Rise of the Ronin Trailer Highlights Traversal, Setting, and More

The action RPG’s newest trailer shines a spotlight on its open world setting and everything that it will bring to the table.

There’s no shortage of reasons to be excited about Rise of the Ronin, but the fact that it’s going to be developer Team Ninja’s first stab at an open world experience has to be high on that list. What’s been shown of the action RPG so far has painted its open world in a very promising light, and Sony has now released another new trailer that continues to do so.

The “World Vignette” trailer starts off with shining the spotlight on Rise of the Ronin’s slick traversal mechanics, which will allow players to freely go from clambering around on rooftops to soaring through the air using the device known as the Avicula to landing straight on horseback and into a quick gallop.

Also highlighted is the game’s Bakumatsu Japan- in particular, the three main cities that will serve as the map’s big hub locations, namely Edo, Kyoto, and Yokohama. The trailer ends with a few glimpses of the optional content and side activities the open world will feature, which, as you might imagine, will involve plenty of stealth and combat.

Rise of the Ronin launches on March 22 for PS5.
