Ghost of Tsushima E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

I first heard about Ghost of Tsushima back in December of last year when a teaser trailer was released during Paris Games Week. If you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again, then just Click Here to check it out. Since then I have been super excited to see more of this game and Sony finally came through with an awesome 9 minute gameplay trailer at this year’s E3. Personally I have been waiting for a detailed, open world, Samurai game to come to either consoles or PC for a long time. Ghost of Tsushima looks absolutely beautiful and I think Sony and Sucker Punch (developer) have really figured out the keys to making a game like this great. I can’t wait to battle enemies armed with my katana and code of honor.

In 1274, the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the Japanese island of Tsushima and slaughters its legendary samurai defenders. Jin Sakai is one of the last survivors of a noble samurai clan. To combat his overwhelming foes, he must pioneer deadly new fighting techniques–the way of The Ghost–and wage an unconventional war for the people of Japan.

So the cool thing about this story is that it actually has some historical significance to it. The game is loosely based on the real invasion of Japan by the Mongols. With that being said I think we can look forward to a game that is a bit more grounded in reality when it comes to enemy types and environments. The actual footage that was shown at Sony’s E3 press conference really captured the look and feel of ancient Japan. To say that this game looks gorgeous is a bit of an understatement. You can really tell that the development team has spent a lot of time perfecting every little detail about this game, from the way the wind blows the leaves on the trees, to the way your samurai moves his sword during combat.

If you go back and look at the reveal trailer you can see that your samurai will have different armor so I am hoping for some decent weapon and armor customization in the game. Of course only time will tell but Ghost of Tsushima is definitely on my “must have” list. So check out the Ghost of Tsushima E3 2018 gameplay trailer and as always let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation.
