Ratchet and Clank, Insomniac’s pair of iconic PlayStation mascots, are coming to Dead Star on the PS4.
Unlocking the PlayStation-icons in Armature Studio’s MOBA/shooter hybrid is simple, but you have to act quick. Play Dead Star from now until May 2 to unlock Ratchet, and between May 6-9 to unlock Clank.
