PlayStation revealed new details and gameplay footage for Sucker Punch’s upcoming Ghost of Tsushima title during Sony‘s recent State of Play broadcast. The 18-minute footage introduces protagonist Jin Sakai, the mechanics of exploration, combat, customization, and more.

Instead of utilizing a HUD, the game uses wind and animals to help guide players to hidden shrines or collectibles. The video also showcased some gorgeous vistas like bamboo forests, open plains, and other environmental locations. It then delved into how combat is handled, which Sucker Punch noted was inspired by samurai films and one-on-one standoffs that result in single-blow kills and impressive parries.

Players can choose to play Jin as an “honorable” samurai or use stealth and assassination tactics to kill as the game’s titular Ghost. Jin can also be customized with various cosmetic outfits that actually improve or grant abilities. Ghost of Tsushima can be played entirely in Japanese and there’s even a black-and-white mode that further lends itself to its cinematic inspirations.

Ghost of Tsushima will be out for the PlayStation 4 on July 17.
