Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, the multiplayer co-op mode for Sucker Punch Productions’ Ghost of Tsushima, will be available this March as part of the PlayStation Plus line-up. However, despite the PS Plus store description listing it as a trial version, it’s not the case.
PlayStation recently updated their description of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends’ PS Plus version which was incorrectly listed as a “Trial”. However, they now mention that it’s actually the full version and not a trial after all.
Players who have subscribed to PlayStation Plus will be able to download Ghost of Tsushima: Legends free of charge until 4 April. However, they won’t be short-changed this time (unlike Godfall Challenger Edition) as it’s actually the full version, giving players access to everything the mode has to offer.
The updated description also goes on to state that people who already bought Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut won’t be able to redeem Legends on PS Plus, mainly because it’s already part of the game. The full description reads:
“When redeeming Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, you may see it labeled as Trial. Please click through to download – you will receive the complete standalone version of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.
Please note: This bonus game is not available to anyone who already owns a digital copy of Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut.”
Some people initially believed that we would be getting a demo or limited version of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends on PS Plus this month, but hopefully this clears up any confusion.
Legends was added in a free update to Ghost of Tsushima last year. It’s a multiplayer co-op mode where up to four players can tackle an assortment of deadly enemies inspired by Japanese mythology. Many have compared it to Nioh in its often uncompromising difficulty, but the rewards are plentiful and there’s enough content here to justify its place on PS Plus.
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is currently available on PS4 and PS5, which adds the Iki Island expansion. Legends is included as a free update to anyone who has purchased the base game or Director’s Cut. However, the standalone version appearing on PS Plus this March will naturally not include the full game.
