Everything We Know About Ghost Of Tsushima


PlayStation 4 owners have been waiting anxiously for Sony to release the system’s next two big games. The first, The Last of Us Part II, is just a month away, hitting on June 19. Ghost of Tsushima follows less than a month later, hitting on July 17. Ghost may end up being the last big PlayStation 4 exclusive, as PlayStation 5 is still slated to arrive this holiday season.

Sony has only shown Ghost of Tsushima a few times, and many of its details have been shrouded in mystery, but a recently released 18-minute video (which you can view below) walked us through some of the setup and action. We still have plenty to learn about this exciting historical game, but here’s what we know so far:

Who is developing it?
Ghost of Tsushima is being made at Suck Punch Productions, a Sony first-party studio based in Bellevue, Washington. The studio’s previous work includes the Infamous series of games on PlayStation 3 and 4, as well as the Sly Cooper trilogy on PlayStation 2. Ghost of Tsushima was first shown in October 2017 at Paris Games Week.

What is the setting?
The year is 1274. The location is Tsushima Island, Japan. The Mongol Empire is invading and leaving behind a trail of dead, including the samurai that have protected this land.
