Ghost of Tsushima Release Date, Plot, & More Detailed by Official PlayStation Magazine UK (Spoilers)

Ghost of Tsushima

For the second time the release date of The Last of Us Part 2 was delayed, and this time directly to an unspecified period to be allocated. After this bad news, many gamers were worried about what will happen to the other video games coming soon, one of these is the other exclusive PlayStation 4 title of Ghost of Tsushima. Today, however, according to the official PlayStation Magazine UK, it was confirmed that the title is still slated to release on June 26, 2020.

That’s right, “You can take on Khaaaaaaan and his Mongol Horde from 26 June” the magazine mentions. “We now know Ghost Of Tsushima will be following Nioh 2 and Sekiro onto PS4 as soon as 26 June. Developed by Sucker Punch, already known for the slick-to-navigate open worlds it created for the Sly Raccoon and InFamous series, Ghost gives you the whole island of Tsushima to explore while you attempt to repel a brutal Mongol invasion, based on real-life events.” This is good news for fans as the game will not be postponed after the sad delay of The Last of Us: Part II.

Ghost of Tsushima Setting:

The game is set during the 12th century Kamakura period in the virtual world of Tsushima Island in Japan that was invaded by Mongols, which is a military-led by Khotun Khan to overcome and take control of Japan in 1274 and 1281.

The plot of the Game (Spoilers):

According to the magazine “You play as Jin Sakai, trained in the way of the samurai and taught to fight with honor by his uncle Shimura, Lord of Tsushima. Jin’s beliefs are sorely tested when he fights on the island’s beaches, trying to repel the invading Mongol Empire fleet. After the initial attack, Tsushima’s forces are devastated, making him one of the last remaining samurai on the island (we know Shimura, at least, lives beyond the initial invasion). Narrowly escaping death, he realizes that to fight back against overwhelming odds might require him to use more than his samurai’s honorable skills. He must master the Way Of The Ghost, ninja-like skills that will enable him to take on a skilled enemy that heavily outnumbers him. The mantle of The Ghost turns you into a vigilante-type figure, battling for the oppressed people of occupied Tsushima. Which, of course, puts you right at the top of the Mongols’ most-wanted list. Their forces are led by Khotun Khan, a fictional analog of Kublai Khan (who led the Mongols at the time of the real invasion and went on to become the first Yuan emperor of China). As Jin carries Tsushima’s last shred of hope, if the Khan and his forces can snuff him out, Tsushima will fully fall to despair.”

Remember that Ghost of Tsushima will release on PS4 on 26 June 2020.
