11 minutes of footage show the canceled project of Prophecy by Sucker Punch, the authors of Ghost of Tsushima.
In these days when the players in possession of PlayStation 4 will surely be playing and discovering the lands of Ghost of Tsushima, a long video of a project started, but never continued and subsequently canceled, always by the Sucker Punch team, called Prophecy was leaked online.
As you can see from the video, viewable at the bottom of the article, the game offers very dark colors and is set in a not entirely clear medieval era. The gameplay of the now ex-project looks like a mix of the latest work of Ghost of Tsushima.
We can not only see the gameplay sequences in the 11 minutes of footage, but also several cut-scenes that show flashes of plot and graphics obviously not cared for down to the last detail. The project in this medieval city features sword fighting, many, and a kind of parkour in the purest Assassin’s Creed style.
It’s obviously a project at a very early stage of development, but it doesn’t have the same visual identity as Jin in its debut, so perhaps why Ghost of Tsushima was chosen was obvious. Unfortunately, although the premises do not seem so bad, the work will never see the light (at least not in the immediate future) nor do we know what were the reasons behind this rejection.
It is fascinating to see that a video with these characteristics, which is later polished, is so long right now; especially in what would later become fully playable. Who knows what the future holds for the company; in the meantime, you can take a look at the leaked video below.
