Technical enthusiasts from Digital Foundry turned their attention to the Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart PC version and compared with the console. Unfortunately, this is a cursory look, since – in the future a more detailed analysis will be released. According to the team, once again the PC Port was released not completely polished. Be it Ratchet and Clank, Sackboy: A Big Adventure or The Last of Us Part 1, Sony continues to supply games with obvious problems when starting.
A comparison published by Digital Foundry is accompanied by a text analysis that list the best characteristics of the port, such as good scalability that allows players with appropriate equipment to enjoy much better graphics than on PlayStation 5, and players with low -power computers are quite decent, with the exception of some laying and problems, such as the absence of transparency effects at maximum settings, problems with texture loading, problems with shadows when the ray trace is included, stability problems and others. Additional disconnecting of rays tracing on the AMD graphic processors due to stability problems creates that this is another port that has been released in an unfinished form and will require many corrections to become a truly acceptable.
Three members of the Digital Foundry team tested the game on three completely different hardware. Alex played on a PC with maximum characteristics equipped with Core i9 12900K in pairs with RTX 4090 and 32 GB of fast DDR5, and Rich Lidbetter was enjoyed by a PC with minimal characteristics: Ryzen 3 3100 works pair with 8 GB DDR4, and RX 570 4GB – This is, in fact, RX 470 4GB with an acceleration of about 100 MHz. Meanwhile, John Lynneman was sitting for PlayStation 5 in performance mode.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart – far from the first port from the PlayStation on a PC released in an unfinished form. Back in March, Sony and Naughty Dog released The Last of US Part I in a very deplorable state, with many different problems, to eliminate which required many corrections. At the beginning of this year, the Returnal game also entered the PC in a slightly unsatisfactory condition, although not to the extent of the Last of Us Part I. So, it seems that Sony and studios involved in playing games for PlayStation should be more carefully approached by the release of worthy ports for PC.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is already available on PC and PlayStation 5 around the world
