Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut arrives on PS5 and PS4 consoles, August 20

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the upcoming launch of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. Players will be able to dive into the new edition on both PS5 and PS4 consoles from Friday, 20 August.

The new edition will come packed with the original game and every piece of additional GOT content sold to date. As well as this, the Director’s Cut will include a brand-new adventure for Jin alongside a bunch of new features.

Andrew Goldfarb, Communications Manager of Sucker Punch Productions took to the PlayStation Blog to say, “As we approach the one-year anniversary of Ghost of Tsushima, we are so grateful for the outpouring of love you’ve sent us since launch… We’ve been hard at work on a brand-new edition of the game, which not only includes a new chapter in Jin’s journey, but also some new updates that are a direct response to some of the community’s most-requested features.”

Iki Island

The neighboring island of Iki was also invaded during this time period so a new chapter in Jin’s journey will take place on Iki. 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.

On both platforms, Director’s Cut will also offer new Trophies to unlock for the new Iki content.

PS5 exclusive features 

While Director’s Cut players on both PS4 and PS5 will be able to experience the Iki Island content, PlayStation 5 players will have access to a few additional new features.

The developers have listened to the feedback about the lack of Japanese lip sync in the original version of Ghost of Tsushima, and 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.

Ghost of Tsushima, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and the new Iki Island expansion will all take advantage of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the Director’s Cut. There will also be enhancements to 3D audio* on PS5, as well as drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options** and framerates targeting 60 FPS.
