GAME ENGINE

Development history of Ghost of Tsushima

"Ghost of Tsushima" is an ambitious project developed by Sucker Punch Productions and released by Sony Interactive Entertainment in 2020. The idea for the game was born from the desire to create an immersive world inspired by Japanese history and samurai culture. The main work began in 2015, and the developers spent five years creating an epic and authentic world that would immerse players in the atmosphere of feudal Japan.

Development included intensive research into Japanese history and culture. The team even visited the island of Tsushima to better understand its geography and historical context. Particular attention was paid to detail: the voice actors were native Japanese speakers, and the dialogue was adapted to the ancient Japanese language to avoid modern expressions. Careful work was also carried out on the design of katanas and other weapons to ensure that they corresponded to historical prototypes.

Historical accuracy and cultural respect were key aspects of the development. For example, the character Jin Sakai uses a katana, which is a family sword with unique decorative elements. The development of the combat system was also based on historical combat techniques, which allowed for exciting duels and large-scale battles.

Graphics and visual design

The graphics in Ghost of Tsushima are one of the most impressive aspects of the game. Sucker Punch Productions has harnessed the power of the PlayStation 4 to create a visually stunning world that captures the spirit and aesthetics of 13th century Japan. The island of Tsushima has been recreated with amazing precision and love for detail: lush forests, picturesque fields and majestic mountains, each location is filled with atmosphere and details that bring the game to life.

Great attention was paid to lighting and weather effects. The system of dynamic lighting and weather changes adds realism and changes the gameplay. For example, strong winds can guide the player's path, while rain and fog add drama to battles. The color palette and attention to detail create a cinematic feel, making each scene unique and memorable.

The characters and their animation deserve special attention. Motion capture technology was used to create realistic movements and facial expressions. This allowed us to create deep and emotionally rich characters that interact with the world around them and react to the player's actions. Additionally, the Japanese and Western versions of the game feature an emphasis on cultural sensitivity, making it accessible to a wide audience​​.

Game engine

The game engine used in "Ghost of Tsushima" is Sucker Punch Productions' own solution, which was modified and optimized specifically for this game. The engine allows you to create huge open spaces without loading screens, which contributes to complete immersion in the game world. The technology allows you to seamlessly transition between different locations, providing a seamless gaming experience.

One of the key features of the engine is a navigation system based on natural landmarks. Wind, animals and natural objects guide the player, minimizing the need for interface cues and maintaining the atmosphere of the game. The engine also supports complex animations and physics, which makes combat and movement around the world realistic and dynamic.

The game engine also supports a high degree of customization of the character and his equipment. Players can customize Jin's appearance, choosing different armor and weapons that not only change his appearance, but also affect the gameplay. This flexibility allows you to adapt the play style to each player's preferences and makes the gameplay more fun.

ss d4ce3e825d9e48759f0e8732f2e705e71fa508d1.1920x1080

Finally, the engine provides high quality audio and voice acting, which is important for creating atmosphere and immersion. The soundtrack, which includes traditional Japanese musical instruments, and high-quality voice acting help create an authentic and emotionally rich atmosphere of the game.
