Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault gets new trailer, details, also up for “Cross-Buy”

The latest Ratchet & Clank game, Full Frontal Assault, will be available for Sony’s Cross-Buy promotion, where you get the game for both Vita and Playstation 3 if you buy it for either one. In FFA’s case, it is a PSN download only, so this gets even easier.

We also get to know it will feature competitive modes in the vein of Up Your Arsenal and Deadlocked, which results in “intense, strategic and “Ratchet-y” experience that combines classic Ratchet & Clank mechanics with MOBA-style head-to-head action.”

Explaining the competitive modes, the Playstation Blog post details:

The Full Frontal Assault competitive mode will support 2-4 players and feature ranked and custom games. A match will consist of rounds that are divided into phases. First, there’s a Recon phase where you’ll capture nodes in the battlefield. Then, in the Squad phase, you’ll build your base defenses and minion squads. Finally, it’s time to get nasty. In the Assault phase you’ll annihilate your opponent by attacking their base. The game ends when one side has destroyed all the generators in the opponent’s base.

The game will be out in fall, celebrating the franchise’s 10th anniversary. Quench the new trailer below!

    as a MASSIVE ratchet fan, you have no idea how much this hurts me to say this, but MEH!
    i was worried the best franchise of all time would end on a crappy kids game!
    then was so relieved when this was announced.
    and now were back to square one.
    sigh.
    i was dreading finishing AICT the whole time i was playing it because of the rumors of R&C split up.
    than was so relieved to find out they were false!
    you know what?
    i wish they had!
    at least that way the franchise would of died with dignity instead of convulsing on the strip club floor in a puddle of the managers wifes pee, than crapping itself!
