Sucker Punch just released a new trailer for it’s new upcoming IP Ghost Of Tsushima set to launch in 2020.
It’s officially official. One of the most anticipated games for the PS4, Sucker Punch’s open-world adventure game, Ghost of Tsushima, will be released in summer 2020. The developer announced it’s release during The Game Awards in Los Angeles on Dec. 12. This was the first real look at the PS4 exclusive since Sony released a short teaser during its State of Play earlier this week. According to the host Geoff Keighley, it was the longest trailer of the night. Check it out below:
The new trailer opens where the teaser did: a group of Mongol invaders drudging through a forest in the fall. A samurai in the distance, however, stands in their way. “The ghost,” a voiceover intones in another scene, showing the protagonist crawling through a battlefield. “Some say he died on the beach. Others say he is a storm made flesh. When the wind flashes their tents and boats, they know… he is coming.” We then see the samurai slashing through a camp, armed with a blade and a bow with flaming arrows. Cutting back to the scene in the forest, he decimates the warrior crew, sparing just one survivor. “Tell him I’m coming,” the samurai instructs before the Mongol scrambles away.
The trailer includes a blend of gameplay and cinematic footage. Beyond more of those stunning horseback rides, there’s a glimpse of some stealth gameplay and hints at what the narrative has in store. There’s also a gorgeous moonlit battle, along with other killer visuals, like a volley of flaming arrows.
What’s the game’s plot?
Sucker Punch, the studio behind the PlayStation-exclusive Infamous series, first gave us a good look at the game during E3 2018 which featured some gameplay and plot details. In Ghost of Tsushima, players will be able to explore an open-world island. It’s set during the 13th century around feudal Japan in the year 1274. The game is centered on a samurai named Jin Sakai as he’s learning the way of the Ghost to defend Tsushima Island and Japan from the Mongolian invasion. As one of the last surviving samurai, players must use unconventional tactics that go against samurai traditions.
With the PlayStation 5 set to arrive next holiday season, this is looks like it will be Sony’s last big first-party title for the PS4. And so far, we are so hyped for it!!!! More details about the game will emerge in the leadup to the game’s release.
