Yesterday, at the Paris Games Show, Sony showed the first trailer for the new game from Suckerpunch, Ghost of Tsushima. Suckerpunch are the studio that brought us the Infamous series. Personally, I am very excited for this as the original Infamous is one of my favorite titles. The trailer shows some rather fetching graphics and contains some wonderful atmosphere.
Our best guess at the moment is that this will be a third person action game, as that is the groove that Suckerpunch have been working for some time now. Little is known about the game just yet, but the official blurb from Sony is below.
The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan–until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But, honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting–the way of the Ghost–as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.
So what do you think dear reader? I for one find myself ridiculously excited. I love when my favorite studios come out with new IP and can’t help but get all misty eyed as I think of all the fun I have had with Suckerpunch titles to date.
We don’t even have a hint of a release date, not even a “Holiday Season 2018” to be seen. This could mean the game is so early in it’s development that they don’t want to even give a vague release date. Consider me on tender hooks for more news about this one. I’ll keep you all updated with anything I learn.
