Sucker Punch has shared new details and visuals for Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut along with a new trailer dedicated to the next expansion, Iki Island. As part of the Director’s Cut, this new content will allow players to experience a new story with Jin within Iki Island. There will be new locations to explore, new characters, new stories, and a powerful new enemy.
As part of the Director’s Cut of Ghost of Tsushima, players will play a new expansion of the story with Jin, set on the island of Iki with new places to explore, characters to meet, stories to complete, and more.
Jin’s journey begins when he discovers that a mysterious Mongolian tribe has taken hold of Iki. They are led by a revered shaman named Ankhsar Khatun, known to his followers as “the Eagle.” As a Khatun and a shaman, she is a conqueror of nations and a shepherd of souls. And the danger it poses to Jin and his people is unlike any they’ve faced.
The only way to counter this threat is for Jin to return to Iki Island. Been there once before. And in facing a new and dangerous enemy, he will be forced to face old fears and unearth deeply buried trauma.
The semi-fictional version of Iki Island offers a stark contrast to Tsushima. It is a wild and lawless land of marauders and criminals, marked by war memories and fiercely independent; the samurai have not been in control there for decades. As skilled as he is, Jin cannot face the Mongols alone. He will have to work with, or around, a clique of unsavory characters to battle the Eagle. The cost of failure is too high. If the Eagle and his tribe subdue Iki and garner the support of his people, Tsushima and the rest of Japan will be in grave danger.
In the fight to save Iki, Jin will encounter pirates and smugglers, mad monks, and haunted caves. There will be new legends to hear and new techniques to learn. Jin will have to use all his skills to defeat this new enemy.
The expansion in the history of Iki Island will be available as part of the Director’s Cut of Ghost of Tsushima. You can now pre-order € 79.99 on PS5 and € 69.99 on PS4, or if you already own Ghost of Tsushima on PS4, you can pre-order an upgrade to Director’s Cut on PS4 for € 19.99.
