Just in time for a weekend binge session, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is now available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 from today. Releasing for the first time on the newest generation of PlayStation hardware, with perks for those who do own a PlayStation 5, the expanded Ghost of Tsushima experience from Sucker Punch Productions includes the original game, every piece of content to date, a brand-new adventure for Jin and the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends co-op mode among other feature improvements/additions.
The Director’s Cut introduces players to a substantial story expansion for Jin set on the new, neighbouring Iki Island. In this new story, Jin travels to Iki Island to investigate rumours of a Mongol presence, finding himself confronted by deeply personal traumatic moments from his past. This expansion will feature new environments, armour and content for newcomers and veterans alike to enjoy, in addition to mini-games, techniques, enemy types and more.
The Legends co-op mode will allow players to fight alongside three others in a wave-based horde mode. For those looking to tackle story-based missions alongside friends, a two-player co-op mode for these are also available.
PlayStation 5 players will also have access to all new additional features. Thanks to the console’s ability to render cinematics in real time, cutscenes in Ghost of Tsushima and on Iki Island on PS5 now offer lip sync for Japanese voice over. The Director’s Cut also takes full advantage of PlayStation 5’s haptic feedback, and enhancements to 3D audio. Players will gain access to improved load times, 4K resolution options and framerates targeting 60 FPS.
