Ghost of Tsushima, one of the last major PS4 exclusives we know about, is now less than two months away. Initially planned for June 26, PlayStation announced Ghost of Tsushima will now release July 17–just one month after Sony’s other major game for the year: The Last of Us Part 2, which hits June 19. PlayStation recently showed off around 18 minutes of new Ghost of Tsushima gameplay in its latest State of Play livestream on May 14, and we got an up-close look at the game’s open-world exploration, combat, stealth mechanics, character customization, and much more. It also has multiple pre-order bonuses and editions available to pre-order, including the Collector’s Edition that’s currently back in stock at Walmart and Best Buy.
Developed by Infamous series studio Sucker Punch, Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world action stealth game set in feudal Japan. You play as one of the only samurai to survive the Mongol invasion of the island of Tsushima in 1274. Your job is to sneak around, fight enemies, and take the island back.
Ghost of Tsushima gameplay first deputed in an E3 2018 trailer, giving us our first glimpse at its stunning world. Reminiscent of traditional samurai films, we see the protagonist, Jin, in the Otsuna Grassland. He squares off with three Mongol invaders to meet up with his ally Masako. Not only is the open world absolutely breathtaking, but the battles are also beautifully choreographed to fit into the picturesque beauty of feudal Japan.
In addition to the release date and story trailer, Sucker Punch released a slew of pre-order information for Ghost of Tsushima, including multiple special editions and pre-order bonuses. July 17 will be here before you know it, so read on for everything you need to know about pre-ordering Ghost of Tsushima.
