Ghost of Tsushima is the first non-Infamous game from Sucker Punch Productions since 2005.

If you're just starting out your adveture, we have a handful of guides that'll make your life even easier.

Remember when The Last of Us Part 2 advertised that you could kill dogs? Well I hardly killed in in Naughty Dog's title, but I sure killed a lot in Ghost of Tsushima. There are several types of enemies aside from Mongols, but most fall into one of four categories: Swordsmen, Shieldsmen, Spearsmen, and Brutes. Using the appropraite stances is key to staggering them and taking them down.

  • Sorry to be THAT GUY again, but come on A.C. How is this Android related? Is this the new covert Playstation site? Funny how the editors want transparency in companies, but apparently the readers don't warrant any here? Seriously what is with all the PS4 articles? It's OK, just say it .. :-)
  • At the very least, say up top and clearly that it's a PS4 game that is very unlikely to come to Android for years if at all. I mean, take a look at the page. It's got "Android" in the title. There's a picture of a PS4 right at the end, and a tag underneath that which says PlayStation 4, but you have to scroll through pages to get there. It's the journalistic equivalent of burying the bad news on page 30 of the small print.
  • Put PS4 in the title of the article please. I got excited about this because it looks cool and BAM ps4 exclusive. I am a pc/xbox gamer myself. PS, switch coverage would be much more relevant since the switch hardware shares dna with the NVidia shield.
  • Oh the salty tears lol
  • Don't care for this we do PS4, they do Xbox. Do them both here so o can just get my phone and gaming news in one place. Ridiculous.
  • Game looks like a system seller.
  • what the hell is wrong with that ara wagoner article about one ui? 2 article just to address about notifications?! and closing the comment section? is it really a trash of an article that needs to be split into two different title and making people unable to discuss?! android central really went downhill instead of improving itself
  • Yes!!! Yes!!!.... More!!! More,,,,,,muahahahahaaaa!!!! The butthurt is strong with this one!!! Lol
    Should've bought a Playstation lmao
  • This is just all paid advertisement. Trust nothing on this site.
