Press-Start.com.au provided some info about the game

The game takes place in the 9th Century with the game beginning in Norway before taking to you Dark Ages England
There’s four major Kingdoms – North Cumbria, East Anglia, Mercia and Essex
Settlements and raids play a big part in the game.
A big part of the game is managing your settlement, by growing it and adding people to it.
You need to take out your long-ship to go on raids, attack other settlements and use those resources to grow your own settlement
Similarly, your settlement can be raided at anytime by other people in the world.
The idea is that your settlement will be come a community where you’ll know all the people that are within it
The game will have weightier combat than that of Origins or Odyssey with bearded axes, dane axes and flails
You can dual wield any weapons in the game including swords, axes and shields (can even dual wield shields for instance)
Enemy variety is bigger than ever. The team wanted to make sure that 15-20 hours into the game, you were still being surprised with new enemy types and variety.
Levels are no longer a thing. Your character is now measured by ‘power’ which is tied to the skill set of your character
Naval combat is back with the longship playing a big part in the naval exploration and naval combat
There are pet companions in the game. We’ve had confirmation that you can call wolves to help you in battle
It’s heavily hinted that we’ll see Odin and potentially some other gods of Norse mythology in the game. An example given was Ratatoskr (a squirrel) that you’ll see in the game.
The game will support faster loading times on next-gen consoles with next-gen tech helping build a bigger, more immersive world.
The story fits into what has been setup within the worlds of Odyssey and Origins and we’ll see some familiar characters
There’s still branching dialogue with big decisions to be made along the way
The game is a single player experience, but will have online components.

Sounds good - I was pretty impressed with Odyssey so keen to give that one a go.

Exploring Tsushima

Use the "Guiding Wind" to navigate the open world - picking spots on Ghost of Tsushima's menu map will lead to an in-game wind appearing as you play. Players can then follow those winds to that location, a
Players have a horse they can call as needed. It is unclear when this is unlocked in the game.
Bamboo and Yew-Wood can be picked as a resource in the environment.
Locations include: Kashine Hills, Yagata Forest and Farmstead
A Mongol controlled farm is shown with objectives, like rescuing hostages.
In the new Tsushima demo, the protagonist Jin Sakai comes across a person by a campfire who warns him of spirits in the forest.
Jin can stop and investigate points of interest, like abandoned homes.
Foxes will guide Jin to shrines around the island of Tsushima, at which Jin can honor those shrines. Doing so earns Jin upgrades, like a new Minor Charm slot.
Once discovering a key spot, players can fast travel.

Combat, Stealth Gameplay

Jin can challenge enemies to a standoff in the environment.
Combat shown near a shipyard shows Jin using only a single slice to fell each enemy.
"Every strike must count,"
Players can parry enemies, and doing so at the last possible moment will open them up to attacks.
Change combat stances to inflict the most damage on enemies.
The same shipyard combat sequence is shown as a stealthy option. Jin uses distractions to silently sneak up on enemies as the titular Ghost.
Distractions include firecrackers, which Jin can use to lure enemies out of hiding and assassinate them. If quickly enough, Jin can assassinate multiple enemies before being spotted.
Smoke bombs can be used to avoid attacks and evade enemies who spot Jin.
Kunai can be used for quick kills.
The Mongols will "learn to fear the Ghost" and may even attempt flee Jin's stealthier actions, which players can use to their advantage.
Jin's grappling hook can be used to swing across gaps or climb up ledges.
An environmental attack is shown, as Jin uses the Mongol's own weapons as an explosive, destroying their cache and eventually decimating the shipyard.

Character Customization

Jin can be customized with various armor, which gives different mechanical advantages. It is not just cosmetic.
Players will discover charms that give Jin different benefits.
Players can choose the techniques with skill points they wish to give Jin and customize his attack strategy depending on their playstyle.

Photo Mode

Ghost of Tsushima's photo mode allows players to control the wind and its spend in a photo or video.
Songs from the score can also be chosen.
And particle effects can be changed out to let players choose different scenes.
Players can collect flowers to change the color of armor.

Voice Track, Visual Settings

A Japanese voice track can be chosen before players even begin the adventure.
A black-and-white, film grain mode can be turned on from the beginning of the game to emulate classic samurai films.
