We’ve been having a blast playing against you online in Ratchet & Clank: QForce the last few weeks, and we hope you’ve been enjoying the game as much as we’ve enjoyed making it and playing online ourselves.
We know many of you have been asking when the PS Vita version of the game will arrive. As you know, R&C QForce is a cross-buy enabled title, so your purchase of the PS3 game entitles you to download the PS Vita release at no additional cost upon its release.
Developer Tin Giant has been hard at work finishing the PS Vita version, which will be available soon in early 2013! If you bought the game digitally, you’ll be able to download the PS Vita version via your Download List on the XMB when it releases. For those purchasers of the retail disc, you’ll also be able to download the PS Vita version via the “Disc Benefits” option under Game on the XMB.
One thing every great multiplayer game has is regular new content and support. The team in North Carolina has been working hard and listening to your feedback the last few weeks. We have a new patch coming out this week that addresses many of your requests, and fixes some of the balance issues both online and in the campaign. In addition, we are adding two additional levels to the weapons in the game, so you’ll be able to further up(grade) your arsenal.
But that’s not all – in early January we’ll be bringing another patch to the game that will add a new multiplayer map. This patch will be free and will add the map for all users. This map is set in one of the most famous locations in the Ratchet & Clank universe: Metropolis. Check out a first sneak peek at the new map below.
For those of you who have already jumped into QForce, thanks for your support! And for those of you still waiting, check out the free trial on the PlayStation Store!
We have more skins and free maps to come in 2013 as well, so stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog for all the latest updates. If you have any questions, ask below and we’ll do our best to answer!
