Sony and Sucker Punch have released a new trailer for Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, showing off the game’s upcoming Iki Island DLC.
Announced earlier this month, this beefed up edition of the PlayStation samurai sim will launch on PS4 and PS5 next month, on August 20th.
This new trailer gives us a proper look at massive new area being added to Ghost of Tsushima. Our hero, Jin Sakai, sets sail for Iki Island after confronting a Mongol scouting party. It seems the invaders have a new leader, known only as “The Eagle”.
Of course, Jin’s expedition doesn’t go to plan. We see the PlayStation protagonist get washed up on the shore of Iki only to meet the Mongol leader face-to-face. This epilogue definitely looks like it will be a great trip.
Sucker Punch have described Iki Island as a perilous place riddled with smugglers, raiders, bandits, and crazed monks. There’s definitely something sinister afoot, though the developer also promises a story of healing.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will bring a number of enhancements for the PlayStation 5. The PS5 will now render cinematics in real time, meaning that cutscenes across both Ghost of Tsushima and on Iki Island can feature lip syncing for Japanese voice over. Additionally, all content in the Director’s Cut will be enhanced to take advantage of the DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, there will be 3D audio enhancements on PS5, improved loading time, 4K resolution options and a frame rate target of 60FPS.
