PlayStation E3 2018 Recap: Best of Sony at E3 2018

While the earlier demo seen during the conference was focused on welcoming Spider-Man's iconic villains into the fold, the gameplay demo gave a better impression of how the game will function moment to moment.

Ghost of Tsushima has been at the top of my list since it was announced in 2017.

What did you think about the new trailer? Our main character Jin went on something of a rescue mission, riding his horse across picturesque fields as the Mongols encroach on feudal Japan.

Unveiled last October at Paris Games Week, Ghost of Tsushima is a big project from Sucker Punch Games, the studio behind the Infamous and Sly Cooper franchises.


The combat was slow, deliberate and violent, with the katana scything through body parts left, right and centre. The trailer shows Spider-Man zipping around outside of the super prison before taking on several of its more high-profile inmates.

Stealth also seems to be a core component of the gameplay, which saw the player dropping down from above onto unsuspecting enemies.

It's been a little over half a year since Ghost of Tsushima was first revealed, and since then, we've seen very little of it.

The Sony conference at E3 was the first time any gameplay footage was revealed from the PS4 exclusive. Granted, since this is a sequel and if you're like me and still haven't gotten around to playing the first The Last Of Us, there will be some minor spoilers inherent in the gameplay, but nothing too insane.


Looking a bit like the premise behind Batman's breakout game, Arkham Asylum, the trailer begins with Electro breaking out all the prisoners from the supermax prison The Raft.

Ghost of Tsushima is launching exclusively for PS4, although we don't have a release date yet.

A full on release is to be confirmed by the studio, but it is safe to say that fans can not wait to get their hands on their shiny new katana in Ghosts of Tsushima.
