Ghost of Tsushima may not have an official release date, but we now know when to expect Sucker Punch’s next effort. The game — which is set during the first Mongol invasion of Japan, and uses a samurai as its main character — will apparently launch during the summer 2020 window.
Along with this news, Sucker Punch shared a beautiful new trailer, and a bit of information about the main character’s skill set.
Andrew Goldfarb – Communications Manager at Sucker Punch said:
Today, we debuted a brand-new trailer that delves deeper into the identity our hero is forced to adopt in order to save his home: The Ghost. While Jin starts our game as a samurai, he’ll learn skills and adopt tactics that are decidedly not samurai-like, and you can get a small taste in the footage we revealed today. In the months ahead, we’ll share more about Jin, the threats he faces, the allies that help him along his journey, and what he’ll have to give up to become this new kind of warrior.
As I mentioned, Ghost of Tsushima is huge – the biggest game Sucker Punch has ever made by a wide margin. Our trailer includes some quick glimpses of the vibrant, diverse open world you’ll get to explore, but we’ve barely scratched the surface.
