Ghost of Tsushima is the upcoming open-world title by Sucker Punch, developers of Sly Cooper and Infamous. The game is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and will be releasing on July 17. It was supposed to be out earlier this year but suffered multiple delays as it was first impacted by a delay to The Last of Us 2, and was then hit by a delay due to the ongoing global pandemic.
In Ghost of Tsushima, we will be playing a Samurai who is trying to fight back against the Mongol invasion. The game centers around the exploration of the open world to progress the story and discover secrets. You can play with a Samurai style or a Ghost style. The Samurai is forthright and honorable, while the Ghost is a demon in the dark, using any methods they need to achieve victory.
One interesting mechanic in the game is that you can find flowers to create dyes, allowing you to change the color of your armor and clothes. We are unsure how deep the options go, but it’s certainly a fun way to personalize your game.
It also has options to play the entire game in black and white, or with a Japanese dialogue track and subtitles, paying homage to the classic samurai movies that inspired it. The above video runs through many of the game’s features and is a must-watch for anyone interested in the title.
We are very excited for Ghost of Tsushima, and you can expect comprehensive guide coverage of the game from the moment it releases.
