Ghost of Tsushima update 1.1 will drop soon. Version 1.1 will add the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends co-op mode and the ability to head back into the single-player campaign in New Game Plus mode. There's also a new merchant, some new UI options, and more.

What's coming in Ghost of Tsushima Update 1.1?

First up, Ghost of Tsushima's flashy new Legends co-op mode is coming in the new update. Legends boasts its own co-op survival missions designed for two players but supporting up to four. You'll be able to select from four classes: Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, and Assassin. Each will have its own special skills and set of cosmetics to earn through play. A Raid mission will also be added to the game in the weeks following Update 1.1. This mission is designed for four players and will be a three-part adventure testing communication and player skill.

Legends mode will be getting its own set of trophies. They won't count towards the total in the main Ghost of Tsushima game, so if you're worried about losing that platinum, you needn't be. Here's a quick rundown of the four classes which will be available in Legends mode. You'll be able to mix and match these classes as you see fit, but if you're tackling the raid mission, you'll probably want one of each. Here are the classes:

  • Samurai - a health-sustaining melee class with a special that slashes through enemies
  • Hunter - a ranged sniper class with a special that fires multiple arrows at enemies
  • Ronin - a support class that can revive allies and also summon a spirit dog (which you can definitely pet)
  • Assassin - a sneaky damage class with a special that allows them to teleport across the battlefield

What's being added to Ghost of Tsushima's single-player mode?

It's not just multiplayer fans being catered for in this update. Ghost of Tsushima Update 1.1 adds a New Game Plus mode, which allows you to run through the campaign again but with all the techniques, gear, and vanity items you've gained in a previous playthrough. Difficulty will also be increased accordingly, but if you're feeling the burn, you can still notch it down in the main menu. New Game Plus players will also receive a brand new horse, a range of new charms to unlock, and a set of new trophies. Like the Legends trophies, these won't count towards your main total in the core Ghost of Tsushima campaign.

 
 
The Ghost Flower Merchant in Ghost of Tsushima
If you play Ghost of Tsushima's New Game Plus mode, you'll be able to earn exclusive Ghost Flowers.

In addition to the new content above, New Game Plus mode will also feature a new Ghost Flower Merchant NPC. If you complete quests in New Game Plus that you've already tackled before, you'll gain Ghost Flowers instead. You can exchange these flowers for new armor dyes and other vanity items, so it's worth going back to quests you've already done and taking them on once more.

Finally, Ghost of Tsushima is getting a new Armor Loadout option, which lets you switch between armor and charm sets on the fly. When you're selecting a saved game, you'll now notice that your total playtime is displayed on the save screen, and you'll also notice some new options on Photo Mode to make your samurai snaps look extra bucolic. Plenty of stuff to sink your teeth into if you're a Ghost of Tsushima fanatic.

Ghost of Tsushima Update 1.1 launches on October 16th.

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.
