The Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut release date has been confirmed by SIE and Sucker Punch Productions, delivering the new Iki Island expansion and new Legends content to PS4 and PS5 next month.

Earlier this week, an ESRB rating for the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut was surprisingly uncovered.

It's time to get hyped — check out the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut Announcement Trailer!


What's New in the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut?

The Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut will include a new Iki Island expansion as reported on the PlayStation Blog,, giving players a new adventure to explore. Naturally, this new island will also feature new enemies for you to fight.

The Director's Cut also marks the debut of a native PS5 version of the game. The Ghost of Tsushima PS5 version will add haptic feedback and adaptive triggers support along with 3D audio, faster load times, an option to play in 4K, and a target of 60FPS.
