For those living under a rock, Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima is available now for PS4. Launching last Friday and topping UK sales charts for the week, it’s garnered quite the amount of critical praise. Check out the accolades trailer below which highlights some of the more noteworthy blurbs.
Ghost of Tsushima has been praised for its story-telling, visuals, combat and world design, among many other things. It’s set on the Island of Tsushima in 1274 during the first Mongol invasion. After the island’s samurai are soundly defeated, it’s up to the surviving Jin Sakai to take back his home, albeit with dishonorable methods like assassination and subterfuge.
Jin soon earns himself a reputation as the “Ghost”, striking fear into the hearts of his enemies. Along with the main quest of liberating the island, players can also partake in different Tales of Tsushima, interacting with different characters and earning different rewards.
