The PlayStation 4 has an incredible library of exclusives with Persona 5 Royal and The Last Of Us Part 2 having both come out in 2020 alone. However, as arguably the final big PS4 exclusive before the PS5 lands in the Holidays, Ghost Of Tsushima attempts to be a befitting swan song for Sony’s current-gen console. While there’s very few reasons to be worried about Sucker Punch’s upcoming game, its review embargo lift date is still fantastic news for those who rely on reviews to help them determine whether they should buy a game or not.
Ghost Of Tsushima reportedly went gold back in late June, which means that the game will definitely meet its release date of July 17th. Seeing as we’ve just been given The Last Of Us Part 2, it’s clear that Sony is hell-bent on continuing their momentum as they build up to the release of the PS5.
However, with Sucker Punch’s upcoming exclusive being an entirely new IP, some people will be waiting for reviews to help determine whether the game is worth the full AAA fee.
What is the review embargo lift date for Ghost Of Tsushima?
The review embargo lift date for Ghost Of Tsushima is July 14th.
To be even more precise, the review embargo for Ghost Of Tsushima will be lifted at 07:00 PT, 10:00 ET, and 15:00 BST.
With the Sucker Punch exclusive scheduled to come out on July 17th, this news means that you’ll be able to consume and absorb opinions a few days before the game’s launch.
Although many people expect the game to be fantastic thanks to its status as a PS4 exclusive as well as because it’s from the developers of InFamous, it’s still fantastic news that reviews will be out in the wild ahead of Sony’s launch.
This is because early reviews help some people make better educated decisions about whether they should buy a game or wait for it to go on sale.
