Ghost Of Tsushima: Director’s Cut
Tim Augustin

Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is a revamped version of its open-world game that adds a bunch of PlayStation 5 features on top of a new story expansion.

The biggest selling point of this Director’s Cut is its new Iki Island expansion, which adds a whole new region and story campaign to play through alongside the main story. This expansion becomes available to players after they complete Act 1 of the campaign - after which players get access to a much larger slice of Tsushima to explore.

Be warned: Iki Island is full of dangerous enemies and you might find them extra difficult to beat if you haven’t completed the game, or upgraded most of Jin’s gear and abilities. Returning to the game after one year was a hilariously awkward time for the samurai (aka me), who seemed to have entirely forgotten how to dodge and parry enemy attacks - or make use of his bombs and blow darts.

The new story campaign begins with Jin catching wind of the Mongol invasion reaching Iki’s shores - which especially disturbs the samurai, considering he shares a dark past with the island. Just as the main campaign brings personal stakes to the story via Jin’s relationship with his uncle Lord Shimura, this new story expands on the samurai’s relationship with his late father.
