THE FOURTH ENTRY OF THIS THRILLING SERIES is set in the mid 19th century, as Japan has begun to open its borders to the Western world. You’ll play as a master-less samurai thrown into a three way conflict between the shogunate pro-governmental forces, the nationalistic isolationists, and the foreign powers who are heavily influenced by the British Navy.
Navigating this new and dangerous world, the missions you select will shape your destiny as you discover multiple endings depending on your loyalty to the three factions.
Way of the Samurai 4 features a huge selection of character customization options, equipment upgrades and a dynamic combat system that allows the player to use a vast array of melee and gunpowder weapons in order to develop their fighting skills.
Who here likes samurai? Well if you answered in the positive, have I got some news for you (though even if you answered negative I still have news for you, you just won’t enjoy it as much). Regardless, Ghostlight has revealed that they will be bringing Way of the Samurai 4 to PC (via Steam) later this year. Having won the Famitsu Gold Award, not to mention the prodigious sales of the Way of the Samurai franchise, Ghostlight have expressed their delight in being able to bring this title to PC, a platform the series has yet to explore. Though the previous titles have seen PSP, PS3 and Xbox 360 releases, Way of the Samurai 4 is the first to break this pattern, in no small part due to the work of Acquire and Spike Chunsoft, along with Ghostlight and Laughing Jackal (the team that will be handling the port).
