Since then, Sucker Punch has also released a story trailer in which the players get to know the main protagonist Jin Sakai.
The footage shows aspects of exploring Tsushima Island, where players can summon a ghost and travel freely around the world. A gameplay element allows players to summon a gust of wind to guide them towards their goal as an unobtrusive guide. Players can also be led by animals ̵
The trailer also better introduces players to Jin, the samurai hero they will be playing in Spirit of Tsushima. Combat is said to be inspired by samurai films, with one-on-one battles against other warriors that dissolve into quick single strikes and parades. Players can choose to play “honorable” as a samurai or use stealth and assassinations to play against the invading Mongols as the title spirit.
To improve the cinematic aspect of the game, players can play the entire game Spirit of Tsushima With a fully subtitled Japanese language track and an optional black and white film grain filter that feels more like a classic samurai film.
Spirit of Tsushima will be released for PlayStation 4 on July 17th.
