Continuing through the trailer we pick up a ally and infiltrate a building rescuing a prisoner from torture, eventually we end up fighting the ally and throughout that fight we get an awesome display of combat and scenery.
Among which was the first appearance of Nioh 2. Then we did actually get to watch some Ghost of Tsushima. Presumably it, too, will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive, although that was not confirmed. On top of that, the gameplay trailer also introduces the five villains that will be in the game - and one mysterious one.
PlayStation at E3 2018 should, like Sony's past showings, focus on the games and games alone. A third-person shooter, Control takes place in a constantly shape-shifting NY building; its protagonist, Jesse Faden, has telekinetic powers. The Mongol army has invaded the island of Tsushima, and you as the player must control one of the last samurai as he attempts to fight off the invading horde. Yes, this is a combo-based fighter not unlike a Batman game, but Spider-Man's agility and gadgets help speed up the pace of fights and add variety to the mix.
We can't wait to get our hands on this game.
Among the new IP was the open-world samurai game Ghost of Tsushima, which looks both gorgeous and loads of fun.
Most notable from the trailer was the breath-taking set pieces that framed the combat, with a staged, nail-biting battle underneath a shedding blossom tree drenched in a warm sunset light rounding off the trailer from Sony's conference.
