Sony’s hit game and Sucker Punch Ghost of Tsushima gets an enhanced Director’s Edition for the PS4 and PS5 that will include a new island to explore and all of the content that has been released so far for the original game. The enhanced game will be available on August 20.
The new content takes place on Iki Island, and Sucker Punch says there will be new story content, characters, environments, armor, enemies, and more. “There are even new animals to stroke! Sucker Punch’s Andrew Goldfarb said in a blog post.
In addition to the additional content, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup will also have features exclusive to the PS5, such as the use of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers on the DualSense controller. Additionally, the PS5 version of the game will feature lip-synced vocals for the Japanese voiceover option, responding to a major criticism of the original version.
“There will also be improvements to 3D audio on PS5, along with significantly improved load times, 4K resolution options and frame rates targeting 60 FPS” for the PS5 version of the game, Goldfarb said. It’s unclear how these updates may improve over the PS5 Sucker Punch optimization patch. released last year.
If you already have Ghost of Tsushima, a patch will be available with “some” of the new updates when the director’s cut becomes available, according to Goldfarb. Current owners will also be able to transfer their save to the PS5 version.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup will launch on its own for $ 69.99 on PS5 and $ 59.99 on PS4. But if you have the PS4 version of the original game, the path to upgrading to the director’s version is a bit complex. Here’s how Sony presents it:
