Ghost of Tsushima launches June 26, story trailer

Meet protagonist Jin Sakai and those he will encounter along his journey.

Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima will launch for PlayStation 4 on June 26, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Sucker Punch Productions announced.

The announcement comes alongside the release of a story trailer, as well as pre-order bonuses and three limited editions. Here are the details, via the PlayStation Blog:

New Trailer

The new trailer 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.
