What is Ghost of Tsushima about?
Ghost of Tsushima is an open world action adventure set during the Mongol invasion of Tsushima Island. Taking place in 1274, the game tells the tale of Jin, a samurai who barely survives a battle with the Mongol Empire. In order to fight back, Jin adopts new strategies and develops new techniques to catch his enemies off-guard. He becomes known as the titular Ghost of Tsushima, striking fear into his foes from the shadows.

We've yet to see gameplay of this feature, but it's very likely that Ghost of Tsushima will have some sort of crafting system. We can easily imagine having to craft smoke bombs, arrows, and more during the adventure.

Yes. Sucker Punch has confirmed that Ghost of Tsushima will have a Japanese audio track for a more authentic experience.

We will update this guide if and when we learn more.
