After being leaked earlier this week Sony has now confirmed the existence of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.
The new version of the game will release on August 20th for PS4 and PS5. It will include a brand new story expansion that takes place on Iki island which was also invaded by Mongols. This island will have new environments to explore, new armour, new mini games, new techniques, new enemies, and most importantly, new animals. The new island will also bring new trophies.
Those playing the Director’s Cut on PS5 will also get a new Japanese lip sync option, thanks to the PS5 being capable of rendering cinematics in real time. The game will also get haptic feedback enhancements, 3D audio as well as drastically improved load times and an improved resolution and frame rate.
Ghost of Tsushima Legends will also be getting new updates including a brand new mode, with more information to come on that at a later date.
If you already own Ghost of Tsushima on PS4, you can upgrade to the Director’s Cut on PS4 for $20 USD (roughly $25 AUD). If you’re wanting to upgrade to the PS5 version of the Director’s Cut, you’ll be paying $30 USD (roughly $40 AUD). If you buy the PS4 version of the Director’s Cut you can upgrade to the PS5 version for $10 USD (roughly $12) AUD)
We gave Ghost of Tsushima an 8.5/10 in our review and said: Ghost of Tsushima might be built from the same stuff as its AAA, open world contemporaries, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the best open world experiences of the generation. Sucker Punch has set its samurai fantasy apart by presenting players with a beautiful world that is rewarding to explore, with many mysteries to uncover. Jin’s story is a compelling tale pulled from the pages of the epics, and it’s just one of many that the game has to offer. The game isn’t perfect, but it’s not often I spend upwards of 50 hours playing an open world game to total completion and immediately want to jump back in, even if it’s just to sit and watch the breeze roll by.
