We finally have the story trailer of the upcoming PS4 game Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch Studios. The release date of the game has been set to June 26. The action adventure game is set in Feudal Japan. The protagonist Jin Sakai will be battling the Mongol forces that are invading Japan in this game. The story trailer also have glimpses of the combat we will see in the game. The game will employ stealth techniques as well, more of which we will definitely see in a gameplay trailer.
The PlayStation blog explains the story elements in the following manner. “The first is Jin’s uncle, Shimura, the jito (lord) of Tsushima and a father figure to Jin. He’s trained Jin since childhood in the traditional ways of the samurai, and grows increasingly concerned by the tactics Jin starts to adopt as he abandons his teachings and becomes The Ghost. The second important character we’re highlighting today is Khotun Khan. The Khan is the leader of the invading Mongol army and a ruthless, cunning enemy who uses everything he knows about the samurai to try to destroy them. He’s a brutal, unrelenting adversary that Jin will quickly learn not to underestimate.”
