Sony aired a new State of Play presentation today, May 14, and it focused entirely on one of PS4's biggest upcoming exclusives: Ghost of Tsushima. Watch the stream below so you can learn more about Sucker Punch's impressive samurai game.

The stream focused on several different elements of Ghost of Tsushima, including the open-world exploration system. It makes use of a special guiding wind that can keep protagonist Jin on track toward his next objective. This can be a story-centric target or something else selected in the map.

Combat was also featured in two different styles: Samurai and Ghost. The honorable Samurai style makes use of direct combat with swords, deflecting arrows and parrying enemies before delivering killing blows. The Ghost style, meanwhile, relies on stealth and deception, as well as special gadgets and long-range weapons. Both styles can be enhanced by equipping specific gear. Your abilities can be enhanced by pairing the right gear with your style.

In a nice surprise, a beefy photo mode is also included that allows allows you to make your own videos. It includes a black-and-white filter complete with film grain to make the game looks like a classic Kurosawa movie, and you can also have this filter running while you're playing the game live.

Ghost of Tsushima was originally slated to launch in June, but its new release date is July 17. The Last of Us Part II, Sony's other big PS4 exclusive this year, will now launch on June 19 after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, while Iron Man VR is coming on July 3.
