Blossoms blowing once again.
Sucker Punch Productions announced Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. This compilation includes Ghost of Tsushima, as well as several updates and a new expansion that continues Jin Sakai’s story, taking place on Iki Island. It arrived on August 20, 2021 for PS4 and PS5. Depending on if you’ve already purchased the game or not, you’ll have a few different options here.
Ghost of Tsushima was well-received critically and commercially, having sold over 6.5 million copies so far. As such, the PS5 version could end up being one of the best PS5 games available.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is a new version of the game with additional content and some special features that are only available on the PS5 version. Here’s everything that’s included:
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will cost $60 on PS4 and $70 on PS5.
The Iki Island expansion takes players to the titular island. It becomes accessible once players reach Act 2 of the main story and follows Jin Sakai as he faces off against a new Mongol tribe led by a shaman named Ankhsar Khatun, or The Eagle.
Details remain thin but Sucker Punch Productions indicates that wounds, healing and trauma are major themes in this expansion. “We all suffer wounds, from the humblest farmer to the mightiest jito. Wounds from the past that we carry with us. And the thing about a wound is that you can’t fight it, or stealth your way around it. Ghost weapons and samurai techniques won’t help you. A wound can only be healed,” the team explains.
No, there is no free upgrade available for anyone who has already purchased the game or plans to purchase the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS4 version. Some other Sony first-party titles such as the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West from Guerrilla Games will be offering free PS4 to PS5 upgrades, but Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is not one of those games.
Do keep in mind that Ghost of Tsushima already received a free update, allowing anyone to play the backward compatible PS4 version on their PS5 at 60 FPS.
If you already own the game, you’ve got a couple of different options for how you want to upgrade your experience, depending on what version you own and what extra content and upgrades you’re interested in getting.
If you own the original PS4 game, you can upgrade to Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS4 for $20. Alternatively, you can upgrade to Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS5 for $30.
If you choose to purchase Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS4, you can later upgrade to Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS5 for $10.
In September, Sucker Punch plans to launch a standalone version of the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends multiplayer mode. This multiplayer standalone is available for $20. If you choose to purchase this standalone multiplayer mode, you can then upgrade to Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS4 for $40, or Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PS5 for $50.
Strike from the shade
Ghost of Tsushima was already a great game, now it’ll be better than ever with a new version taking advantage of the PS5 hardware, plus a new expansion that’ll continue Jin Sakai’s story.
For new players only
If you haven’t been able to get your hands on a PS5 and you still haven’t bought Ghost of Tsushima, this is the version of the game to enjoy. You can easily upgrade to the PS5 version later on.
