Following days of rumors and speculations, even including rumblings of a sequel, Playstation have officially announced that they will be publishing a Director’s Cut of Ghost of Tsushima, developed by Sucker Punch Productions, for both PS4 and PS5. The PS5 version of the game will come with a plethora of technical updates, such as 4K resolution, framerates targeting 60 frames per second, haptic feedback/adaptive triggers, and lip syncing for the Japanese audio track.
While those technical update are exclusive to PS5, all Director’s Cut players will get a brand new expansion to play through. This expansion sees protagonist Jin Sakai traveling to Iki Island, a place not far from his home of Tsushima. While specific details are vague at best, the expansion will give players a new story to follow, along with new enemies to battle, new gear to acquire, and new mini-games to play.
The Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will officially release on August 20th 2021. Players who own the original game will be able to upgrade it to the Director’s Cut for a smaller fee (prices may vary). Brand new players on the other hand will be able to pick up this version for $60 on PS4 and $70 on PS5 (roughly £45/£50 respectively).
Developed by Sucker Punch, Ghost of Tsushima is an open world samurai game about Jin Sakai, a man tasked with saving his island home of Tsushima from Mongol invaders. Since its release in July of 2020, the game has seen major critical and commercial success. Along with getting rave reviews from most major publications, the game has sold around 6.5 million copies as of March 2021, with the number likely having increased since then.
