Ghost of Tsushima - Launch Trailer | PS4.
Ghost of Tsushima is an action-adventure stealth game played from a third-person perspective. It features a large open world without any waypoints and can be explored without guidance. Players can quickly travel to different parts of the game's world by riding a horse. An item that acts as a grappling hook will be available to access areas that are difficult to reach. The game features side quests and non-playable characters to interact with.
Players can engage in direct confrontation with enemies using weapons such as a katana, which can also be used to chain up a series of fatal strikes after highlighting specific enemies. Alternatively, using stealth allows one to evade enemies and strike them silently with tools such as firecrackers to create distractions, smoke bombs to disorient alerted foes, and kunai for striking multiple enemies. One-versus-one dueling with non-playable characters is also optional.
The game is set on Tsushima Island in the late 13th century. It will feature a diverse assortment of regions and buildings, such as countrysides, fields, shrines, ancient forests, villages, farms, mountainscapes and various landmarks. Players will encounter numerous characters, friends, and unlikely allies while adventuring.
Game director Nate Fox said: "This is a game that is entirely grounded in reality. We're trying hard to transport people to 1274 Japan. We're inspired by history, but we're not building it back stone by stone. We're not trying to rebuild Tsushima island. Our protagonist is a work of fiction. We actually thought about using some historical figures, and we asked some people who are more culturally aware than us and they said that it would be insensitive, so we didn't do it.
The protagonist, Jin Sakai (Daisuke Tsuji), is a samurai warrior. His friend and companion Masako is a samurai woman. The main antagonist is the ruthless and cunning general Khotun Khan of the Mongol Empire (Patrick Gallagher). Other characters include Onibaba (Minae Noji), the High Priestess (Hira Ambrosino), and Ippei the Monk (Keisuke Hoashi).
In the year 1274, a Mongolian invasion fleet led by Khotun Khan lands the Japanese island of Tsushima. Jin joins with the rest of the island's local samurai, led by his uncle Lord Shimura, in an attempt to repel in the invasion. However, the battle ends in disaster, with the entire samurai army killed, Lord Shimura captured, and Jin grievously wounded and left for dead. Jin is found and nursed back to health by Yuna, a local thief, who informs him that most of Tsushima has already fallen to the Mongols. Jin then attempts to storm Khotun's stronghold at Castle Kaneda in an attempt to rescue Lord Shimura, but is unable to defeat Khotun in combat and is thrown from a bridge.
Ghost of Tsushima was scheduled to be released on July 17, 2020 (worldwide) by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
It is a single-player video game.
