Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut has been rated and listed over on the ESRB for PS4 and PS5. This listing arrives a few days after the reports of a standalone single-player sequel was leaked online. According to insiders, Sony is ramping up to announce Ghost of Ikishima next week during its PS5 State of Play stream.
A Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut listing all but confirms not only a PS5 upgrade for the game but also the possibility of an expansion. If reports are correct, the Ghost of Ikishima sequel is set to launch alongside this Director’s Cut. In addition, users can purchase it as a standalone game similar to Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales.
Unfortunately, the ESRB listing for Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut does not share any details on the Ikishima story or content. The listing basically runs through the original game’s content and features reading:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a samurai (Jin Sakai) on a quest for vengeance against Mongol invaders in 13th century Japan. Players traverse open-world environments, interact with characters, complete quests (e.g., assassinations), and infiltrate enemy strongholds. Players use samurai swords, poison darts, and arrows to battle enemies in third-person melee-style combat. Some attacks result in dismemberment/decapitation of enemy soldiers, often accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Players can also perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.
Sony has yet to announce a date for the State of Play stream. They will most likely do so later this week. In the meantime, catch up on our Ghost of Ikishima coverage here.
