'Ghosts Of Tsushima' Definitely Still Coming To PS4, Sony Confirms
It's been a while since we've seen anything of Sony's PlayStation exclusive open world adventure Ghosts Of Tsushima. Well over a year in fact. The last time we got so much as a glimpse of the Sucker Punch-developed title was during a gameplay demo in June last year, during E3 2018.
Understandably then, fans have been a little confused as to what the current status of Ghosts Of Tsushima actually is. With the PlayStation 5 officially arriving in time for Christmas 2020, the PlayStation 4 has a little over a year of life left.
Considering the above, and given that Tsushima still doesn't have a release date, many speculated that Sony and Sucker Punch had quietly made the decision to nudge the game back a little and make it a PS5 launch title instead.
The good news is that Sony Interactive Entertainment President Jim Ryan confirmed yesterday that Ghosts of Tsushima remains one of "blockbuster experiences coming your way on PS4." It's still not entirely clear when exactly it'll be hitting PS4, but I'm assuming we can safely bet it'll be before the end of 2020 so as not to get in the way of the PS5.
With Death Stranding marching towards its November 8 release date and The Last Of Us Part 2 finally locking down a February 21 launch, it looks like Ghosts of Tsushima will have the honour of being the final PS4 exclusive. Let's just hope the console and its incredible run of single-player exclusives go out on a high.
Ghosts of Tsushima was first announced way back in October 2017, and sees players take on the role of a samurai warrior who sets out on a journey across Japan during the Mongol invasion of 1274.
Sucker Punch has promised the adventure draws on Japanese history to create "a gorgeous tale of revenge, empowerment, and hope." It certainly sounds and look gorgeous - we just have to hope the gameplay and world are up to scratch.
Ryan didn't just confirm that Ghosts of Tsushima is still targeting PS4, by the way. He also finally confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will officially be called the PlayStation 5, which admittedly isn't that shocking, but it's nice to know for sure after months of doubt.
He also confirmed that the PS5 is aiming for Q4 2020 release, and that the console's new controller will boast haptic feedback (replacing the traditional rumble) and adaptive triggers for the most immersive possible gameplay experiences.
