We’ll keep it short to avoid any spoilers and running the story. The story follows Jin Sakai, during the year 1274. He is the last samurai after the Mongol Empire invaded the island of Tsushima. In this rebirth story, you fight back to building on your samurai traditions to create a new way of fighting. Which is called “the way of the Ghost”. The story is not just a fight to free Japan but a fight within Jin Sakai himself.
The game takes place in an open-world, based in Tsushima Island after the Mongol Empire invaded. The meditative world if beautifully built with breathtaking scenes and environments. You can find yourself running through a meadow fo white tulips in front of a temple to having a sword fight during sunset under a tree as the leaves fall around you.

One of the main reasons to play this game is its combat, it’s fluid and stealthy. The video below speaks for itself. You can fight with a variety of weapons like smoke bombs, kunais, and grenades. You also have beautifully crafted armor, which you can customize with in-game skins and dye sets.
