Ghost of Tsushima is coming to PS4 on 26th June! It is so exciting to finally be able to announce our release date, and even better that it’s just a few months away. We can’t wait to share the world we’ve created!
Today we revealed a brand-new trailer that showcases our hero, Jin Sakai. In the past, we’ve shown the world around Jin, but this time we wanted to give you a taste of the people he meets along his journey and the scale of the threat that forces him to transform into a new kind of warrior. While you’ll catch glimpses of several of Jin’s allies and enemies in today’s trailer, there are two we want to focus on in particular.
The first is Jin’s uncle, Shimura, the jito (lord) of Tsushima and a father figure to Jin. He’s trained Jin since childhood in the traditional ways of the samurai, and grows increasingly concerned by the tactics Jin starts to adopt as he abandons his teachings and becomes The Ghost. The second important character we’re highlighting today is Khotun Khan. The Khan is the leader of the invading Mongol army and a ruthless, cunning enemy who uses everything he knows about the samurai to try to destroy them. He’s a brutal, unrelenting adversary that Jin will quickly learn not to underestimate.
Beyond our new trailer, we also have multiple editions of Ghost of Tsushima to reveal today. A pre-order of any edition gets you some bonuses – a Jin avatar, a digital mini soundtrack featuring select songs from the game, and a Jin PS4 dynamic theme based on our box art.
If you want to go fully digital, you can now pre-order Ghost of Tsushima on PlayStation Store. You’ll also find our Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes a digital copy of the game along with the Hero of Tsushima skin set, which provides an additional in-game horse, saddle, mask, sword, and armor set for Jin*.
The Digital Deluxe also includes two in-game items: the Charm of Hachiman’s Favor and one technique point*, as well as a Samurai PS4 dynamic theme. There’s also a digital mini art book by Dark Horse, plus our Director’s Commentary, in which our creative team sits down with a renowned Japanese historian to look at the world of Ghost of Tsushima and how it compares to the real-life events that inspired it.
We also have four physical edition options. There is the Standard Edition, which includes the game on Blu-ray disc. Also available at select retailers* is the Standard Plus Edition, which includes Ghost of Tsushima on Blu-ray disc and artwork featuring a custom print finish.
Then there is our Special Edition, which includes a SteelBook case plus a voucher for an in-game Hero of Tsushima mask and sword skin**, Charm of Hachiman’s Favor, one technique point, the Director’s Commentary, and the digital mini art book.
But the set I am most excited to get my hands on is our Collector’s Edition, which has a replica mask. It’s a re-creation of one you’ll wear in the game, and it’s heavy (made from polyresin). It’s not meant to be worn, but it includes an individually-numbered display stand so you can keep it on a shelf to impress your friends or terrify your enemies.
On top of that, there’s also a sashimono (war banner) just like you’ll see in the game that’s nearly 4.5 feet long, and a traditional-style furoshiki (wrapping cloth). You’ll also get a copy of the game with a SteelBook case, a physical 48-page mini art book by Dark Horse, and an artistic rendition of our full world map printed on cloth. Also included is a voucher for all of the digital content from the Digital Deluxe Edition listed above.
We are so excited to be so close to launch and we have so much more to share soon! Keep track of everything by keeping an eye on Sucker Punch’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, as well as Ghost of Tsushima’s official site.
