We don't know when Ghost of Tsushima is coming out so people are playing it in Dreams

Some fans are so hungry to play Sucker Punch's Ghost of Tsushima (opens in new tab) that they've resorted to recreating the samurai adventure in Dreams. 

Dreams creator thrjoker594 (opens in new tab) released three Ghosts of Tsushima-inspired sequences last summer, and as a recent tweet from JRPyznar (opens in new tab) shows, people have latched onto those sequences once again. This is likely due to the double-whammy of Dreams' final launch and the ongoing scarcity of Ghost of Tsushima information. 

With few details to go on, outside of a summer 2020 release window, the best that eager samurai fans can do is revel in the few gameplay snippets we've seen, and replaying them in Dreams is even better. 

Youtube user Beyond Dreams (opens in new tab) compiled thrjoker594's creations in this short compilation. The first sequence is a 4v1 standoff between our protagonist and four nameless soldiers. As Twitter user MarcoAnFelo (opens in new tab) pointed out in a side-by-side comparison, this sequence is remarkably faithful to the game's original trailer. 

The other two sequences tap into Ghosts of Tsushima's stealth and scenery, respectively. One shows our hero stabbing up some Mongol invaders (I think) after descending from the rafters, and the other depicts a tranquil field and forest. It's easy to forget that this was all made (or perhaps remade) in Dreams by one dogged creator, and even after nearly a year, these creations still look incredible. 

These are the best Dreams levels (opens in new tab) you can play right now.
