A day after the team at Sucker Punch Productions announced that Ghost of Tsushima has gone gold, it seems that thanks to be power of modern technology, we already have the details for Update 1.01!
Coming in at a reported 7.7GB, Update 1.01 will do the following for Jin’s quest for revenge:
- Various localization fixes
- Other bug fixes
A pretty vague update, if this information is correct, so that’s why we decided to combine TWO post into one! The official ESRB rating has been revealed and it appears to be a ‘cheeky’ affair:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a samurai (Jin Sakai) on a quest for vengeance against Mongol invaders in 13th century Japan. Players traverse open-world environments, interact with characters, complete quests (e.g., assassination), and infiltrate enemy strongholds. Players use samurai swords, poisoned darts, and bows to battle enemies in melee-style combat. Some attacks result in dismemberment and/or decapitation of enemy soldiers, often accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Players can also perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring.
Right as I was about to finish this article, an official blog post went live detailing the depth at which Sucker Punch went to get the sword gameplay just right.
Ghost of Tsushima hits the PlayStation 4 on July 17th. Are you ready, Brah?
