A moment of peace amidst all the action in Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut gets an exciting new addition as revealed by Sucker Punch Productions, Ghost of Tsushima’s developer.
Players can finally hang around and pet animals! That’s right: not only will players be able to pet foxes as was in the original release, players can now tame and pet cats, deer, and other animals!
Rather than just being fauna scurrying about, the Director’s Cut gives a bit of life and character to the otherwise “just there” fauna.
This was revealed on a Tweet thread published by Sucker Punch Productions themselves.
This be-able-to-tame-and-pet feature, however. is not the only addition to the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut edition. This edition also includes an entirely new area called “Iki Island”. Here, players can roam and locate animal sanctuaries to where Jin Sakai, the character the players take on the role as, can use his flute to play songs to befriend animals in those areas.
Apart from Iki Island, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut also includes an entirely new story, adding to the experience. Although the story does not exactly give off “happy vibes”, Sucker Punch Productions describes the new story as a story of “healing”.
Inside the cut
The story of this latest expansion to the game starts off with a looming Mongol threat, causing Jin Sakai to be put into motion to halt this threat. He travels to an island called Iki Island where the Mongol tribe led by Ankhsar Khatun has called that place their home.
Jin Sakai pursues this threat and players are thrust into a story where stealth and combat techniques might not be as effective when facing the burdens and wounds one carries.
The Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut also includes numerous upgraded features such as real-time rendering of cutscenes and cinematics, visual enhancements such as higher fidelity textures, higher frame rates, and 3D audio, among others.
Getting the Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut Edition
The Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut edition is set to release for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on August 20th.
There are multiple ways to grab the game. If players have a pre-existing PlayStation 4 copy, they would have to pay $20 to grab the expansion. If players want to move from the original PlayStation 4 copy to the PlayStation 5 version, they would have to pay $30 while also have the ability to retain their saves.
If players own neither copy from either systems, the Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut alone can be bought with a price tag of $70.
Ghost of Tsushima, the original release at least, is a samurai-themed action-adventure and stealth game where players take the role of Jin, a samurai warrior. It offers both single-player and multiplayer modes and is playable on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
