Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Sucker Punch Productions have just released a new trailer for upcoming open-world action title Ghost of Tsushima. Titled “A Storm is Coming”, the one-minute trailer shows a brief glimpse into the game’s plot and backstory.

In an overview of the game provided via PlayStation.com, it summarizes what is the backdrop for Ghost of Tsushima. Set in the late 13th century in the midst of the ravaging of most Eastern Countries at the hands of the Mongol Empire, the titular Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion led by the ruthless and cunning general Khotun Khan. Here is where our protagonist, Jin Sakai, enters. He is one of the last surviving members of his clan. Outnumbered and ill-equipped, he must set aside the traditions that were passed onto him as a warrior and create a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage unconventional warfare against the Mongols, reclaim his land, and secure the freedom of the island of Tsushima.

Just last month, we have already been treated to a 15 minute gameplay showcase that displayed the ambiguity of Jin’s combat styles: one is of an honorable samurai warrior, shaped by customs and traditions, who duels people face to face. The other is of a ghost who uses trickery and deception to gain the upper hand on the heavily advantaged invading Mongol force. Tsushima will be Jin’s playground, with sprawling fields, ancient forests, and walled settlements that can aid either of Jin’s fighting techniques. Charge enemies head-on for specific encounters that allow for it, or use the shadows to your advantage by eliminating your enemies stealthily.

Jin is also equipped with a bow which can take out Mongol troops silently and from a distance. At the end of the day, it is up to the player as to what play style will work best for them. Sucker Punch guarantees the highest amount of freedom possible for trying each and every technique out.

Ghost of Tsushima is slated to release on July 17 for the PlayStation 4.
