If you’re a fan of Sucker Punch’s past titles then you’ll want to watch the PSX 2017 Ghost of Tsushima panel.

For even more on Ghost of Tsushima, check out the two different descriptions (one of which leaked this week) that Sony has posted on their official website describing the game:
Check out the full Ghost of Tsushima description below:
Steel and swordsmanship – you must master both to survive in this colossal quest across 1274 Japan, where the Mongol army has taken over Tsushima Island. Don your armour, sharpen your katana and strap on your longbow as you assume the role of Jin, a battered samurai who remains the island’s only hope against the ruthless Khan and his vicious empire.
Through swaying bamboo forests, ornate castles and luscious landscapes one brave soul must fight back against overwhelming odds. Can you build your legend as “the Ghost” in a bloody tale of betrayal and sacrifice, inspired by classic samurai stories?
It’s worth noting that the page is down, although a Google cache confirmed that the description is real. For comparison’s sake, here’s the current description on the US PlayStation website:
The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan–until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But, honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting–the way of the Ghost–as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.
Ghost of Tsushima is in development for PlayStation 4.
