Someone has let the cat out of the bag early and leaked most of the gameplay details from the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. The leak revolves around the PS5 gameplay including how the DualSense works with the game. It also touches on the new Iki Island content. Unfortunately, the leak can’t be stopped at this time. Walmart in the US put the game on the shelf early and users were able to purchase it before they pulled it down.
It goes without saying that this leak is big and it will spoil the experience for you if you’re going into the game. Please, proceed with caution to avoid spoilers.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut Details
Ghost of Tsushima Legends (the multiplayer) has two new survival maps in the Director’s Cut. Sucker Punch has also added new Iyo chapters into the game. It is unclear whether or not these are tied to the leaderboards or a new raid.
When it comes to the main game’s content, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut now adds the ability to replay past duels and missions. This includes main missions and side quests. However, the duel replayability is exciting. Players can now go back and fight specific enemies over again to experience the intense sword combat. We don’t know how the difficulty scales to these battles and whether or not you can increase the challenge to add some further excitement.
The leak claims that Iki Island now has its own introduction sequence. According to the report, the introduction plays out similar to the original game’s opening where players gallop through the flower fields on their horse.
As for the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut map size, Iki Island is reportedly quite large. The leaker did share a screenshot of the map, which is still shrouded in fog to avoid any major spoilers. It is tough to compare the map to the original game’s content but it seems to be the same size as the first act of the game.
When it comes to the PS5 details, the leak suggests that the game looks superb on the console. Players will immediately notice the increased draw distance on the PS5. The haptic feedback also adds subtle nudges to the game world while walking around and horse riding. Of course, the added 60FPS render mode makes everything look smoother than before.
Thankfully, nothing about the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut story has been shared yet so the internet is a safe place for now. Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is set to release this Friday, 20 August for PS4 and PS5. The review embargo drops tomorrow at 14:00 CAT. However, we won’t be sharing our thoughts on this Sony release as the media have not received codes in SA. Check out the trailer down below.
