Watch the first gameplay trailer for PS4 exclusive Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima is an upcoming title set in feudal Japan from the makers of the Infamous series of superhero games, and they just showed off the first gameplay trailer for the PlayStation 4 exclusive.

In the trailer, which is set during a Mongol invasion, your character mounts his horse and charges down a beautifully animated hillside into a forest. Once there, he encounters a variety of sword-wielding enemies. The gameplay appears to focus on well-timed counters and vicious sword attacks, and the trailer was among the goriest of E3 so far.

The trailer also shows your fighter and a companion sneaking into a temple and using stealth to get the drop on his enemies. In one memorable moment, he stabs through a screen to kill one enemy as he attempts to call for reinforcements.

Announced last October, Ghost of Tsushima is a new open-world game from Sucker Punch that combines action and stealth inside a beautifully atmospheric version of Japan.

Damn, that looks good, too bad it’s an exclusive.

Red Dead 2 on PC?

Lol that’s exactly what you’re implying.

Get your childish fanboying and warring out of here, the adults have the stage.

The kind of game I didn’t know I wanted, though I’ll primarily buy this because it’s Sucker Punch.

I feel kinda bad for Sucker Punch. They try to show off their game at an event where Nioh 2 and a similar game with a Souls bent are announced. Nioh 2 didn’t really show off gameplay, but Sekiro looked hot like lava, and it really stole this demo’s thunder.

I disagree, this is way more exciting to me than the other two. I much prefer more realistic games though, and this seams more grounded, maybe even historical.

I say this as a hardcore Souls/Borne fan: This is purely anecdotal, but I haven’t heard/read much of anyone talking about Sekiro since Tsushima was shown.

Tsushima seemed to present a more grounded, authentic (for lack of a better word) feel, while Sekiro was steeped with more hyper-realistic animations and gaudier aesthetics, with supernatural elements. Both look to be solid games though, and I can see them carving their own separate audiences, with neither really stealing the other’s thunder.
