Combat will work like any samurai movie you have seen with standoffs, as you wait for you opponent to make the first move. Jin also has a bow to fight with as well as his sword. If you parry an enemy at the last possible moment before an attack, you will be to open them up for an attack.
Ghost of Tsushima has different combat stances, which will do the most damage against different types of enemies.
If you choose to act as a Ghost and go in stealthily, you can use distractions to lure enemies away from each other. Firecrackers can be used to stun enemies and performing jumping attacks will allow you to chain kills. Throwing knives can also be used to kill enemies from afar.
Jin’s grappling hook can be used to swing to new areas and help him traverse, alongside his ability to climb structures.
The gameplay seems to be a mix of Dishonored’s stealth action and Sekiro’s engaging combat.
