Sony State of Play date, time, live stream for Ghosts of Tsushima PlayStation special

Sony is getting ready to hold its first PS4 State of Play event for the summer.

Similar to Nintendo Direct conferences, State of Play broadcasts are short video streams that give fans an insight into upcoming PlayStation 4 games. 

The next PlayStation State of Play stream takes place on May 14 at 9pm BST for fans living in the UK.

Fans can watch live on Twitch or YouTube, or you can check back here at 9pm UK time for the full video embed.

The May State of Play conference will focus entirely on PlayStation exclusive Ghosts of Tsushima.

Fans can expect new gameplay footage, a deeper dive into game mechanics, plus an update on the physical release.

Sadly, however, despite Epic’s stunning PlayStation 5 tech demo, Sony won’t reveal any PS5 news or gameplay footage during today’s event. 

The news was announced by Sony over on the PlayStation Blog: “Hey folks – just a quick note that we’re finalising a special episode of State of Play airing this Thursday, May 14 at 9pm BST / 10pm CEST on Twitch and YouTube.”

“The episode will be focused entirely on Ghost of Tsushima, coming to PS4 17th July. You’ll get an extended look at new gameplay footage, including exploration, combat and more. The current cut is clocking in around 18 minutes, give or take.

“And just to be clear — there won’t be any PS5 news or updates in this episode, just a big, beautiful look at Sucker Punch’s PS4 open-world epic.

“Don’t miss the Twitch and YouTube broadcast this Thursday. See you then!”

In case you’ve missed previously released gameplay videos, Ghosts of Tsushima is a gorgeous samurai game set in late 13th century Japan.

“It’s the late 13th century, and the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations in its campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion,” reads the official description.

“As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai resolves to do whatever it takes to protect his people and reclaim his home.

The open-world game will give players the freedom to tackle enemies in a multitude of different ways. This includes one-on-one duels to the death, as well as innovative stealth action.

Fans who pre-order the game online will receive the Ghost of Tsushima digital mini soundtrack, a Jin dynamic theme for PS4, and a Jin avatar.
