Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan – until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting – the way of the Ghost – as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan. – Sucker Punch

Brian Fleming, Producer at Sucker Punch Productions says Ghost of Tsushima is an epic, open-world samurai adventure set during the Mongol invasion of Japan, 1274. “We’re telling an original story set in the world of feudal Japan – a time of warfare, chaos, and violent change.”
You will be playing as Jin Sakai, but you’ll also gather friends on your adventure, one you of these friends is Masako, the archer, who is visible within the début trailer above. Brian describes Masako as a deadly onna-bugeisha who teams up with Jin to save their homeland from the Mongol invaders. Masako’s tragic personal history is said to drive a wedge between Jin, which ultimately forces you to duel at the end of the experience, Brian says.
Sucker Punch says Masako is only one of the many side characters and quests that make up the structure of Ghost of Tsushima. Besides maintaining your own storyline narrative within the game, these side characters will also provide the player with quests and stories for you to explore.
