Ghost of Tsushima is a new open-world game from developer Sucker Punch that combines action and stealth inside a beautifully atmospheric version of feudal Japan...

E3 2018 Gameplay Debut

Since I'm a huge fan of the inFamous games, I'm so ready to play this one. From what I understand, Jin is supposed to gain supernatural (ghost) powers at some point. I will love being a terror of the invading Mongols.

I was not a fan of the inFamous series. It was a very shallow open world with an interesting character. Unfortunately the latter didn't make up for the former. It's funny how Prototype came out around the same time, as they both are extremely similar, and I have the same feelings about that series.

The only other thing Sucker Punch has under its belt is the Sly Cooper series. So call me skeptical of this highly scripted demo loop.

Ghost of Tsushima was a nice surprise at E3.

For the record I loved infamous 1 & 2.

This and Spider-Man were the two games I'm most interested in, from the Sony press conference. It looks amazing.

I love From Software but of the 2 major feudal Japan combat games shown at E3 I actually liked the trailer for Ghost of Tsushima more then Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice...although I'm sure Sekiro will be amazing when it's released

I wasn't too interested in this game when it was announced, but having played Nioh since and seeing this new demo has definitely piqued my interest. The effects shown there, the flowing grass, blowing leaves, transparency effects, draw distance, etc., all being shown simultaneously make it seem impossible for it to be on current gen consoles. Yet they've confirmed it was running on a PS4 (Pro, but I'm sure the base PS4 will look just as good at 1080p or so). But the combat mechanics seem pretty damn fluid and believable as well.

The quietness on the Eastern Front has led to speculation that Ghost of Tsushima will be launched alongside the PlayStation 5. After the absence of any updated info coming out this year, Sucker Punch and Sony have included the E3 2018 video in their TGS showcase.

I've been wondering the same with TLoU2.

If TLOU2 doesn't launch this year, I'm going to be so friggin mad, I'm going to write and e-mail to Sony/ND explaining to them how upset I am, then they'll know my name is the LORD and I will lay my vengeance upon thee! *unloads pistol*

Anyways, this game looks good too, but it's hard to get too hyped for a new IP from a dev that I haven't played any games from so far.

In all honesty I didn't find Infamous to be anything special despite high praise from press and gamers. Not having played the games until 5 years after the first was initially released probably didn't help because by that time I pretty much had played every other open world game on the market. I was simply bored to tears.

But remember that people were writing off Horizon Zero Dawn leading up to its release due to Guerrilla's history with the Killzone franchise, and now HZD is considered one of Sony's best exclusive titles.

Infamous 1 & 2 were pretty great. Infamous Second Son kind of took a nose dive. I'd like to see it make a comeback still. There is a lot of potential for the series.

Nice, I figured with them withholding the date so long, it would be a cross-platform launch with the PS5 and on PS4, or they would at least announce it for the PS5 along with the launch date on PS4. The trailers they've shown so far definitely seem like they could be on next-gen hardware, which makes it all that much more impressive if they were indeed ran on PS4 (Pro at least) hardware.
