Ghost of Tsushima is the upcoming popular and most awaited action RPG game from Sucker Punch Developments, first revealed as exclusive PS4 back in 2017 at the Paris Games Week press conference. Sucker Punch Production is officially ready to publish its much-awaited samurai tale, Ghost of Tsushima, nearly three years after its initial reveal.
Even though there is less than a month left before Ghost of Tsushima officially becomes available, its development team reveals more new information about various elements of the game.
Ghost of Tsushima Release Date
Sony Interactive Entertainment postponed Ghost of Tsushima ‘s release to July 17, 2020, in April 2020. Sucker Punch mentioned challenges as a result of the continuing coronavirus pandemic from its transitioning of required workspace.
The plot of Ghost of Tsushima
The story of Ghost of Tsushima circles around Jin, one of the few remaining samurais on Tsushima mainland, whose nation got run over by the Mongols’ army. The first invasion destroyed the island, quickly crushing the defensive samurai forces on the coast, and now challenges the Japanese nation.
Jin will march forward to protect his home country, even if it results in casting aside the privileged upbringing of samurai heritage. To destroy General Khotun Khan of the Mongol Empire and drive back his military forces, like Jin, players must master the art of the Ghost, a fighting style closely related to that of a ninja.
Ghost of Tsushima Gameplay
Ghost of Tsushima offers two distinct types of combat that Jin can inherit: Samurai – an accuracy-based parry and evades battle method – and Ghost, a stealth-based combat style that he must slowly master as the story unfolds.
The Tsushima Ghost also presents character customization for the game, and how specific armors influence your preferred style of play. In addition to armor, players can outfit Jin with Omamori Charms, which features various buffs that will give him an advantage in combat.
Tsushima ‘s Ghost also features a photo mode, with customizable options like color correction and field intensity. Players will also be able to manipulate global elements such as the direction of the wind, bright lights, and particle effects.
However, the game will not offer physical waypoints to direct players to designated destinations. Alternatively, it will use physical markers and leading wind mechanics to guide around the world.
Will Ghost of Tsushima Support Multiplayer?
Even though there is no concrete evidence from Sucker Punch, it would be reasonable to depict that Tsushima ‘s Ghost will be a single-player encounter. Concerning the game, neither Sucker Punch nor Sony Interactive Entertainment specified a multiplayer mode. Also, several other popular PS4 titles, such as God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, were single-player titles guided by the plots.
