PlayStation Releases New Footage Of ‘Ghost Of Tsushima’



Ghost Of Tsushima

PlayStation dropped its latest State Of Play video last night (May 14) which was dedicated entirely to Sucker Punch Productions’ upcoming game Ghost Of Tsushima.

The action-adventure PlayStation exclusive game is set on Tsushima Island in 1270s Japan and follows Jin Sakai, the last surviving samurai who must defend himself and the island from invading Mongol forces.

With the game set to release in July, PlayStation dedicated its latest State Of Play video entirely to the game. The 18-minute video showed off new gameplay of exploration and combat with commentary from Sucker Punch Productions’ developers.

The video showed viewers how players can climb and move around Tsushima Island on foot and horseback. Players were shown how Jin can climb various structures and use winds and wildlife to guide them throughout the island to various locations and collectables, rather than using waypoints on the screen.

The State Of Play showcased some of Tsushima’s beautiful scenery including bamboo forests, shrines, mountains, fields of flowers, lakes, and settlements too. They eventually turned to one of the most eagerly awaited parts of the game; the combat.

In the video, players were shown two forms of combat; an honourable Samurai style which involves standoffs and attacking enemies head-on, and the dishonourable Ghost style which involves stealth and using various tricks and tactics to take on enemies. The combat will feature different stances Jin can swap between and will require players to parry enemies for big attacks.

Complete Customisation

Jin himself is also completely customisable as players can acquire different armour and collect flowers to dye armour and personalise their look. The video showed off the various clothing, hats, and masks Jin can wear in the game. Ghost Of Tsushima also includes Charms which allow players to increase various abilities and skills, selecting how to play.

The State Of Play video also offered an in-depth look into the game’s photo mode which allows the users to select various music tracks, change wind directions, apply filters, alter particle effects, and so much more.

Finally, the State Of Play revealed that the game will feature an option for a Japanese voice track with subtitles to provide players with a more authentic experience. In addition, the game comes with a Samurai Cinema mode inspired by classic Samurai movies.

Ghost Of Tsushima was announced back in October 2017 at Paris Games Week where a trailer for the game debuted. Gameplay was shown at E3 2018 and several other trailers, including a story trailer, was released between then and March 2020.

Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost Of Tsushima will drop on July 17th exclusively for the PlayStation 4. You can pre-order the game now.
