An eagle-eyed player spotted an intriguing Easter egg during their play-through of Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima that references Sony’s stacked roster of exclusives.

After beating Ghost of Tsushima, players will come across a small dilapidated shack housing a low wooden table adorned with various origami sculptures.

These meticulously folded paper models take on the shape of iconic characters, creatures, items, and weapons from PlayStation 4 exclusives and their associated studios, including first-party Sony developers.

God of War, The Last of Us Part II, Shadow of the Colossus, Gran Turismo, Ratchet and Clank, Days Gone, Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, Dreams, MLB The Show, Concrete Genie, and PlayStation London Studio – the whole family is there. There is one notable absentee, though: Bloodborne.

Ghost of Tsushima is the final first-party exclusive to land on PlayStation 4 before Sony turns its attention to pumping out games for the PS5.

There’s something poetic about the last book-ending exclusive referencing all those that came before in such a tasteful, setting-appropriate manner. Sony has genuinely spoiled PlayStation 4 owners this generation, and Ghost of Tsushima is no exception.
