Ghost of Tsushima is an upcoming third-person open-world action-stealth video game being developed by Sucker Punch Productions exclusively for the PlayStation 4. It takes place in 1274 on the island of Tsushima in Japan. The player controls the hero, Jin Sakai, as he fights back against a Mongol invasion.
The year is 1274. 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, players rise from the ashes to fight back. But, honorable tactics won't lead to victory. They must move beyond their samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting –the way of the Ghost– as they wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.
