Some gameplay elements in the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault have been revealed, including a new tower defence mechanic.

The new feature will see players building and defending a base against alien invasions using Ratchet & Clank arsenal, according to developer Insomniac.

Ratchet, Clank, and Captain Qwark will all be playable characters, pitted against an alien army across five levels set on three different planets.

The game will have split-screen and online co-op modes, and an as-yet unrevealed online mode.

“The game is returning to more core R&C gameplay,” said Insomniac.
