Ghostwire: Tokyo is the new single-player action-adventure thriller from Tango Gameworks, the studio led by the legendary Shinji Mikami. Thanks to the muscle of PS5, the team has been able to develop its vision of the city without technical limitations. Console features play a critical role in bringing the experience to players in a unique way.
Connected to Tokyo
The functionalities of the console will allow us to discover the city like never before. From sound to touch, Ghostwire: Tokyo integrates these elements as an indivisible part of the proposal. It is the ideal example of how the emotional wall between the player and what he sees on the screen has been broken down; you are completely immersed in the experience.
“This version of Tokyo is not something you’ve seen or heard of before,” revealed Kenji Kimura, director of Ghostwire: Tokyo, during his reveal. “You will hear and find sounds that you would not normally hear around the city in real life. Our hope is that with 3D sound you feel compelled to search and identify what is causing those sounds that you hear.” At that time, Kimura valued 3D spatial audio technology. Thanks to it, it will be possible to identify the origin of sounds in a much more precise way than before.
Immersion gains another layer thanks to DualSense. Adaptive triggers and haptic feedback take your experience to another level. Akito’s supernatural abilities have a unique and defined response on command. For example, during combat you can execute enemies by grabbing their core by using some kind of ropes. The triggers emulate the resistance of these as you strain to pull them off.
Akito will improve his abilities the more points you invest in them. As they get older, their response to him on the DualSense will be more forceful. You will feel in your own hands the way in which the protagonist becomes the scourge of the yokai.
Tokyo night photography wouldn’t be the same without the countless neon displays and signs. Its reflection on the surface colors the stage like few other cities in the world. Ghostwire: Tokyo makes use of the latest image processing techniques with a clear goal: to faithfully convey the unique lighting that occurs in the Japanese capital. Ray tracing allows you to display reflections in real time with a quality impossible to achieve in the last generation. That, together with the loading speed of the SSD memory, will allow you to be at the moment in the action enjoying the scenery. No more loading times of several minutes.
