Sucker Punch has officially announced the rumored director’s cut of its critically acclaimed action-adventure samurai title, Ghost of Tsushima. Arriving on PS5 ($69.99) and PS4 ($59.99) consoles on August 20, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will feature a brand-new location called Iki Island, as well as PS5-specific enhancements (e.g., DualSense controller haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support), Japanese lip sync, and more. The PS5 version of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will also boast drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options, frame rates targeting 60 FPS, and enhancements to 3D audio.
If you’re a history buff, you may know that in addition to Tsushima, the neighboring island of Iki was also invaded during this time period. Today we’re excited to reveal that a whole new chapter in Jin’s journey is coming and will take place on Iki. In this new story, Jin travels to the island to investigate rumors of a Mongol presence. But soon, he finds himself caught up in events with deeply personal stakes that will force him to relive some traumatic moments from his past.
