‘Ghost Of Tsushima’ Will Be Released In July
‘Ghost of Tsushima’ is the latest highlight from developer Nate Fox and Studio Sucker Punch Productions, known for the Infamous series. Announced at Paris Games Week in 2017, a release was initially scheduled for June 26, 2020.
The new release date (July 17, 2020). This action-adventure game set in medieval Japan was announced on the official Playstation blog. The reason for this was the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
The first information about a new title of the studio was available in 2015, with the first gameplay demo at E3 2018 in Los Angeles. The focus is on the feudal Japan era. A samurai is the main character that has drawn many players to ‘Ghost of Tsushima.’ The name of the game suggests the location, the island of Tsushima between Japan and South Korea, and Jin Sakai, the protagonist.
Sucker Punch Productions with Sony Interactive Entertainment as the publisher had ‘Ghost of Tsushima’ in mind shortly after the development of Infamous: First Light. The concept was an open-world action-adventure with no waypoints or classic tools like the popular compass.
The title is based precisely on this mechanism. As Jin, you explore the island of Tsushima on foot during the occupation by the Mongolian armed forces and your trusty steed. The orientation takes place exclusively through striking points in the area, such as sights. A quick trip via Jin’s horse Nobu should be possible.
Jin Sakai, the ‘ghost,’ is one of the last samurai on Tsushima and can either honor opponents with honor or kill them in an Assassin’s Creed manner via an ambush. This dynamic is presented in the game because you can adapt your playing style to your preferences.
The arsenal alone is complete with katana, throwing stars, alchemy, and a grappling hook that is reminiscent of a mix of samurai and ninja. The player, therefore, has many opportunities to develop himself. Jin is supported by companions, whose disposition depends on the actions of the protagonist. If you make a decision that goes against the grain of a companion, you can lose it. Worse, he becomes your enemy.
