Ghost Of Tsushima Black-And-White Filter Pays Tribute To Classic Samurai Films
Channel your inner Akira Kurosawa with Ghost of Tsushima's new Samurai Cinema mode.
Sucker Punch Productions' PlayStation 4 exclusive, Ghost of Tsushima, is only two months away now. The studio recently showed off 20 minutes of gameplay that featured a bunch of enticing details, including an optional black-and-white overlay that transforms the game into a classic samurai film. Using the game's photo mode and video features, you can even become the director of your own film, complete with extreme closeup shots of samurais unsheathing their blades as they prepare to deliver a single killing blow.
During PlayStation's Ghost of Tsushima State of Play, Sucker Punch unveiled the Samurai Cinema overlay. The mode--which slathers the game in a windy, black-and-white, film grain texture--can be turned on at the very beginning of the game. It allows you to experience the open-world samurai action in a way that recalls the films of famed director Akira Kurosawa. You can then use the photo mode and frame shots to highlight your most impressive moments with the filter still active.
Also during the Ghost of Tsushima gameplay demonstration, Sucker Punch showed off a closer look at combat and stealth, customization, open-world exploration, and more. With two distinct combat styles, the game can be played either with direct melee combat or using stealth and deception. It also features cute animals like birds and foxes that will guide protagonist Jin Sakai to various in-game destinations--and yes, you can pet the foxes.
Ghost of Tsushima is scheduled to hit PlayStation 4 on July 17. You can check out our Ghost of Tsushima pre-order guide to learn more about the various editions available to purchase, the bonuses you get for buying early, and more.
