Will Ghost of Tsushima be Available on PS5?

by John Martin Engineer

Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, Ghost of Tsushima is an action-adventure game that features an open world for the players so that they can explore it. Published by Sony Interactive Entertainment particularly for the PlayStation 4, this game revolves around one of the last samurai of the Tsushima Island, Jin Sakai. The game has been recently released on July 17, 2020, and has received widespread praise for its combat and visuals. However, it has also received some criticism regarding its repetitive gameplay mechanics.

Gameplay & Mechanics

The Ghost of Tsushima portrays the view of the 13th century. It has been completely set on Tsushima Island where you can see a diversified category of buildings and regions, like the fields, ancient forests, shrines, villages, mountains, farms, and many more epic scenes. During the gameplay, you will also come to direct interaction with many other characters and allies.

As we have already discussed, it comes under the category of stealth and an action-adventure game that is available for playing from the perspective of a third-person. Ghost of Tsushima features a broad open-world location that can get navigated very easily, and without any guidance. Different parts of the game world can be traveled with a horse ride.

The areas that seem difficult can also be reached with the help of the item that will act as a grappling hook in order to let you access the area. In between the game, you can also interact with the non-playable characters, and it also features some side quests. The players can counter the enemies with the help of the “katana” and blow fatal strikes with it. The game, as discussed earlier, can also be played in the stealth mode where you can easily invade and attack the enemies in their areas. Currently, it is available for only PlayStation 4 but will it be available on PlayStation 5? Let us have a detailed discussion over this in the below-mentioned paragraphs.

Will Ghost of Tsushima be Available on the PS5?

Recently, the well-known game developer Sucker Punch has released Ghost of Tsushima, on the PS4. The game has already received widespread praise for its visuals and combat. The game has received majorly positive reviews from critics, which makes it one of the best games for PS4.

But as we all know and also the company has announced the launch of the PS5 in late 2020 between October and December, many of us are left wondering that, will the Ghost of Tsushima be available on the next generation gaming console by Sony, i.e. PS5. The developers have not confirmed the availability of the game for PS5 yet, but that doesn’t mean, you will not be able to see it on the next generation gaming console.

Sony has officially announced the backward compatibility of their next-generation PS5. This feature will make the PS5 compatible for playing the games of the previous generation gaming consoles. So, we are fully confident that the Ghost of Tsushima will also be compatible with the PS5. Even Jim Ryan, the PlayStation’s CEO, has already confirmed that all the games that are submitted for the certification July 13, 2020, onwards, on PS4 will be compatible with the all-new upcoming PS5. And the Ghost of Tsushima has been released after this announcement, so it will not get affected by the company’s policy. It will be compatible with the PS5. And also, being one of the biggest titles on the PS4, this is also certain that a PS5 version will also get announced at some point in the upcoming days.


At this instance, no one literally knows when the PS5 version of the game will get revealed. If the company announces it very soon, it would have an adverse effect on the sales of the PS4 version of the game. So, we should not expect any announcement related to the PS5 version of the Ghost of Tsushima even later this year after the release of PS5. Once the PS5 releases, the players as assumed will be able to play Ghost of Tsushima on it through its backward compatibility feature. Apart from all this, Ghost of Tsushima is now exclusively available for PS4, and you can play it to find out the reason why it is getting so much praise from the critics.
