E3 2018: Ghost of Tsushima is a samurai slasher for Sony's PS4

It was the second big thing at Sony's E3 press conference.

Imagine the Batman Arkham games, except with samurais in Japan. 

That's what Ghost of Tsushima captures, in the very best way, based on an in-depth trailer shown at Sony's PlayStation press conference at E3.

We saw the protagonist stealthily take down opponents by jumping down from ceiling beams and attacking from close quarters. There was also a sweet one-on-one samurai sword fight, something even Batman can't offer.

Unveiled last October at Paris Games Week, Ghost of Tsushima is a big project from Sucker Punch Games, the studio behind the Infamous and Sly Cooper franchises. It appears to take places during the Mongol invasion of Japan in the 1200s.
