With seven days left until Ghost of Tsushima starts slicing enemies around, and about four until the review embargo is up, PlayStation 4 owners can start their preloads.

As for the file size, the initial download of Ghost of Tsushima comes in at around 40GB, although there's more to come after that. 

There should be three additional patches as part of the day one update, and these will bring your Ghost of Tsushima installation to version 1.03. The day one update is expected to be around 9GB. 

If you preordered the Ghost of Tsushima Deluxe Edition, expect to download an additional 22GB worth of skins, art, commentary and so on.

Sucker Punch recently discussed the Kurosawa Mode, claiming they've gone through a bunch of possible names before thinking how it would be cool to name it after the master of the cinematic depiction of the lone warrior fantasy.

In fact, they've gone to great lengths to ensure Ghost of Tsushima captures the swiftness, intensity and the dramatic weight of Kurosawa's movies, translating them into a playable experience that will put every PS4 player in the middle of the action. And there's certainly no shortage of action in it.

Ghost of Tsushima director Nate Fox said of the process, "I think one that is just crystal clear is the movie Sanjuro. It's a film that features, at the very end of it, a standoff between two samurai. The tension that those two warriors have, they wait for the other to make a first move and then one of them dies with just one stroke of his sword. We tried to translate that into the standoff in our game very directly."
