Sucker Punch Productions and Sony have announced the release date for the upcoming PS4 exclusive action game Ghost of Tsushima. Jin Sakai must sacrifice everything to defeat the ruthless Mongol invaders and protect what’s left of his home and people. As he embarks on an epic adventure for the freedom of Tsushima, he is forced to set aside samurai traditions and become a new kind of warrior. His adventures will begin on June 26th, 2020.
The developers have also released the story trailer you can find above. Find out what set Jin Sakai on his path by checking it out!
The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan—until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting—the way of the Ghost—as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan
The developers have also made a special blog post on the PlayStation site to reveal the Special, Collector’s and Digital Deluxe editions of the game.
A pre-order of any edition (including the Launch Edition at select retailers) gets you some bonuses — a Jin avatar, a digital mini soundtrack featuring select songs from the game, and a Jin PS4 dynamic theme based on the box art.
Digital Deluxe Edition ($69.99) includes a digital copy of the game along with the Hero of Tsushima skin set, which provides an additional in-game horse, saddle, mask, sword, and armor set for Jin. The Digital Deluxe also includes two in-game items: the Charm of Hachiman’s Favor and one technique point, as well as a Samurai PS4 dynamic theme. There’s also a digital mini art book by Dark Horse plus the commentary.
Ghost of Tsushima physical Special Edition ($69.99) includes a SteelBook case plus a voucher for an in-game Hero of Tsushima mask and sword skin*, Charm of Hachiman’s Favor, one technique point, the Director’s Commentary, and the digital mini art book.
Physical Collector’s Edition ($169.99) includes a replica Sakai mask – a recreation of the one you’ll wear in-game. It is heavy and not meant to be worn, but it includes an individually-numbered display stand so you can keep it on a shelf to impress your friends or terrify your enemies.
On top of that, there’s also a sashimono (war banner) just like you’ll see in the game that’s nearly 4.5 feet long, and a traditional-style furoshiki (wrapping cloth). You’ll also get a copy of the game with a SteelBook case, a physical 48-page mini art book by Dark Horse, and an artistic rendition of our full world map printed on cloth. Also included is a voucher for all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition listed above.
