The action adventure “Ghost of Tsushima” is surprisingly expanded: One year after its release, the Sony development studio Sucker Punch has announced new content for the Playstation exclusive game, which will be bundled in the upcoming Director’s Cut.
The highlight of this Director’s Cut is a new story expansion called “The Island of Iki”, in which the protagonist Jin can explore a completely new region. In addition to new quests and collecting tasks, there are also additional equipment for Jin and his horse. The samurai should also be able to unlock new skills.
In addition to the story expansion, the Director’s Cut of “Ghost of Tsushima” comes with technical improvements that primarily affect the Playstation 5. These include improved loading times and revised force feedback for the dualsense controller. After the update, the action adventure should also target dynamic 4K resolution with a frame rate of 60 FPS.
PS5 version is more expensive
Sucker Punch had already released a next-gen update for “Ghost of Tsushima” last year, and the Director’s Cut apparently further improves the technology. In the future, cutscenes will also be rendered in real time on the PS5, which enabled Sucker Punch to ensure lip-synchronicity for the Japanese voice output. There are also “usability improvements” on both PS4 and PS5, as well as an expansion of the already powerful photo mode.
Sony has not yet announced any German prices for the Director’s Cut of “Ghost of Tsushima”. The Sony US blog it can be seen, however, that the Director’s Cut will be sold separately at full price (US $ 70 for the PS5, US $ 60 for the PS4) from August 20th. Anyone who already owns “Ghost of Tsushima” can buy an upgrade: it costs US $ 20 for the PS4 version and US $ 30 for the PS5 version. If you buy the PS4 version and want to play it on the PS5, you have to pay an additional 10 US dollars. Apparently there will be no way to purchase the story extension separately.
