Sucker Punch has officially announced Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. The new version will be released on August 20 on PS5 and PS4 and will include the original game plus all additional content released to date. The Director’s Cut will also introduce a new adventure for Jin and a host of new features.
Following the recent classification on the ESRB, Sucker Punch has officially announced Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut for PS5 and PS4. This new edition includes the original game and all additional content released to date, but a brand new adventure for Jin and a host of new features.
The new chapter will take place on the new Iki Island. In this new story, Jin travels to the island to investigate rumors of a Mongol presence. But he soon finds himself involved in events with deeply personal interests that will force him to relive some traumatic moments from his past.
More details on Iki’s story will be shared at a later time. On the other hand, today, the developers confirmed that the new island also features tons of new content, including brand new environments to explore, new armor for Jin, his horse, new minigames, new techniques, new types of enemies etc. The Director’s Cut will also offer new trophies to unlock for new Iki Island content on both platforms.
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut will also include some new additional features. Thanks to the PS5’s ability to play footage in real-time, footage in Ghost of Tsushima and Iki Island on PS5 will now offer lip-syncing for Japanese voice acting.
Additionally, Ghost of Tsushima, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and the new expansion Iki Island will benefit from haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. There will also be improvements to 3D audio on PS5 and drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options, and framerates aimed at 60 FPS.
If you already own Ghost of Tsushima on PS4, you will be able to transfer their save to PS5 to pick up where you left off. New Iki Island content will be available for new players starting with Act 2 of Ghost of Tsushima after reaching the Toyotama region.
In addition to the Director’s Cut, anyone who already owns Ghost of Tsushima will be able to download a patch containing some new updates. Again, many of these updates are tied to users’ constant stream of feedback since the game’s launch. All players will receive a patch with some new photo mode updates, new accessibility options for controller remapping, and the option to enable target lock during combat.
Finally, for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, some new updates will also be released, including a completely new mode revealed in the coming weeks. All updates for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be available at no additional cost to owners of any version of Ghost of Tsushima on both platforms.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be released on August 20 for PS4 and PS5. It will be possible to pre-order digitally on PlayStation Store or physical versions from various retailers. By pre-ordering, you will get a mini digital soundtrack featuring tracks from the original Ghost of Tsushima and two new Iki Island songs, and a digital artbook with a selection of Ghost of Tsushima artwork and ten new Iki Island concept art. Further details on the updates will be available on the PlayStation Store near the launch.
