Fresh out of Sony’s E3 Press Conference, the second highlight during the event was Ghost of Tsushima. And by the looks of it, this is shaping up to be a real stunner! Check out the video below:

 

Here’s a brief description from the game’s website:

“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 game features all the makings of a hit, the video showcased what we can expect – a lot of stealth, sword fights, slo-mo slashes… And a lot of calculated moves! Pretty awesome if you ask me.

For some reason though it reminded me of two games from the PlayStation One’s heyday – Bushido Blade and Tenchu: Stealth Assassin’s (yeah, I’m that old) still, I’m excited for this!
