Billy Harper, Animation Director at Sucker Punch, tweeted a photo of a katana sticking out of a platform. The picture shows what appears to be the initial start to setting up the Ghost of Tsushima area at June's E3 event.
Oh nice! Only a little while longer until E3!
Hope they have Samurai Showdowns like the commenter on Twitter just posted, it would kind of be like RDR's but with swords.
You're telling me! It's my most anticipated game, along with Cyberpunk 2077. I really hope they show us a decent amount of the stealth gameplay and more of the world.
OH MY GOD ! I’m ready.
Awesome. I can't wait to see more this game. I think Sony have all the hype this year going into E3.
I agree, I find it funny how the media tries to make it seem like Spiderman, ghost of tsushima, death stranding and the last of us 2 aren't games to be really hyped for since Sony announced they we're going to take a deep dive into these 4 exclusives. Like I said on another thread, these 4 games will be just as big as god of war or any other huge game people are looking forward too and we all seen what god of war did sales wise and single handedly gave the ps pro a huge boost in sales. Look for more of that with just these 4 exclusives and Sony has marketing rights for red dead redemption 2. Bruh nothing is going to stop PS4.
Yeah these four are in a league of their own and while some may try to downplay them there's no denying the hype and excitement for the gameplay of these titles! Like you stated these four will be massive, massive system sellers! While there are quite a few titles I'm excited for and there may be a few surprises, nothing has me more excited than seeing gameplay of TLOU2, Ghosts of Tsushima and Death Stranding!
Hardiman I know what u mean bruh, the wait is killing me. Feels like we're waiting years even though it's a few weeks away lol.
"I find it funny how the media tries to make it seem like Spiderman, ghost of tsushima, death stranding and the last of us 2 aren't games to be really hyped for since Sony announced they we're going to take a deep dive into these 4 exclusives. " It's funny how PS fans keep acting like the media is trashing their poor games, despite the fact that this very same press is always scoring them 9 or 10 (and the odd score lower than that which is immediately pronounced as heresy) Who on earth is trying to make it seem like Death Stranding, Spider Man, TLOU 2 are not big ? Where is this press you speak of ? These are some of the most if not THE most hyped games ever, especially Death Stranding. Cyberpunk is probably the most hyped game overall, ofcourse
Lamboomington When gaming sites say aww Sony has already played their cards and announced their games they are going to talk the most about at e3 and say things like it's already a let down or giving it's competition a chance to win. To me that's telling me that these game sites are overlooking the 4 games Sony are taking a deep dive in. Doesn't that sound like they are brushing off Sony's 4 most highly anticipated games? For example if Microsoft had a new halo and gears and 2 new ip's we knew that we're coming and Microsoft said, we're going to take a deep dive into these 4 exclusives that would be huge for Xbox fans. Same for Nintendo if they had anew Zelda, Mario, Metroid prime and Pokemon game and said they were going to take a deep dive into these games Nintendo fans would be happy but the media would still try an downplay it like these games are just ordinary titles. That's all I'm saying. Anyone who denies any of these 4 exclusives Sony are showing at e3 are small fries just look at god of war reviews and sales and take that into consideration of how strong PS4 exclusives are selling this generation before brushing off Sony like they already played their cards.
I know it has given no hint of it whatsoever, but i feel like i'm going to be watching the new trailer and somewhere along the presentation the protagonist is going to use some super power out of nowhere and blow my f*&%ing mind! Wont be disappointed if this isn't the case, just feel like it's something that'll happen.
I think live gameplay
Super Powers will make this game into something other than what it has been portrayed to be so far. Very little is known but I am not getting that type of vibe from this.
I agree. I think the smoke effect was just a visualization of this fallen samurai turning into an assassin. More symbolic than a super power. I don’t mind believable “super powers” and ninja tricks (it’s sucker punch) but I’d rather it not be heavy on the supernatural. I’m getting the vibe of historic as well.
Yeah, it seems more like a realistic, dramatic epic story, about a fallen Samurai Warrior who becomes a Ninja or Ghost. The smoke literally looked like a Ninja explosive, used for deception as a strategy, I don't think this game will have Infamous style powers. I personally hope it's a logically thought out, realistic melee game, set in a vast open world, with a landscape that's alive and packed with depth that fits the era.
@isarai By judging by the the first GOT tralier it has a japanese traditional feel to it. I don't think this game will have an over the top super human powers or magics in the game.
I really hope you're wrong. I'm looking for feudal Japan. Nothing more. Less Dragon Ball Z, more open world Tenchu. But with great sword play, story and voice acting. In fact this would be the only game I would actually want to play with the Japanese voice acting if available.
They're exploring the Mongol invasion of Tsushima... Honestly Sucker Punch's pedigree is tight gameplay and fantastic sense of empowerment of it's players. The very end of the trailer showed the protagonist gain the powers of "Ghost" to overwhelm the Mongol army... I'm sure it will be historic , but I have a feeling this will be bend on the fantastical side
@Sevir: The trailer didn't show any powers, it had the Samurai transform into what looks like a Shinobi, the cloud of smoke was from a physical, period appropriate explosive. This seems grounded in realism, with a stylistic edge.
I really wanna see gameplay for this
My most hype game right now. I can’t wait to see it in action.
I agree. While I love The Last of Us and can't wait for Spider-man this is a brand new IP that looks very unique. Can't wait to see it at E3.
