Gamers eager to see more of Sucker Punch’s upcoming game, Ghost of Tsushima, are in for a treat this week as Sony has announced a brand new State of Play for the game. According to the announcement tweet from @PlayStation and a blog post from Sony, Thursday’s State of Play will only look at Ghost of Tsushima and Ghost of Tsushima alone.

No new PS5 info or updates will be included, and no other game trailers will be shown. We’ve been itching to see more gameplay for Ghost of Tsushima for a while, so we’re genuinely excited to be getting a full 18 minutes of it this Thursday. To check out the game, you’ll want to tune in to Sony’s State of Play stream on Thursday, May 14 at 1:00 p.m. (PT) and 4:00 p.m. (ET).

The show will air on YouTube and Twitch. The State of Play will reportedly offer an “extended look at new gameplay footage, including exploration, combat, and more,” according to Sony’s blog post. Unfamiliar with Ghost of Tsushima and want to quickly catch up with what the game is all about. On the listing for Ghost of Tsushima on the PlayStation website, the game is described as follows:

“In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan. As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands as one of the last surviving members of his clan. He is resolved to do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima.”

Ghost of Tsushima is scheduled to release on July 17 exclusively for PlayStation 4. To get hyped ahead of the game’s release, we highly recommend checking out Sony’s special State of Play for the game airing on Thursday, May 14 at 1:00 p.m. (PT) and 4:00 p.m. (ET) on Twitch and YouTube.
