Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world, action-adventure game, developed by Sucker Punch and produced by Sony, exclusively for the Playstation 4. The game is set to be released July 17, 2020.
Set on Tsushima Island, in the year 1274, at the time of the First Mongol Invasion of Japan. The Mongols, led by General Khotun Khan, have invaded Tsushima and slaughtered most of the samurai there with unconventional military tactics. Jin Sakai, a samurai and one of the few survivors of the initial attack, realizes that his knowledge of war is useless, and therefore must learn how to fight like a dishonorable Ghost to stop the Mongols before they reach the mainland of Japan.
Players can tackle most missions in one of two ways: as the honorable Samurai, Jin can challenge enemy leaders to duels, and use multiple forms of sword and bow combat to bring death to multiple enemies. As the dishonorable Ghost, Jin can make use of different items to distract enemies, quietly assassinate them, or even make lesser Mongols tremble in fear of his reputation.
Outside of combat, players can be guided by the wind to their objective, and by following NPCs and other creatures can find items and sidequests such as shrines or clothing dyes.
