Ghost of Tsushima’s July 17 release date is almost here, and we couldn’t be more excited. The last major PS4 exclusive before the launch of the PS5, Ghost of Tsushima was revealed with an eye-watering trailer during Paris Games Week in 2017. The game looked so impressive that fans were convinced it was being developed for PlayStation 5. Set against the backdrop of the Mongolian invasion of Tsushima, players control a conflicted samurai warrior named Jin. It’s Jin’s job to drive back and disrupt the Mongol forces by any means necessary. If you’re thinking of picking up Ghost of Tsushima at launch, then here’s everything you need to know about the Sucker Punch-developed PlayStation exclusive.
Ghost of Tsushima has a July 17 release date exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
Judging by a recent tweet shared by developer Sucker Punch Productions, the game has a midnight launch time in every region.
“Launch day has officially begun!” reads a Sucker Punch tweet. “Ghost of Tsushima is now available in New Zealand!”
This means that as long as you’ve pre-loaded the upcoming action game, you can start playing at midnight local time.
Speaking of pre-loading, Ghost of Tsushima pre-order customers can already download and install the game.
And fortunately, despite boasting a huge game world, incredible visuals and silky smooth action, the Ghost of Tsushima download size isn’t actually that big.
Excluding bonus content and other add-ons, Ghost of Tsushima weighs in at just over 35GB.
The Ghost of Tsushima download gets a little bit bigger when you start to factor in bonus content.
Fans who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition will need a further 405MB of space for the soundtrack, and around 22GB for the rest of the bonus content.
Ghost of Tsushima bonus content includes the Hero of Tsushima Skin Set, Digital mini artbook, Director’s commentary, the Samurai PS4 theme, and a whole host of in-game items.
You even get a bonus progression point, which is handy for improving the skills of the main character Jin.
Ghost of Tsushima also launches alongside update 1.04, which makes “general bug fixes and improvements” to the game.
With a game this big, you can expect more bug fixes and gameplay tweaks over the coming weeks.
