There’s more to Ghost of Tsushima than its remarkable campaign and Iki Island. Soon after the game’s original launch on PS4, developer Sucker Punch released a meaty update that added a wealth of co-op multiplayer content.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends has just been repackaged as a standalone title on PS4 and PS5. It’s also available through the base version of the game, including the new Director’s Cut Edition.
We’ve been playing Legends since day one, putting together an essential multiplayer guide to get you started.
This is the best place to start. From learning more about the mode and gameplay mechanics, to choosing a class and weapon loadout that suits your playstyle. This guide packs in everything you need to know to get you started.
For those players who love to get up close and personal. The Samurai is the most reliable class when it comes to melee combat, able to engage hordes of enemies and draw aggro away from his teammates. A great starter class that’s easy to learn.
Each class carries a katana into battle though none rely on their ranged weapon more than the Hunter. She’s a bow-wielding sharpshooter who works best when scaling each map, looking for vantage points, and reining down arrows on her enemies.
A favourite among players thanks to their incredibly powerful stealth attacks. The Assassin isn’t exactly made of strong stuff though makes for it, deploying an array of thrown weapons and traps to disorientate opponents and get around them.
Not only is the Ronin a great all-rounder, he’s closest we have to healer in this multiplayer mode. You’ll know when you’re playing with a skilled Ronin as they weave in and out of combat, reviving fallen allies and triggering a slew of buffs and debuffs.
These spear-wielding enemies are easily the most annoying threat Legends has to offer. Here’s how to deal with them.
Each of the co-op story missions has a slew of collectible items to gather. You’ll want to learn more about these if you want to maximise the rewards you earn.
It won’t be long before you want to start power-levelling the four available classes as each have their own unlockable powers and perks. Here’s the quickest way to farm XP and prep yourself for those brutal endgame missions.
With each mission you’ll unlock new gear for your character, adding to their power level while also unlocking some handy perks. Here’s a list of every Legendary Item and what they do, offering some truly game-changing abilities.
For those who want a challenge, story missions will let you raise the stakes by triggering Gyozen’s Curse. Here’s how it works and, more importantly, how to survive.
