Ghost of Tsushima: Legends Raid release date and requirements confirmed

Sucker Punch are getting ready to unleash their toughest challenge yet for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Later this week, the co-op multiplayer mode will introduce a three-part Raid to the celebrated PlayStation exclusive title.

The Tale of Iyo has a confirmed release date of Friday October 30th – Sucker Punch are likely to provide an exact time at a later date though we’d hazard a guess that it will go live at the same time as the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima: Legends weekly challenges. That would be 08:00AM PT (or 15:00 GMT for the UK crowd).


Before you can even attempt The Tale of Iyo you need to meet a couple of entry requirements. Players must have a Ki (combine gear score) of 100 – if you’re struggling, then we have a super easy gear farming guide to help you out.

You will also need to have a full party of four players. The Ghost of Tsushima: Legends Raid demands co-operation and teamwork so matchmaking has been disabled. We’d strongly advise finding other Ghosts in-game and shooting them friend requests ahead of the Raid or scout online for others looking for a group.

In order to fully prepare yourself for The Tale of Iyo, make sure you have unlocked all the techniques for your chosen class, configuring their loadout to suit the scenario. Each class has their own combat role so it’s best to have at least one tank player drawing aggro, one solely focused on damage, and one laying down support/healing. Ghost of Tsushima: Legends has a selection of Legendary Items which can be a major help, each one slotted with its own unique ability.

We’ll have more on the Raid when it goes live over the weekend!
