The real-world island of Tsushima was hit by a typhoon last year, damaging infrastructure, especially the historic Tori gate. Thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on Camp-Fire, which appeared to have received a substantial amount of support from the gaming community, over US$500,000 was raised to address Tsushima's infrastructure woes, 5 times the campaign's original target.

Ever since the typhoon hit, the gate was lying in disrepair, with no guarantee about government funding timelines. Because of how successful the Camp-Fire campaign was, however, Tori gate will soon be restored to its former glory.

The remarkable crowdfunding achievement is in many ways a demonstration of the runaway success of Ghost of Tsushima, one of Sony's newest first-party IPs. The game sold over 5 million copies since launch and is described by Sony as their fastest-selling PlayStation title. With Sony’s newfound commitment to PC gaming, the game might not be limited forever to PlayStation owners. In the here and now, the PlayStation 5-enhanced version offers the best experience, with a high-resolution output and a near-locked 60 FPS framerate.
