It shows Jin, the game’s central character progressing from a young samurai in training to a world-weary, battle-hardened expert killer. It looks amazing too, mixing in-game footage and cutscenes to make Ghost of Tsushima look more tantalising than ever.

With the next generation of consoles bearing down on us and set to be released in time for “holiday 2020”, Ghost of Tsushima looks like a bridging title that will show off the real full capacity of the PS4. Prepare to be impressed by your current-gen consoles before the next generation arrives to take over.

It’s a PS4 exclusive, of course, but we’re expecting that the PS5 will offer backwards compatibility. That will be important for a game like this, released so late in the life-cycle of the PS4.
