited to have it in your hands next month. A frequent question we've been getting is "how is it when you play alone?"
While bringing co-op to Ratchet & Clank has been by far our number one request for the franchise, we know many of you love to sit down and play Ratchet & Clank and enjoy the fantastic worlds, inventive weapons and hilarious storylines on your own time.
I'm here today to talk a little bit more about the single-player experience. Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is built from the ground-up to be a co-op game, and many of the mechanics are very co-op based. So quickly realized we needed to give you a computer-controller partner to keep the gameplay balanced.
In that regard, if you play All 4 One alone as Ratchet, Qwark or Nefarious, you'll be teamed up with an AI bot playing as Clank. As you traverse the levels,...
