Ghost of Tsushima is one of the final titles of 2020 ahead of the PlayStation 4, so be sure to secure your copy by preordering. 

Ghost of Tsushima is headed to PS4 in July, only about a month after the next big blockbuster, The Last of Us Part 2. Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, it follows the lone samurai Jin Sakai during the first Mongol invasion of Japan in the 1270s as learns the unconventional way of the Ghost, a fighting style that eventually helps him fend off the remaining Mongols.

The game employs action and stealth mechanics and is played from a third-person perspective, championing swordplay and exploration by horse across a picturesque world. It heavily resembles a classic samurai film while invoking title like Assassin’s Creed in terms of its waypoints and multiple approaches to dispatching enemies.

If you’re looking to be a part of the action when the game debuts on July 17, here’s how to preorder Ghost of Tsushima in its various editions.

How to preorder Ghost of Tsushima Collector’s Edition

The Ghost of Tsushima Collector’s Edition contains a variety of special items.

The collector’s edition of Ghost of Tsushima goes for $169.99 and comes with a variety of physical items: a Sakai mask and stand, cloth map of Tsushima, Sashimono war banner, Furoshiki wrapping cloth, 48-page mini art book, and a steelbook case. Digital items include a samurai PS4 dynamic theme, director’s commentary, a Hero of Tsushima skin set, and one additional Technique Point for use in-game.

Currently, most US retailers are actually out of stock of the Collector’s Edition and have been for some time. However, this particular edition may end up being restocked before the game drops in July, so it’s worth checking additional retailers.


Currently, you’re still able to purchase the Collector’s Edition at UK Retailer GAME at the moment as well.


How to preorder Ghost of Tsushima Special Edition

Many of the Collector’s Edition items come with the Ghost of Tsushima Special Edition.

The Special Edition comes with several of the same items you get with the Collector’s Edition, but it’s about half the price at $69.99. It comes with a special SteelBook case as well as digital items including a mini art book, director’s commentary, the Hero of Tsushima skin set, 1 Technique Point, and a Charm of Hachiman’s Favor.

This version of the game is much more ubiquitous and less difficult to get than the Collector’s Edition, so if you’re looking to grab a copy for yourself, you should have a relatively easy time doing so. It’s mostly focused on digital rewards, however, so keep that in mind if physical items are what you’re most interested in.



How to preorder Ghost of Tsushima Digital Deluxe Edition

Get the bare essentials with the Digital Deluxe Edition.

The Digital Deluxe Edition is the same as the physical Special Edition, though you don’t get the same SteelBook as you do with that option. However, you do still receive the mini art book, director’s commentary, the Hero of Tsushima skin set, 1 Technique Point, and a Charm of Hachiman’s Favor, all for the same price of $69.99.



How to preorder Ghost of Tsushima Standard Edition

The Standard Edition comes with few bells and whistles.

There shouldn’t be any issues with preordering the Standard Edition of Ghost of Tsushima, seeing as it doesn’t come with any special. It’s the most readily available version of the upcoming game and runs for $59.99, so if you want it you can select your favorite retailer and go from there.

To that end, you should be able to snag a copy easily if you head out on launch day as well, since this version will be the one that there’s the most of. But don’t get caught without a preorder if you want to make completely sure you’ll get your own copy.



Preorder bonuses available for all versions of Ghost of Tsushima

You get some perks no matter what version of the game you preorder.

You’ll get goodies with any version of Ghost of Tsushima that you preorder. Those include a digital mini soundtrack, a Jin avatar, and a PS4 dynamic theme including imagery from the game’s box art.

These items are automatically unlocked when you install the game, so you don’t have to worry about missing out on preorder items because you had to order from a different retailer.

A Pokemon YouTuber went viral after opening a Trading Card Game booster pack with two Charizards in it. The fan lost his mind after discovering the insanely rare “God” pack from the upcoming TCG Shiny Star V expansion.

Despite releasing over 21 years ago, the TCG has seen an explosion in value in 2020. Pokemon card fever has swept YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to watch their favorite personalities try to hunt down the rarest collectibles.

One content creator went viral on November 23 after opening up what is being called the “luckiest booster pack of all time.” The fan broke down in excitement after pulling two rare Shiny Star V Charizards at the same time.

Pokemon YouTuber gets luckiest booster pack ever

In November, reports began to pop up online that “God” packs were coming to the Pokemon Trading Card Game. These rare boosters are said to have a one in 600 chance of being found, and are guaranteed to only contain rare collectibles inside.

On November 23, content creator ‘Collect Pokemon‘ actually found one of these mythical packs during his live broadcast, and it contained two Charizards in it.  After realizing what he had, the fan exploded with excitement and yelled, “Oh my GOD! We did it! Two Charizards! This isn’t just a God pack, it’s a God of a God’s pack!”

The moment quickly went viral online after popular British gaming YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken posted the clip on Twitter. Many in the Pokemon card community were floored by what he had pulled, and called his item “the luckiest Pokemon pack of all time.”

At the time of writing, it is not clear whether God packs will come to the rest of the world as they are only a part of the Shiny Star V expansion released in Japan. Unfortunately, TCG sets often change drastically by the time they make their debut in other countries.

While the two Charizards are only currently worth around $800-$2,000 depending on their grading, the fan’s luck is mind-blowing to say the least. Collectors growing up in the 90s could only dream of one day opening a pack with just rares in, let alone two of the popular Fire-type starter.
