Sucker Punch has been pretty silent on what they’ve been doing since releasing inFamous: Second Son and its follow-up downloadable content, inFamous: First Light. The Washington-based team took to Paris Games Week to announce what they’ve been cooking up and it’s something a little different than what most would have expected. Ghost of Tsushima looks beautiful and violent, as you can see in the trailer below.
This was the first big announcement of the Media Showcase and boy was it a great start to the showing. The trailer above showcases what is presumably the main setting of the game: Tsushima, Japan. You play as a samurai warrior in the year 1274 after the Mongol Empire has invaded Tsushima. The story will take players on a quest for vengeance as you try to save your homeland by learning the ways of the Ghost and wage war in order to save Japan from the Mongol Empire.
First impressions are a big deal and I think Sucker Punch showed with inFamous: Second Son that they are definitely ready to go down a much more mature-focused route. Ghost of Tsushima looks like the natural progression of that, and I’m curious how heavily narrative-focused this will be in comparison to their previous games. We didn’t get a look at gameplay, but its clear that it will be fairly brutal.
Are you excited for the next game from Sucker Punch? Let us know in the comments below!
