Action-adventure video game Ghost of Tsushima is officially the fastest selling new title ever on Sony’s PlayStation 4.
The samurai game, developed by American video game developer Sucker Punch and published by Sony, sold over 2.4 million copies within the first three days of its launch.
Ghost of Tsushima takes place in feudal Japan and follows the journey of a samurai, who is seeking to save his homeland from an enemy invasion.

The game received positive reviews, with some criticizing that it is slightly repetitive. However, the game is unique in the fact that the weather changes depending on the actions of the protagonist Jin.
The further the character strays away from the samurai code of honor, the more storms players will face throughout the video game.
Once a player stops using the skills of a samurai, and uses more ‘Ghost-driven’ actions, the more the player will face extreme winds, thunder and lightning.
PlayStation fans are still awaiting the release of the PS5, which is due in late 2020, with confirmed titles including Spiderman and Horizon franchises.
