Well this was unexpected. Ghost of Tsushima is receiving a Director’s Cut which will be released on both PS4 and PS5. The new edition comes with the original game, all of the additional content that has been added, as well as a bunch of new features which we will shortly breakdown. Players will be able to explore the entirety of Tsushima in a whole new light and replay the story that gripped so many of us.
One of the biggest features coming to the Director’s Cut is Iki Island. This brand new island will feature tons of new content including brand new environments, armor for Jin and his horse, unique mini-games, techniques, enemies, and… wait for it… New animals to pet. Now, this island won’t just be available to explore. Iki Island comes with its own story.
“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.”
This element of the Director’s Cut will become available from the beginning of Act 2 once you’ve made your way to the Toyotama region. Of course, a brand new story aslo means more trophies to unlock. We will glady Platinum Ghost of Tsushima again. Bring it on.
There will, however, be some major differences between the PS4 edition and the PS5. The most exciting feature that will unfortuntely be exclusive to the PlayStation 5 is the new Japanese Version. Thanks to the PS5’s ability to render cinematics in real time, the lip synching animation will now match the Japanese voice over. This is an incredibly exciting development. As much as we wanted to immerse ourselves in the amazing voice acting done by the Japanese cast, it was somewhat difficult to truly appreciate it when the visuals didn’t match.
The Director’s Cut will also implement some of the PlayStation 5’s most impressive features. Haptic feedback and adaptive triggers will play a big role in this new edition and there will also be some enhancements in regards to the load times, 4K resolution and framerates which will target 60 FPS.
All players will receive a new patch which will offer alternate controller layouts, as well as the otion to enable a target lock-on during combat. This next one is oddly specific… The Director’s Cut has a feature which will let players hide Jin’s quiver during gameplay. We’re not entirely sure why this feature has been added. Our guess is that it’s for players who are concentrating more on sword combat rather than ranged.
Players who enjoyed the Legends mode will also be able to enjoy an all-new mode. Details on that mode will become available in the coming weeks. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for those details.
While we wait for more news, you can check out the announcment trailer below:

This is incredibly exciting news and we can’t wait to see how this develops. We absolutely adored Ghost of Tsushima and we can’t wait to dive in again to relive the outstanding story of Jin Sakai as well as explore new areas and take on new enemies. Do they really think they can take on the Ghost and win?
