Ghost of Tsushima Trailer Shows Off Some Beautiful Art Direction

Sucker Punch's next title shows a bit more shine.

Today at the PlayStation press event, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Sucker Punch showed off Ghost of Tsushima. While last year's trailer was all cinematic, this version of the trailer included actual gameplay for the first time.

The trailer begins on day 9 of the Mongol invasion of Tsushima and is largely about showing off the visual magic of Sucker Punch. Our hero riding across golden fields of grain, a fight in a forest with rippling water, and a swordfight at sunset as as the world burns around you.

The trailer also hinted at some gameplay mechanics. The swordfighting system looks to have timed-based parries of some sort. There was also stealth mechanics, with a chain assassination allowing our protagonist to kill three enemies in quick succession. There's also something that looked like the grappling hook from Uncharted 4.

No further release date for Ghost of Tsushima was given.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
