Ghost Of Tsushima Confirmed For The Game Awards 2019

Sucker Punch Productions will debut a new trailer for Ghost of Tsushima during The Game Awards 2019, the company confirmed during Sony’s latest State of Play broadcast earlier this afternoon.

It’s been a long old wait for any new Ghost of Tsushima news/footage, but at least we’ll be getting a proper look at the game soon.

Ghost of Tsushima was announced during Sony’s presentation at Paris Games Week in 2017, with a gameplay demo later showing up during the format holder’s E3 2018 showcase.

The game takes place on Tsushima Island in the year 1274 during the first Mongol invasion of Japan, and follows Jin Sakai, the last samurai, who attempts to fight for the freedom of his country by mastering a deadly fighting style known as the way of the Ghost — hence the game’s title.

Ghost of Tsushima features an open-world to explore without any waypoints, with travel on horseback available to help you navigate your surroundings. While direct combat is a valid option when faced with enemies, stealth is also heavily encouraged in the game, allowing you to strike silently and unseen.

While the game is in production for the PlayStation 4, it has been reported that Sony will also bring the game to PS5. In fact, we’re apparently going to hear news of this during a dedicated event in New York City next February.

Sucker Punch was snapped up by Sony back in 2011, and made a name for itself during the PS3-era for its work on the inFAMOUS franchise. Its most recent project was the PS4 title inFAMOUS: Second Son, which came out back in 2014.
