Sucker Punch Productions put a lot of heart into Ghost of Tsushima, which makes the game so amazing. There are a ton of details hidden within the world that players might not notice first hand.
Ghost of Tsushima is an instant contender for game of the year. Aside from the great combat, it’s the world that makes the game such an amazing PS4 exclusive. There are a ton of details that players may have missed while playing the game, and here are the best ones.
If players play the game with mostly stealth and ninja tactics, they’ll find that it will rain more often. This tiny detail was shared by a developer recently. It seems like this tiny detail was made to signify Jin’s inner conflict between his honor as a samurai and what he needs to do as a ghost.
Apart from this, Jin can also change the weather by playing music on his flute. This can be done while on horseback as well.
Pet the foxes
There are dozens of fox dens scattered throughout Tsushima, and each will have a fox that directs players to an Inari shrine. Once players pray at the shrine, they should try and interact with the fox again. There are no stat bonuses to this, but they can at least pet the fox to say thank you to it.
Jin touches the grass
In Ghost of Tsushima, Jin is a calm and disciplined person. He spends the game appreciating nature as well. While walking through the tall grass, players will find that Jin will touch the grass as he passes by. It’s a tiny and useless detail, but it does say a lot about Jin’s demeanor.
The Mongols will have eagle companions with them. As per the game’s lore, these eagles have been with them since they hatched. The Mongols have raised them through and through.
If players kill a Mongol and return to its corpse in a while, they’ll see that the eagle returned to mourn the corpse of his master. It will then fly off, never to be seen again. It’s a tiny detail that shows the depth the developers went through to provide an immersive experience.
The tiny details in Ghost of Tsushima are small surprises that players will uncover on their own eventually. Of course, there’s a chance that they can finish the game without seeing or noticing any of these.
