Infamous Developer Reveals Ghost of Tsushima for PS4

The Infamous developer tries out something new.

Today at its Paris Games Week presentation, Sony kicked off the proceedings with a look at the next game from Sucker Punch Productions. Instead of going back to the Infamous well the studio has been pulling from for some years now, it's trying something different.

Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world game in which you play a samurai in medieval Japan.

"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," says the game's synopsis on YouTube.

There's no word as to what type of game Ghost of Tsushima will be. More action, or perhaps some stealth action? Regardless, it looks amazing and Sucker Punch has proven it knows what it's doing. Ghost of Tsushima is coming to PlayStation 4 at an undisclosed date.
