Sucker Punch’s newest IP Ghost of Tsushima is set to have it’s full-length trailer revealed at the 2019 Game Awards.
Sony has officially confirmed that we’re getting a full-length Ghost of Tsushima trailer at The Game Awards on Thursday, December 12. Ghost of Tsushima is the latest game from Sony first-party studio Sucker Punch, since the studio’s last release inFamous Second Son, back in 2014.
Originally revealed at Paris Games Week 2017, the wait for Ghost of Tsushima has been a long one. So this is fantastic news considering that we haven’t really heard much about it since E3 2018. It seems Sucker Punch has had its head down, working on the game, while staying out of the spotlight.
What is the game’s plot?
Ghost of Tsushima’s story revolves around feudal Japan in the year 1274. At the time, samurais were fearsome defenders of the Japanese empire. Then, the Mongol Empire invaded the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, players must use unconventional tactics that go against samurai traditions. It’s critical to forge a new way of fighting – the way of the Ghost – for Japan’s freedom. However, while much remains to be revealed about Ghost of Tsushima. There is a fair bit of information already available for curious fans. The game will be a dramatic, samurai epic with some hyper realism flair. This is seen after an extended gameplay trailer gave a look at Ghost of Tsushima’s impressive visuals and methodical combat.
The game will be an open world but not a full-fledged RPG, instead following a more structured story. It’s also set to be a skill-based game but that doesn’t mean only hardcore players will be able to enjoy it. Ghost of Tsushima’s creative director explains that combat isn’t as challenging as Bloodborne’s. And that it’s instead “a game that’s meant for the mainstream gaming audience.” So, between its experienced development studio, beautiful visuals, and intriguing setting, Ghost of Tsushima is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated PlayStation-exclusive games on the horizon.
While the game never had a release date, Ghost of Tsushima had a delay internally and it probably won’t release until late 2020. So, it might end up being a PS5 launch title. Either way, we’ll have to wait for the full trailer set to be shown at The Game Awards on December 12 at 8:30 p.m. EST, to find out.
