Ghost Of Tsushima Release Day Buying Guide: Price, Special Editions, And More

Ghost of Tsushima is out now--here's what you need to know if you haven't bought the PS4's latest exclusive yet.

14 Comments

Ghost of Tsushima, one of the last major PS4 exclusives, is finally out now. Developed by Infamous series studio Sucker Punch, Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world action stealth game set in feudal Japan. You play as one of the only samurai to survive the Mongol invasion of the island of Tsushima in 1274. Your job is to sneak around, fight enemies, and take the island back.

Ghost of Tsushima gameplay first debuted in an E3 2018 trailer, giving us our first glimpse at its stunning world. Reminiscent of traditional samurai films, we see the protagonist, Jin, in the Otsuna Grassland. He squares off with three Mongol invaders to meet up with his ally Masako. Not only is the open world absolutely breathtaking, but the battles are also beautifully choreographed to fit into the picturesque beauty of feudal Japan.

In GameSpot's Ghost of Tsushima review, senior editor Edmond Tran praised the game's gorgeous open world and stylish combat but felt the mission structure of loops were dull, giving it a positive 7/10. "The game hits a lot of fantastic cinematic highs, and those ultimately lift it above the trappings of its familiar open-world quest design and all the innate weaknesses that come with it--but those imperfections and dull edges are definitely still there," he wrote. "Ghost of Tsushima is at its best when you're riding your horse and taking in the beautiful world on your own terms, armed with a sword and a screenshot button, allowing the environmental cues and your own curiosity to guide you. It's not quite a Criterion classic, but a lot of the time it sure looks like one."

Unfortunately, it's too late to claim any of Ghost of Tsushima's pre-order bonuses, but if you still need to buy the game, you can check out its editions and what each one comes with below.
