The Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is almost here, adding new content, PS5 upgrades, a co-op mode and a few bells and whistles to last year’s pretty open-world adventure styled after classic samurai movies. I’ve been tinkering with it for a while and have a ton of impressions and footage to share.
The Director’s Cut includes the full Ghost of Tsushima game, a new Hero of Tsushima skin set, a Hachiman’s Favor charm, one Technique Point to spend on whatever you like, a digital mini art book, and a director’s Commentary – as well as a new co-operative multiplayer Legends mode, though this is disabled until launch, so we haven’t been able to try it out yet.
The PS5 version specifically also adds faster loading times, haptic feedback for the DualSense controller, a full Japanese lip-sync option, and 3D audio support. (Check out Digital Foundry’s coverage for more on that.) The real draw of the Director’s cut for fans who have already scoured every inch of Tsushima Island as Lord Jin Sakai, however, is the new content – all set on the brand new location of Iki Island.
