The only "souls" element is the player invasions as Muss says. I can definitely see the Hitman comparisons though!

Mostly however it really does just look like Dishonored to me. Which is no bad thing at all

The thing I'm curious about is how much replay value it might have, will folk play it and experience the multiplayer along the way and not return after finishing it? If so then you might have to play Deathloop within the launch period (let's say 2 weeks to a month) to see it at it's best.

Mas they're a lot of games that I'm not super into either, other than hades. But imagine having a lot of the good things in those games. The tension of a souls invasion and that risk of losing some progress, the unpicking an areas secrets in a hitman, the addictiveness of a hades, but also the convenience of a Bethesda game. And by the latter I mean that the game will always point you in the right direction for the main plot as a skyrim would, but there's still some mystery for those that want to do side things. And like I said before you aren't massively punished for dying.

It's a little more than just the invasions being souls like, if you die before banking loot then you lose it, but the game plays quick enough for that to not be a bother.

I think the player count will fall off a bit but the ai does a decent job at hunting you so even when offline you have that risk. The peer to peer connections can be very poor when invading which is a shame and there can be a lot of downtime when invading due to map size. You don't have the same sense of risk as the invaded so I can see people being less likely to invade if the connections stay a bit dodgy.

But invading friends would always be fun.

Yeah maybe you're right but I'm happy to wait to it's on Game Pass as like Jas says about the multiplayer it be new on Xbox then, hopefully be people playing.

While if I bought in sale on PS5 in let's say April, would people be around still.

Ahh yeah, forgot your PS5 broke down Mas. I definitely think people would still be playing it by then but if having it while it is new is important then Gamepass will be the better option. The game gradually introduces you to stuff, and has a pretty fair difficulty curve.

I've had my new PS5 for a few weeks now, have posted some games finished etc and just started Kena which maybe 2hrs in seems very good.

I've started playing the PS5 version of Ghost of Tsushima. From what I have played so far, colour me very impressed! I'm usually not one for open world games, especially those with outrageously large maps *cough Red Dead 2 * as I often think they're just too much of a time sink. I feel like this game could go that way ultimately but the combat system is really fun. In motion I absolutely feel like a Samurai, and the world around me is absolutely beautiful.

It's the little touches as well though, with stuff like the wind assisting your navigation, that works thematically and mechanically. There are problems here and there, the Mongols seem to be quite happy to attack you one at a time which is a bit silly, but it's all forgivable at the moment because the combat is still challenging enough for me at the moment.

Yeah the combat kept me interested with Ghost of Tsushima, enough to get the platinum. Looking back, it was a bit like Assassin's Creed as far as checking off lists and lots of "go here, kill this person, then go here". But as you say, I actually looked forward to each fight and the horse riding is glorious when the open-world is so beautiful. The story packs a punch too - great game.

Ghosts of Tsushima will be the next new PS4 game I buy, although I want to finish off Nioh and the Spidey DLCs first.

I think it's a Ubisoft open world game done right though. The quests and collectables are all very mechanical for sure, pretty window-dressing aside, but the core loop is good.

It's also a game that's generally quite happy for you to approach problems stealthily or as a swordsman as there are relatively few missions which require you to sneaky throughout. It also does not do that ridiculous bit of gating you have in the Assassin's Creed games where enemies all have level numbers above their heads and if your level is lower you can't kill them, even though the enemy model is the same one you've fought a million times before.

Everything about the progression so far, having just finished Act 1 now, feels much more natural here. And I think that's really important. There's just something I can't stand about the abstractions the Creed games make, but I'm not finding that at all here.

It won't win any storytelling prizes, but I do think the Ghost of Tsushima does a pretty decent job with its characters and the plot too.
