It has been stated that a team was sent to Japan to record different sounds for the title. The quality and direction of such decisions are evident and utilised extremely well. The feel is established from the first moment and keeps hold of you all the throughout the footage.
During the reveal, several combat scenes were played out. The use of counters, clever maneuvering, stealth, and use of tools such as the grappling hook. There are bound to be a plethora of features teased and talked about in the weeks and months to come. But, as it stands, Ghost of Tsushima looks, sounds, and feels beautiful. The combat scene alone with the usage of sun set lighting, falling leaves, and gripping audio is enough to lay down you money for the experience. This is definitely a game to keep an eye out for.
