A Storm Is Coming in the New Ghost of Tsushima Trailer

-

Sony has brought online a new Ghost of Tsushima trailer, which previews the anticipated game coming to the PlayStation 4 on July 17 (check price at Amazon). Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, Ghost of Tsushima is set in the year 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan – until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population.

As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting — the way of the Ghost — as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.

With Tsushima on the brink of destruction, Jin Sakai must sacrifice everything to defeat the ruthless Mongol invaders and protect what’s left of his home and people. As he embarks on an epic adventure for the freedom of Tsushima, he is forced to set aside samurai traditions and become a new kind of warrior.

The PlayStation 4 game was recently delayed from June 26 to July 17, 2020. Sucker Punch said: “There have certainly been challenges in adapting to game development in a Work From Home environment, but thanks to an incredible effort by our worldwide team, Ghost is nearly ready for release…

“There are a few finishing touches to apply and bugs to squash – so we’ll put these extra couple weeks to good use. We hope you all are staying safe. We can’t wait for you to play, and we’ll have many more details on gameplay to share very soon!”

Sucker Punch also previously revealed the different editions you can pre-order. A pre-order of any edition (including the Launch Edition at select retailers) gets you some bonuses — a Jin avatar, a digital mini soundtrack featuring select songs from the game, and a Jin PS4 dynamic theme based on our box art.

If you want to go fully digital, you can now pre-order Ghost of Tsushima at PlayStation Store. You’ll also find the Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes a digital copy of the game along with the Hero of Tsushima skin set, which provides an additional in-game horse, saddle, mask, sword, and armor set for Jin. The Digital Deluxe also includes two in-game items: the Charm of Hachiman’s Favor and one technique point, as well as a Samurai PS4 dynamic theme. There’s also a digital mini art book by Dark Horse, plus the Director’s Commentary, in which the creative team sits down with a renowned Japanese historian to look at the world of Ghost of Tsushima and how it compares to the real-life events that inspired it.

There’s also two physical edition options. The first is the Special Edition, which includes a SteelBook case plus a voucher for an in-game Hero of Tsushima mask and sword skin, Charm of Hachiman’s Favor, one technique point, the Director’s Commentary, and the digital mini art book.

And finally is the Collector’s Edition, which has a replica mask. It’s a re-creation of one you’ll wear in the game, and it’s heavy (made from polyresin). It’s not meant to be worn, but it includes an individually-numbered display stand so you can keep it on a shelf to impress your friends or terrify your enemies.

The Collector’s Edition also has a sashimono (war banner) just like you’ll see in the game that’s nearly 4.5 feet long, and a traditional-style furoshiki (wrapping cloth). You’ll also get a copy of the game with a SteelBook case, a physical 48-page mini art book by Dark Horse, and an artistic rendition of our full world map printed on cloth. Also included is a voucher for all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition listed above.
