Skills and Abilities
Ghost of Tsushima is a third-person action-adventure game set in an open-world representation of 13th century Japan. Story events focus on the island of Tsushima inhabited by ancient warriors known as samurai.
The game follows the story of Jin Sakai, one of Tsushima’s last samurai, during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. Jin survives a fateful encounter with the Mongol forces while his clan is wiped out, vowing revenge on the invaders.
Deeming the samurai’s way of combat unsuitable for defeating the Mongols, Jin abandons it and becomes known as “the Ghost”, using stealth, cunning, and fear to exact retribution and stop the foreign threat from reaching Japan’s mainland.
Players will travel and explore a massive world using way points to guide them to their next objective. As with most open world titles, players can complete a multitude of side quests to obtain various equipment, upgrades, and other useful items to help them progress through the game’s main story.
As the Ghost, Jin will be able to utilize the terrain to move undetected. Players can scale and cling to walls, and jump from vantage point to vantage point to approach targets while staying in the shadows.
Ghost of Tsushima features intense melee combat, utilizing dodges and parries to evade and counter enemy attacks. Stealth gameplay is also emphasized, particularly after Jin adopts his persona as the Ghost and will have access to a variety of weapons and tools to cleverly assassinate targets.
One of the main mechanics of combat in Ghost of Tsushima is the Resolve system. When defeating enemies in battle, yellow circles will accumulate just above Jin’s health bar at the lower left corner of the screen. These can be used to either restore Jin’s health or perform devastating attacks to quickly take out foes, requiring the player to manage these resources in the heat of encounters.
