Ghost of Tsushima sales pass 5 million milestone

Ghost of Tsushima has now sold more than 5 million copies on PlayStation 4, Sony have confirmed. Herman Hulst, Head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios and former Guerrilla Games Director, made the announcement via Twitter, adding another interesting statistic.

The PlayStation exclusive samurai sim has now become the fastest selling original PS4 IP since it launched back in July, dethroning Horizon: Zero Dawn. It’s a huge milestone for Ghost of Tsushima developers, Sucker Punch, whose previous games include the inFamous and Sly Raccoon series. Despite it’s somewhat niche appeal, their gorgeous open world homage to classic samurai cinema has been catapulted into the PlayStation hall of fame.

In our review, we scored Ghost of Tsushima a fantastic 8 out of 10:

Ghost of Tsushima is an artistic triumph, capturing a real cinematic feel through its visuals, immersive world and soundtrack. However, Jin is a serviceable main character and he and his journey to save Tsushima is often overshadowed by secondary characters and smaller, more personal stories found in the side quests. Throw in some formulaic missions and an awkward user interface, and Ghost of Tsushima is at times more style than substance.

In the months since launch, Ghost of Tsushima has received numerous game updates, adding features such as New Game+ and, of course, the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends multiplayer which we’ve admittedly fallen in love with. A massive congratulations to Sucker Punch – we can’t wait to see what they create next for PS5.

  1. I really loved this game. Not only is the gameplay rock solid, but the story and themes genuinely caused me to reflect on some of my views on world issues and current events.

    The protagonist rightly goes to any length necessary to save his people, but his mentor says that his extreme methods are causing his own people to be fearful. If he uses extreme tactics to defeat his enemies, might be do the same thing in his role as a police officer? I played during the height of the Black Lives Matter/anti-police brutally protests, and the similarities were not lost on me.
