Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but if that beholder doesn’t think Ghost of Tsushima is a gorgeous game, then we’re not likely to pay them much heed. Sucker Punch’s foray into 13th century Japan features some truly spectacular environments and animations, capping them off with a fantastic and easy to access photo mode that goes well beyond a few simple filters.
Though the game isn’t even a week old, players have flooded social media with stunningly beautiful photos that have left our jaws well and truly dropped. Below, we’ve collected some of our favorite posts that we’ve found online, so you too appreciate the majesty of Tsushima, and the excellent artistry on show. Here are our favorite Ghost of Tsushima Photo Mode pictures:

And finally, not to toot our own horn too much, but we’re pretty proud of the snaps our own team members have collected during our time with the game so far. Honestly, when a game is this pretty, it’s a crime not to play around with the photo mode.
