Ghost of Tsushima release date revealed

By Sam Quirke,
Our store scanners have just picked up the release date for Ghost of Tsushima, along with some details from the Store. The Ghost of Tsushima release date is June 26th 2020. PlayStation has also revealed a new story trailer, along with the Special, Collector's, and Digital Deluxe editions of the game now available to pre-order.


Digital Deluxe Edition

This edition, available for $69.99 USD/89.99 CAD MSRP on the PlayStation store, includes a digital copy of the game, the Hero of Tsushima skin set, which itself includes the Golden Mask, Body Armour, Sword Kit, Horse, and saddle, one technique point, the Charm of Hachiman's Favour, a Samurai PS4 dynamic theme, a digital art book, and the Director's commentary. Andrew Goldfarb, the Communications Manager for Sucker Punch Productions, says the commentary involves the game's creative team sitting with "a renowned Japanese historian to look at the world of Ghost of Tsushima and how it compares to the real-life events that inspired it."
