OVERVIEW
Created and developed by Insomniac Games, Ratchet & Clank™: Going Commando is the
team’s second installment to their successful PlayStation®2 debut title, Ratchet & ClankÔ,
released last November exclusively for PlayStation 2. Since that time, the Insomniac team has
grown by more than 20 percent, bringing on board more talented designers, programmers, artists
and animators to create a deeper and more robust weapons-based, action-adventure game
featuring the return of the dynamic pairing of Ratchet and Clank.

In Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, the two unlikely pals team up again for an all-new, sci-fi
adventure combining action, exploration, adventure, puzzle-solving, strategy with role playing,
shooting and racing into one compelling experience. The result is plenty of explosions and
devastation. Featuring brand-new, experienced-based character growth and weapons upgrade
systems, maxi-games, beautiful diverse environments, all-new character designs, magnificent
graphics, a compelling storyline and a unique arsenal of more of the coolest weapons and hi-tech
gadgets ever imagined, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando will leave gamers hanging onto the
edge of their seats.

STORYLINE
Having defeated Chairman Drek in their last intergalactic adventure, Ratchet and Clank find
themselves returning to a less adventurous lifestyle - until they are kidnapped and taken far
away to the Bogon Galaxy. Upon their arrival, they are propositioned by Abercrombie
Fizzwidget, the quirky CEO of the largest (and only) corporation in the Bogon Galaxy, to
investigate the whereabouts of one of Megacorp’s most promising experimental products, which
has been stolen by a mysterious masked figure. Mr. Fizzwidget extends an offer Ratchet cannot
refuse- the promise of an adventure that he has been longing for, a fully-paid health plan, access
to new weapon technology, a penthouse suite in Megapolis, and the chance to receive training to
become a certified commando. Meanwhile, since Clank is hesitant to reunite with Ratchet on
another set of adventures, Mr. Fizzwidget lures Clank to stay by offering him a cushy accounting
job at Megacorp.

It’s not before long that Ratchet and Clank find themselves entangled in action and mayhem.
Follow Ratchet and Clank as they discover the answers to, “Who is the mysterious masked
figure? What is the importance of the stolen experiment? Are things really as they seem? ”
Along the way, the duo encounters many dangerous foes, but with a plethora of the coolest and
most inventive weapons and gadgets ever, Ratchet and Clank are set to destroy anything and
anyone who stand in their way of discovering the secrets that lie behind “The Experiment.”

KEY FEATURES

· Ratchet and Clank return to explore 20 inventive planets filled with chaotic action in a
whole new galaxy.

· Moving even deeper into RPG territory, the new character growth system allows players
to earn more nanotech (hit points) by defeating enemies. By gaining experience, Ratchet
can increase his nanotech units from four to 80 by the end of the game.

· Enemies grow in strength (like Ratchet) and by the end of the game, can take up to 120
hit points of damage, forcing players to strategically manage their powerful artillery.

· Weapons, weapons and even more weapons! Offering 20 brand-new weapons with
unique unlockable upgrades as gamers gain skill and experience, more than 40 weapons
and gadgets are available by the end of Ratchet and Clank’s journey.

· A variety of “maxi-games” can be played over and over with different challenges and
goals each time. Fun, addictive and challenging gameplay offer players the chance to
earn extra money and prizes.

· Engage in action-packed space combat throughout the game. Upgrade Ratchet’s ship with
new weapons, armor and special items.

· Race against the galaxy’s best in exciting, high-speed hoverbike races. Players can even
customize their hoverbikes for more diversity when ripping up the tracks.

· Explore the unique “spherical worlds” which create a never-before seen perspective in
character action games.

· Fight in multi-tiered gladiatorial arena challenges for money and special rewards.

· Ratchet begins the game in a new commando suit and throughout the adventure has the
ability to accumulate up to five levels of armor.

· New economics: the amount of bolts Ratchet can earn in each world grows exponentially,
enhancing the sense of character progression as Ratchet gets richer. Of course, the prices
rise too…

· More sophisticated AI means enemies behave more intelligently, giving players more of
a challenge.

· Clank returns as a playable character with brand-new abilities.
