While it missed E3 2017, we finally got a show of hand from the beloved longtime PlayStation developer at Paris Games Week 2017 with a reveal of Ghost of Tsushima. But what really helped shape the game was the history of the Mongol's invasion of Japan.

We've been wondering what Sucker Punch was up to for a while now, what with the company being quiet since the release of Infamous: First Light.

Ghost of Tsushima has been in development for three-and-a-half years, with the studio shifting its focus to the title once Second Son was finished up in late 2013.

The year is 1274. The PS4 game is now in development and has no release date.

Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world action game set during the feudal period of Japan, and will allow players to "see the power of the Mongol Empire first-hand". The Mongol army have invaded the island of Tshushima, and you as the player must control one of the last samurai as he attempts to fight off the invading horde.

Leicester City name Claude Puel as new manager
Jamie Vardy and Demarai Gray discuss Leicester City's approach to their win over Everton in Claude Puel's debut as manager. The latest defeat left Everton 18th in the league standings, having lost six of their opening 10 games of the season.

In typical Sucker Punch fashion, the game's trailer was CGI heavy, confirmed to be running in-game and in-engine, showcasing the stunning open world.

To celebrate the announcement of the game, a brand new trailer was released.

In a way, it's just nice to know that Sucker Punch has a new project in the works. However, "honorable tactics won't lead you to victory" and they "must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting-the way of the Ghost-as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan".
