New details about Ghost of Tsushima
Upcoming game makes its gameplay debut at E3 2018
Developers Sucker Punch and PlayStation have revealed new details about their upcoming title Ghost of Tsushima.
This will be an open-world samurai adventure set during the Mongol invasion of Japan in 1274. You play as Jin Sakai, a powerful samurai warrior whose adventure draws on Japanese history and the iconic traditions of samurai cinema.
In the E3 2018 trailer, Jin fights alongside another samurai - a deadly onna-bugeisha named Masako. They joined forces to save their homeland from the Mongol invaders, but Masako’s tragic personal history drives a wedge in her relationship with Jin. Masako and her story are one of many side characters and quests that will be available.
Jin’s outfit and how he chooses to fight are notable. He’s in a rain-drenched part of the world, so Jin has traded his traditional armor for a straw raincoat called a mino. And while he wields his katana with deadly skill, you can see he’s straying from his samurai ways to attack his enemies with the violent grace of a silent assassin.
Ghost of Tsushima is set to launch exclusively on PS4 sometime in the future.