I already preordered Spider-Man. The transaction is done, I don’t need to see anymore lol. The last of us 2 could get me interested with gameplay but I doubt it. I wasn’t a fan of the first so I’m indifferent right now but that could change. I’m just a huge fan of feudal Japan, samurai, ninjas and the like. It’s a great game setting, nioh was my GOTY last year. A more historic and grounded open world game in this setting? My hype can only go down from here lol. I hope it doesn’t dissapoint. It’s sucker punch though, that’s the good news.
Choo ! Choo!
Been wanting an open world Feudal Japan game for so long. Really hope this delivers.
Since The Last Ninja.
You just traveled through time for that one
If you've never laced a chicken drumstick with opium to drug a big panther, you've never gamed.
Bring it on SP, can't wait to see this badboy in action.
Really hyped about this game. Not enough Japanese themed AAA games that get Western attention.
Great.. You got me fantasizing about a Gundam game with AAA treatment.
Don't tease... that's so mean.
I have so many good memories this gen from Sony and the PS4. From launch with KZ SF which was always one of my favorite series to the varied vast amount of great exclusives to this day. I mean its been amazing this gen in terms of the amount and quality in there games. Uncharted 4 and LL, Bloodborne, GOW, and even games like The Order 1886 and Driveclub, to me were unique different experiences but fun in the end. GT Sport and Ratchet and Clank and even Knack and Knack 2. Many more I didnt even mention but all in all just a great amount of games and so many different styles and genres. This E3 Sony has even more great games coming for us and the next few years til PS5 will continue the magic im sure.Days Gone and TLOU have me really excited and Spiderman looks insane. Like I said, this gen has been great for us PS4 gamers and it isnt stopping anytime soon. Thank you Sony for giving me so many great games and experiences and making me happy as I look forward to what comes next. As a gamer we want to be happy and excited for our games and Sony has kept me happy and intrigued with whats to come. Doesnt get any better than that and that is what keeps me as a gamer happy not worrying if my console will have anything new or will make something good finally. No letdowns, just great expriences and lots of fun.
I've been gaming since the mid 80's and agree with you 100% on this gen being a pleasant surprise! In particular when PlayStation is concerned because I've been having a blast and it looks like the PS4 still has many more amazing games that will blow our collective minds!
This is probably my most anticipated title alongside Death Stranding and FromSoft’s new title!
Sucker Punch is back!!!
With an attitude!
as painful as the wait is, its so awesome to have all these great titles to look forward to.
Ghost of HYPE!
I can't wait to see more of this game! I love the era and Sucker Punch are great devs that know good gameplay.
Really excited for this, I'm a suckered for games that use historical set pieces
I hope this is the samurai version of Red Dead Redemption.
Imagine if it ends up being a simulation similar to Westworld! That would be awesome.
This game is likely going to get overshadowed by TLoU2, Death Stranding, and Spider Man, but I still can’t wait to see it in action.
Dude, come on ! Sucker Punch is very talented and i’m sure they will surprise us.
I should’ve clarified my comment is strictly about viewership at Sony’s E3 show. I have no doubts that the game will be a critical hit and sell very well. I’ve never been dissapointed by Sucker Punch’s games, so I have the utmost confidence that this game will be fantastic.
I respectfully disagree, bud. The buzz that Sucker Punch’s game got from E3 last year was great. And, it’s been 4 years since the studio released Infamous: Second Son. Fans of Sucker Punch, and just gamers in general who (by some chance) weren’t interested in the Infamous series or never got to play at game from this amazingly talented studio, have been drawn in by Ghost of Tsushima. There will be plenty of space for this game to breath, along with Days Gone, Death Stranding, and The Last of Us Part 2 come next year.
Ghost wasn’t at E3, it was at PGW lol I’m aware it got a lot of buzz, but TLoU2’s trailer got far more at PGW, and now it’s up against the 3 most anticipated PS4 exclusives. I have no complaints or doubts about this game. Look at my reply to UCForce above.
My bad about where it was shown lol. I did read your reply to UCForce. TLoU2’s trailer got far more buzz because, well, it’s a Naughty Dog game. And it’s a sequel to TLoU (arguably the best game of all time) Unless it was like, a trailer for GTA6 shown at PGW, I don’t see anything other game trailer receiving as much buzz as TLoU2’s. It’s just, it’s TLoU lol. I believe Ghost of Tsushima will do just fine, regardless of those 3 games.
Same. I just think TLoU2, Spider Man, and Death Stranding are all 3 games that will likely shatter the internet since they’re being shown at the same time. I hope Ghost gets it’s fair share of attention, as Sucker Punch more than deserves it. It’s just an opinion it might get overshadowed.
I understand what your saying. I do believe Ghost will definitely get it’s fair share of attention. I trust Sony to do right by Sucker Punch.
I'm wayyy more interested in this than TLoU2 personally...
Yeah, but on the mass scale, I think TLoU 2 is the clear winner if we wanted to pick which one would sell a lot more.
I’ve got such a long list of games I want to play still. I seriously can’t believe the backlog this gen. This game is added to my list as well
I agree completely it's growing weekly. PS5 must have BC cause there are too many games I own on ps4
This better be good, their last game thou pretty wasn't all that.
I'm so looking forward to this game I hope its good and doesn't suck!
I can't wait!
Excellent I'm pretty excited to see what this game looks like, definitely my kinda era/theme.
This is one of my most anticipated games! I can't wait to take in the beautiful scenery and stealthy combat!
Ohhhhh I wanna see it D:
Considering how this game is linked to the Tenchu series, I really hope that Katana pic is a Tenchu 3 reference.
Man i cant wait. Sony owns
Another Sony megaton incoming!
