Sucker Punch and Sony announced Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. Scheduled for August 20 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, this definitive version of the samurai game includes several important additions.
The first notable addition is an unreleased chapter in the adventures of protagonist Jin Sakai. The action will be transported to Iki Island, also in the grip of a Mongol invasion. Jin will have to investigate this attack and will be immersed in a story that will make him relive traumatic events from his past. This new scenario promises breathtaking environments, new armor for Jin and his trusty mount, techniques to learn, new enemies and even animals with which it will be possible to interact. Trophies will also be added for Iki content.
On PlayStation 5, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be even more impressive. Since the console provides real-time cutscenes rendering, scenes on Iki Island will benefit from lip-sync for Japanese voices. It was a criticism of the PS4 version of the game which, due to lack of technology, could not deliver such a degree of authenticity.
Additionally, Sucker Punch confirms that Ghost of Tsushima, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends (the multi portion) and Iki Island added to the Director’s Cut version will add tactile feedback and adaptive triggers unique to DualSense controllers. The developers have also taken care to improve the 3D sound aspect (Tempest Engine) in addition to significantly limiting load times, adding 4K resolution options and aiming for 60FPS per second.
Sucker Punch has also confirmed that it will be possible to transfer their PS4 savegame to PS5. For new and new players, Iki Island will be accessible from Act Two of the main storyline, after reaching the Toyotama region.
Along with the definitive Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, Sucker Punch is preparing a major update for the base game. Several new accessibility options are on the program, for example additional controller layouts or the option to activate a target lock in combat. You can even hide your quiver in combat.
For its part, the multi portion Ghost of Tsushima: Legends has not been forgotten. Sucker Punch is working on a new game mode that will be announced shortly. The studio reminds that all updates will be distributed free of charge.
