Today Sony Interactive Entertainment released a brand new trailer of the upcoming open-world historical game Ghost of Tsushima by Sucker Punch.
The trailer focuses on the transition of the protagonist from Samurai to Ghost, and on his role as a lethal warrior against the soldiers of the invading Mongol Empire.
I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that it’s absolutely spectacular. You’ll probably find that out for yourself below.
Ghost of Tsushima has recently been slightly rescheduled to release on July 17, 2020, exclusively for PS4. That being said, it has already gone gold, so there won’t be any more delays.
The game was originally announced in 2017 at Paris Games Week and if you want to see more, you can enjoy an extensive gameplay reveal, the previous trailer, another recent Japanese trailer, an earlier video, and beautiful concept art from yesterday.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read an official description below.
“In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan.
As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands as one of the last surviving members of his clan. He is resolved to do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima.”
