Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One is a one- to four-player cooperative, online/offline, drop-in/drop-out title, making it easy to get together with friends and family, get in a game and have fun in the Ratchet universe.

The return of the Ratchet & Clank series brings an all-new twist to action-adventure gaming while setting the stage for a new story, brought to life with vibrant cinematic visuals.

In a franchise first, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One introduces four player co-operative gameplay, allowing players to team up as Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Dr. Nefarious. Helping our heroes (and the Galaxy’s most notorious villain) take on their biggest challenge yet, players will be immersed on a mysterious world with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons at their disposal. Delivering an explosive adventure infused with the series’ signature humor and cinematic style, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One takes the franchise to a new level of accessible fun that can be shared with friends and family.

We find our heroes in the midst of a dilemma of intergalactic proportions when Dr. Nefarious’ latest evil plan goes awry leaving Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Nefarious himself caught in the snare of a powerful and mysterious machine. Begrudgingly, the Galaxy’s biggest do-gooders and its most sinister criminal must work together to discover a means of escape in this action-packed installment of the Ratchet & Clank series.

Composer Michael Bross will be responsible for crafting the soundtrack to Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One. Over four hours of original music will be featured in Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One, with Michael Bross bringing a fresh perspective to the series while respecting the direction the franchise has taken with past titles. He is currently also working on the soundtrack for Red 5 Studios' Firefall.

Regarding Michael Bross’s involvement with Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One’s soundtrack, Insomniac audio lead Jamie McMenamy notes, “The deeper we get into the development of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, the more evident it becomes that Michael was the perfect choice as the composer for our project. His music is epic and innovative, providing the cutting edge sound and cinematic quality we desired for the game. We are truly excited to have him on board.”
