After getting leaked two days ago, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut was officially announced by Sony today. The title will be released for PlayStation 5 and PS4 in August. At the same time, the Japanese company also announced a story expansion that was also previously leaked.
In the story expansion, you visit the island of Iki, where Jin expects a completely new chapter. In it, you travel to the said island to investigate the rumors of Mongols who are said to be there. However, what awaits Jin there forces him to revisit some of the traumatic events of his past.
The expansion promises brand new environments to explore, new armor for Jin and his horse, new mini-games, new techniques, new enemy types, and much more. We would like to present more details about this shortly.
On PlayStation 5, Ghost of Tsushima will of course be upgraded a bit, including haptic feedback and the adaptive trigger, 3D audio, optional 4K resolution or 60fps, and faster loading times. In addition, the problem with the Japanese lip-sync has been addressed, which has been improved again.
“Thanks to the PS5’s ability to render cinematics in real time, cutscenes in Ghost of Tsushima and on Iki Island on PS5 will now offer lip sync for Japanese voice over,” can be read from the official PlayStation blog.
It is also confirmed that the save game can be transferred from the PS4 to the PS5, and the PS4 version and the Legends multiplayer mode will receive some updates, including for the photo mode and accessibility options.
Recall that Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut will be released on August 20, 2021, including a mini soundtrack with tracks from the original title as well as two new songs by Iki and a digital artbook for pre-orderers.
