E3 2018: PS4 Exclusive Ghost of Tsushima Gets Gameplay Trailer

It looks beautiful. Not quite a hot take, but true regardless.

During today’s PlayStation conference, Sucker Punch debuted gameplay footage for their upcoming samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima, showcasing a good mix of beautiful graphics and blood curdling gore.

The full trailer shows the island of Tsushima, Japan under the midst of a siege by the Mongol Horde. As one of the last surviving samurai, it’s on you to drive back the invaders, largely through chopping people’s arms off and doing sick takedowns like you’re the feudal Japan version of Batman.

The video gives us a good indication of the gameplay we can expect from Ghost of Tsushima, with stylised swordplay and effective stealth mechanics leading the way. The lack of HUD also gives the game a beautiful cinematic aesthetic. It’s highly likely that this game could be one of PS4’s greatest hits.
