Unfortunately for the tech community and gamers alike, Sony will not be revealing more details on its upcoming PlayStation 5 console during the event. We wouldn’t expect any new PS5 gameplay footage either. “And just to be clear — there won’t be any PS5 news or updates in this episode, just a big, beautiful look at Sucker Punch’s PS4 open-world epic,” added the blog.
Ghost of Tsushima: What you need to know
In case you weren’t already aware, Ghost of Tsushima is a Samurai action-adventure title that focuses on stealth elements too. Set in the 13th century, the game takes us to the Tsushima island, the final barrier standing between Japan and a massive Mongol invasion that has been conquering the east.
The open-world game gives players the freedom to tackle enemies and execute missions in various ways. You can either take the creative stealth approach or engage in one-on-one duels to the death. Interested buyers who pre-order the Ghost of Tsushima game also get a digital mini soundtrack, a Jin dynamic theme for PS4, and also a Jin avatar.
