Description

Ghost of Tsushima for PC is an award winning action adventure open world game, with a third-person player perspective. It is set in ancient feudal Japan, but the issues faced by the protagonist will be easily understood by Western, modern players.

About the Game


The game’s storyline is a 13th-century Japanese epic, with beautiful, detailed scenery including animals (songbirds including golden ones which lead you not-so-subtly when you get lost or distracted, crickets, and foxes which you can pet) torii gates, and Shinto temples.

You are samurai lord Jin Sakai, and you are tasked with repelling the so-far-successful Mongol invaders (under Khotun Khan, who is the grandson of the acclaimed Genghis) to reclaim your land and avenge the insult to your home which has been invaded and taken over.

However, in order to succeed, you have to make some hard decisions: adhere to the strict honourable protocols of samurai, or do the ‘right’ thing morally? As you morph from Jin, the upright samurai, into ‘The Ghost,’ you will gather a motley crew of allies about you, and as you travel, you will uncover their back stories and help them resolve their issues.

Your allies include Sensei Ishikawa, the renowned samurai archer searching for his missing student; Masako, a grief-stricken mother out for revenge on those who murdered her family; and Yuna, the thief who saved your life at the very beginning of the story, and will do whatever it takes to save her brother from the Mongols.

The Nitty Gritty


As you play along the story arc, side quests and NPCs (non-playing characters) give you some guidance in your meandering, inviting you to detour and enjoy even more of the wonderfully rendered scenery. There are even moments of restful tranquillity when you can just sit and enjoy nature.

For the less peaceful moments, you have a katana for self-defence (and attack) amongst other weapons. (More about the weapons below.) You will choose to play as one of the four available classes and you can play single player mode (which is actually for one or two players) or co-op mode (which is for two or four players) or you can try your hand at the multiplayer version.

You can play in English or Japanese with optional English subtitles – however, lip-readers will quickly note that the mouth movements are for English, regardless of your language choice. You can also opt for Kurosawa mode to evoke the black and white classics of classic film-maker Akira Kurosawa, who gave the world its abiding image of Japanese samurai with his films about that chivalric world.

Side quests are known as Tales: there are standard real-life (ish) based tales and also Mystic Tales which explore the more supernatural side of things. Combat is, as you might expect, mostly katana based, and you can take out an enemy with a few skilful strokes. But, you can be taken out the same way, so you must learn to block, parry and dodge as well as swing your sword about madly. High scores enhance your experience, making precise play worthwhile.

There is no map game on the screen, in fact there are no indicators in the open world at all. While this makes it an immersive gaming experience, it can also be frustrating: until you realise that the game is packed with hints and reminders: the wind subtly blows in the direction of recommended travel. Occasionally things like plumes of smoke, bird flights, swirls of leaves, etc, will give you a slightly more urgent call to move.

You will travel by horseback in the main, and can use grappling hooks when it is necessary for you to climb up or access something out of your easy reach.

What Weapons?


As you progress you unlock ever more impressive armour, costumes, charms, many of which can be upgraded. These benefits include reduced damage, reduced enemy awareness – it takes longer for them to notice you, improved health, faster healing, or boosted melee damage. The only exceptions are head and face customisations which are purely cosmetic.

  • Katana: your traditional samurai sword, which buffs as you find power-ups and boosters, giving you, literally, the edge in battles

  • Bows: bows and arrows were the go-to weapons of the time, but these have additional extra. Different types of bows have different effects on the enemy, so have fun trying them out and take care stocking up your quiver

  • Stealth: while not traditionally thought of as a weapon, players will quickly realise that this stealth is less designed to help you creep past your enemies, but is more to allow you to get into a great position from which to ambush your enemies

  • Firecrackers: if your stealthy tactics aren’t quite working, lob a couple of firecrackers to distract or decoy them while you sneak up on them and add to your body count

  • Smoke bombs: like firecrackers, but long-lasting, smoke bombs can help you set a set or, if you don’t feel like a battle at the moment, to sneak past an enemy encampment

  • Kunai: these fierce looking stabby darts were originally thought to be masons’ tools, adapted for self-defence. Now, and in this game, they are ideal daggers, throwing knives and generally sharp spikes which help you in taking down multiple enemies at once


  • Ghost of Tsushima for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    Before you buy please check if your country has PS store - if not I'm afraid you can't play. From Serbia here and we are not able to play the game. Sony get your stuff together, you could have made so much money here. Completed the game on my ps4 and it's great tbh.

    Waited so long for this game to come to pc, feels like a dream come true, gonna play it on my Steam Deck, don't be fooled by the unsupported rating, it runs as fine as it can be, go grab a copy now if you can afford it.
    10/10 Ending! So much content!!
    • graphics are insane
    • repetitive missions
    I can recommend this game to anyone!

    It is very well optimized, been playing it on my RTX 4070 / 5800x3d.

    With DLSS Frame-gen + DLSS Quality, 1440p (using DLDSR, basically down-scaling from 1440p to 1080p resolution) I get 144 FPS locked!

    Frame-time graph is smooth.

    Besides the technical aspect, the game is great! Nice story, nice combat system

    Also thanks to the IG team, payment / delivery was smooth.

    Again, just play it !
    • Great graphics
    • Great atmosphere
    • Great storytelling
    • Minor flickers in cutscenes when using DLSS Frame-gen
    rapid, fast, cheaper than steam :)))

    |a perfect deal, for a good game,

    I cannot say anything regarding this game for the moment, i will come after few hours of gameplay to edit with pros and cons if neccesary
    Incroyable
    Ghost of Tsushima is a breathtaking masterpiece. The stunning visuals, captivating story, and fluid combat immerse you in the rich world of feudal Japan. A must-play for any gamer seeking an epic adventure!
    "Ghost of Tsushima" is a stunning achievement by Sucker Punch Productions, capturing the beauty and brutality of feudal Japan. The game's breathtaking visuals, from sweeping landscapes to intricate details, create an immersive experience.

    Fast! Thx
    Very good game
    In its current state, the game cannot be recommended. The game itself is beautiful and runs smoothly. But the sound is broken; it just cuts out at some points or disappears totally, missing story dialogue, and for some reason, not even subtitles are showing.
    • Looks really good.

    The game is very well optimized for PC. I play at 4K resolution with high graphics settings and it runs perfectly. The processor is 60 degrees, and so is the video card. Configuration: Ryzen 7 5800x, RTX 3070 Ti, 48GB RAM.

    memes, such as Fanum Tax, Gyatt, Duke Dennis, Skibidi Toilet, Rizz, mogging, and looksmaxxing, epitomize the chaotic and surreal humor dominating internet culture. These memes thrive on absurdity, inside jokes, and niche references that create a sense of community among those in the know. They often blend reality and fiction, leading to a humorous distortion of everyday life and pop culture. This genre appeals to audiences seeking lighthearted escapism, providing quick bursts of entertainment. The randomness and unpredictability of brain rot memes reflect the internet’s evolving landscape, where humor knows no bounds.
