Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is coming to PS4 and PS5 on August 20 with an expansion, Iki Island, of which new details have been revealed today: the estimated size of the DLC, abilities, and more.
Ghost of Tsushima: Iki Island DLC size revealed
Some time ago, there was a rumor regarding the size of the Iki Islands DLC for Ghost of Tsushima, claiming that it should last between 15 and 20 hours. In case you’re curious to know this – and some other data –, an interview conducted recently by the Press Start website team has some answers on the subject.
“The way to think about it [referring to the length of the DLC] is that the size of Iki and the content, you know the breadth and depth, is analogous to an act in the main game. So if you think of the first region, Izuhara, it’ll have that variety and depth of content, and playtime, of course,” explained Patrick Downs, the game’s screenwriter, during the chat.
Added to this, it was said that this expansion will bring new skills and techniques to the protagonist, and new opponents will also appear with unprecedented moves. In addition, the creative and art director, Jason Connell added: “We have actual horse armour, as well as a Horse Charge ability that kind of scatters guys out of the way and you can use it every now and then and it’s quite cool.”
Other points mentioned are the ability to travel quickly between different places from a certain stretch, and support for 3D Audio. “There’s a certain point in which you can travel back and forth. Early on, you have to do some things – Iki is a tough place for a samurai – but once you’re able to, you can go back and forth freely,” said Patrick Downs, senior staff writer.
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut will be released on August 20 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
