At the most recent State of Play which took place April 29, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was the star of the show, and social media just can’t get enough.

Sony’s digital showcase event treated viewers to a new gameplay trailer, as well as a 16-minute gameplay demo to whet our appetites.

James Stevenson, the community director at developer Insomniac Games said [via VGC]: “I’ve played through the game at home on my 77″ OLED. It’s the best-looking video game I’ve ever seen. The team has knocked this out of the park to create a PS5 showpiece.

Principal Designer Drew Murray also chimed in on his team’s work on the highly anticipated platform shooter.

This is the best-looking video game ever made. Period. It won’t be forever, of course, but on June 11, I 100% stand behind that statement,” said Murray.

And I say that having had literally no hand in making it, just observing with awe since I returned to Insomniac Games.

Benji-Sales, who is a video game analyst and industry insider, was in agreement with Drew Murray. 

I 100% believe you. Some of the gameplay for this genuinely has that “pre-rendered” quality look to it. Insomniac is a studio filled with wizards,” agreed Benji-Sales.

However, the praise didn’t stop there because Scott Lowe, formerly of Naughty Dog, Activision, The Verge, and IGN was also offering praise for the PS5 exclusive.

I don’t think I’ve seen a modern AAA game where gameplay so closely hits the same visual fidelity bar of cinematic’s,” tweeted Lowe.

If you can’t get enough of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart either, then you can appreciate the platformer in all its glory by watching the 16-minute demo below in stunning 4K.
