Sucker Punch is planning to release a director’s cut of its critically acclaimed 2020 action-adventure game, Ghost of Tsushima. This is according to a rating for an as-of-yet unannounced Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut that was spotted on the official ESRB website, which reveals that the revised release will be available on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. There is no information on how the director’s cut will differ from the original release, but director’s cuts usually contain additional content that was cut out for creative or time-related reasons. A recent report also suggests that Ghosts of Tsushima will be joined by a standalone expansion called Ghost of Ikishima, which might be included in the director’s cut.
Players […] perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.
