PlayStation Reveals Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’s PC Specs, Unlike PS5 Version An SSD Is Not Required But Is Encouraged

With just a bit over a week until Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart makes releases on PC, in anticipation, PlayStation has officially revealed on the PlayStation Blog what spec requirements your PC will need to play the PS5-developed Ratchet & Clank title. No matter what setting players aim for; you’ll need a minimum of 75 GB of free storage space and the latest version of Windows 10 (64-bit).

The exciting tidbit we got out of the official blog post is that you don’t need an SSD to play the game at the minimum setting; you’ll be fine with an HDD, which, to be honest, is a little shocking with how much Sony went overboard on the “power of the SSD” during the game’s marketing in 2020. The minimum settings also require an average performance of 720p at 30 fps, very low graphic settings, a GPU that’s as low as an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 or AMD Radeon RX 460, a CPU that’s as low as an Intel Core i3-8100 or AMD Ryzen 3 3100, and 8 GB of RAM.

Even with all that said, Sony still encourages anyone looking to pick up Ratchet & Clank; Rift Apart on PC with an SDD so players can ” experience the game’s signature dimension-hopping gameplay as originally intended,” for those who want to get the most out of the game’s dimension-hopping in the recommended or above settings.

For those with a pretty powerful PC looking to get the most out of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart‘s PC port, well, your hardware is going to need to be able to play at 4K (60 fps), an NVIDIA Geforce RTX 4080 GPU, an Intel Core i7-12700K or an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X CPU, and 32 GB of RAM; if you got all that then you’re pretty much good. If you’re in the middle with your PC, check out all of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Part‘s specs requirements below, provided by PlayStation.


Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is currently available on PS5 and is set to launch on PC next Wednesday, July 26.
