Ghost Of Tsushima In Black And White Has Fans Clamoring For An Official Filter (VIDEO)
Ghost of Tsushima is undeniably one of the more beautiful games presented at E3 2018. The footage shown during Sony’s conference depicted calming, sweeping landscapes, which turned to fiery battlegrounds later on in the gameplay demo. In itself, the atmosphere of the game is reminiscent to old Japanese films, which is certainly part of the overall appeal of the Sucker Punch title.
An industrious fan recently took the footage from the Ghost of Tsushima debut at E3 and implemented a black-and-white filter, and quite frankly it works perfectly for the game. Check out the black and white footage of the gameplay trailer below:
The black and white rendition of Ghost of Tsushima pumps the atmospheric awesomeness of the game up to 11, though the real selling point here is how all aspects – both combat, and Jin walking along or riding on his horse – shine with the filter applied. If the footage makes you want to rewatch Seven Samurai or some of the other old black and white Japanese Samurai films, you wouldn’t be the first.
Here’s the breakdown of the above footage, courtesy of Sucker Punch:
“In this story, Jin fights alongside another samurai—a deadly onna-bugeisha named Masako. They joined forces to save their homeland from the Mongol invaders, but Masako’s tragic personal history drives a wedge in her relationship with Jin. As you’ve seen, this ends up forcing them into a duel at the end of the experience.
Masako and her story are one of many side characters and quests that form the fabric of Ghost of Tsushima. These characters will play important parts in Jin’s main storyline, but most of them will also have side quests and stories for you to explore. In fact, the demo you just watched is part of Masako’s storyline, a side adventure off the game’s main path.”
Ghost of Tsushima arrives at some point in the future for PlayStation 4.
