Insomniac Games have shared first details and screenshots on Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, its upcoming PlayStation Network title due later this fall.

After a four-player co-op off-shoot, Full Frontal Assault returns Ratchet to his classic camera, weapons, and third-person roots, and adds a tower defense element that will have players building and defending a base against invasions, bringing the game “a whole new level of strategy and decision-making,” according to Insomniac.

The enemy in Full Frontal Assault is new, and apparently has a “nasty surprise” planned for Captain Qwark, who speaking of which, is one of the game’s three playable characters next to Ratchet and Clank.

The game will feature five levels set across three different planets, and allow you and a friend to play together in both split-screen and online co-op play. An online mode set to be revealed at a later date will add replayability to the PlayStation Network title. Also still to be revealed are “loads of upgrades, extra character skins and unlockable content.”

    I love Ratchet and Clank but this sounds All4One’y which means Ratchet *or* Clank. I prefer the gameplay where Clank is on Ratchet’s back and stuff.

    Still gonna get it though. Need more Ratchet. <3

      I know right, I love the Ratchet and Clank series but I couldn’t stand All4one, it was just far too different than what I was used to. It didnt seem like Ratchet and Clank when I played it :(

      Hoping that in the future, the next Ratchet game will be a proper one!
      Though I’m still probably gonna get this anyway.

    After the disaster that was All-4-One, the world needs a new full-length R&C game. A tower-defense based short title with 5 levels doesn’t exactly turn me on…
    Come on, Insomniac. Don’t let us down…

      That’s the point. Its not a full length game. Its like Ratchet & Clank Quest For Booty. Its just a downloadable PSN only game. They probably have a full length Ratchet & Clank game for PS3 or maybe PS Vita in developement but just not ready to announce it.
