Free update now available on PlayStation 3.

The long-awaited PS Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will launch on the PlayStation Store next Tuesday, May 21 in North America, and Wednesday, May 22 in Europe, Sony and Insomniac Games have announced.

Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked HD, which will be included as a “bonus thank you” for the long-delayed PS Vita release, is currently being wrapped up and will be available “soon.” For PlayStation 3 owners with a retail copy of Full Frontal Assault, you’ll be able to download Deadlocked HD, as well as the PS Vita version of Full Frontal Assault, by accessing the “Disc Benefits” option in the game menu. If you have a download copy, the PS Vita version and Deadlocked HD will appear as free downloads on your PlayStation Store.

Finally, a software update for the PlayStation 3 version of Full Frontal Assault is now available. It adds a new competitive map for the game’s multiplayer mode set in Molonoth Fields from Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time, and a PS3-exclusive two-versus-two mode. Watch a trailer for the new map below.

    Yay. Even though I’ll probably only check it out to see how the port turned out, since I already got the platinum and have little desire to play it more.

    More looking forward to Deadlocked HD for free.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Deadlocked HD. I’ve been waiting on that since it popped at the end of the Japanese reveal trailer for the HD collection. Looks like it’s time to pick up FFA.

    When will they go back to making good Ratchet games?

    • Elvick

      Hopefully on PS4.

      That said, I think A4O was still good. FFA is good too, it’s just pretty dull IMO. Too much back and forth to the base when all you want to do is shoot stuff and explore (which is uber limited in that game)

      Never :(

    Finally, Deadlocked HD

  • OverlordZetta

    Digital only or what?

    • Elvick

      Digital only for Vita. The PS3 version is on bluray (and digital), which entitles you to the digital Vita version. And a free version of Deadlocked HD for the delay on the Vita version.

      I think Europe gets Motorstorm RC as well as Deadlocked HD. Now that I think about it, Deadlocked might have another name there, like FFA does (Q-Force).

      • OverlordZetta

        Ouch. My memory card is way too full for this. Do we know how big it is?

        • Elvick

          I haven’t seen anything on size. ):

  • PrinceHeir

    great!

    So I’m a bit uncertain here, does Deadlocked HD work on Vita or is that for PS3 only?

    Hopefully Deadlocked HD isn’t a complete train wreck like the HD Collection was.
