Ghost of Tsushima was released on July 17, 2020 by Sony Interactive. The game was developed by Sucker Punch Productions. Ghost of Tsushima is an action adventure game.
Ghost of Tsushima is an action-adventure stealth game played from a third-person perspective. The game features a large open world, without visible waypoints on the HUD, which can be explored with or without guidance by wind direction.
Players can travel to different parts of the island on horseback. An item that acts as a grappling hook is available to access difficult to reach areas. The game features side quests and non-playable characters with which the player can interact.
The grappling action in game seems to have started with Tomb Raider and some games subsequent gave adopted variations to provide some new ideas in gameplay. The physics with Ghost of Tsushima makes this work well.
Players can engage in a direct confrontation with enemies, called a stand off, using their tachi (called katana in game), which can chain up a series of fatal strikes against a set number of enemies.
Ghost of Tsushima also earned several award nominations and wins and sold 6.5 million copies as of March 2021.
