Session Name:

Shifts and Rifts: Dimensional Tech in 'Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart'


Load times have always been something to be worked around - elevator rides and long tunnels are common fixtures in modern titles designed to mask slow I/O. The dimensional transitions in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart are a departure from this mindset, where we exploit the PS5's hardware capabilities to create the seamless world-hopping sequences found in the game.nIn this session, we'll discuss the rendering and I/O technology that bring these transitions to life.
