The PlayStation is synonymous with distinct, exclusive titles. Time and time again, the platform gets games that continue to drive the PS4’s sales even to this day. From God of War 4 to Spider-Man, there is always something to add to the collection.

Another game coming down the pipe that’s exclusive to the PS4 is Ghost of Tsushima, an action-adventure game created by Sucker Punch Productions. Not much has been known about this game up until recently, when a teaser was shown at The Game Awards. That was roughly a couple of weeks ago, and even still, people are buzzing about the stellar graphics, emotionally-gripping story, and open-world environments.

Although we don’t have an official release date, we do know Ghost of Tsushima is coming out summer of 2020. So from May to July, PS4 users could be getting their hands on this incredibly unique and memorable action.

The story — from what we know and judging the cinematic trailer that was released — seems very compelling. You get to be the last samurai on Tsushima island. The Mongols have invaded these sacred lands and it will be up to you to keep freedom alive in Japan.

If the plot doesn’t draw you in, maybe the gameplay will. Shot from a third-person perspective, Ghost of Tsushima features a mix of action combat and stealth. You’ll need to find the right balance based on the situations at hand. For example, for enemies that are separated and backs turned, stealth will ultimately be your clearest path to victory.

Even better, the settings in this game have absolutely no waypoints. Instead, you’ll have the pleasure of navigating the beautiful, cultured settings at a pace you’re most comfortable with. Thus, there is plenty of mystery as you approach various locations and interact with the NPCs — friend and foe.

The developers clearly don’t want to hold your hand, which should make for a more immersive and fun experience. The challenges you face and the quests you complete will be ultimately depend on your actions. Given that the environments are open and large in scale, you’ll get to ride a horse.

As far as the weapons, we know there will be swords and other melee items — but there also is a grappling hook that can be used to reach higher vantage points.

Summer 2020 may seem like a long time from now, but based on the trailer and known details at this time, the wait will be worth it for PS4 users.
