The director’s cut for the acclaimed Ghost of Tsushima game has finally been announced. The game is set to arrive to PS4 and PS5 consoles on 20th August.
Sucker Punch, the studio that developed Ghost of Tsushima, confirmed that the Director’s Cut will include a brand new Iki Island story expansion. It takes place on an island adjacent to Tsushima.
Besides that, there will be a bunch of new content and features included. In fact, there will also be some upgrades specifically designed for PS5.
According to the announcement, the upgraded PS5 features include: a DualSense Adaptive Trigger and Haptic Feedback support, 3D surround sound audio, 4K resolution with 60 fps, and enhanced load times.
If you’ve already started or have finished the game on PS4, don’t worry. Players’ progress will carry over from the PS4 version to the PS5. Players can either pick up where they left off, or jump straight to the Iki Island arc. But, they must finish Act 2.
Take note that there’s no details of how the cross progression works as of yet.
Sony also gave a brief description of what we can expect from the new Iki Island adventure.
If you’re a history buff, you may have read that apart from invasion in Tsushima, the neighbouring island of Iki was also invaded, right around the same time as well.
The Iki Island expansion will tell a new tale of Jin Sakai’s journey and how he ends up investigating the rumors of Mongol presence in Iki Island.
In the announcement, there will be more to share in regards to the story of Iki but we do know that this story will be quite personal to Jin as he has to relive some traumatic moments from his past.
Finally, the Director’s Cut and Iki Island story expansion will offer players new Trophies to unlock.
