Ghost of Tsushima took the world by storm when it sees launch on the PlayStation 4 back in July 17, 2020. Set during the time of the initial invasion of the Mongols in Japan, players take on the role of the samurai, Jin Sakai. Particularly, as a warrior with a resolve to protect the eponymous island against the invading forces.
An action-adventure title, the game’s praised for its top-notch combat and exploration, which sees players fighting their way across occupied territories. All in the bid to reclaim them and emancipate the island from the enemy’s clutches.
The game features a picturesque view of the real historical landmass in Japan. The entire backdrop of which is made more dynamic with the use of background special effects. Seeing transitions in environmental elements like a shift between night and day or sunshine and rain in real-time.
Alone, the game is already worthy of the Game of the Year version contender for its contents and fame. But there had been an interesting rumor circulating the internet, suggesting of the game having an up-and-coming DLC. Hearsay claims that it will be labeled “Ghost of Ikishima,” although no information is given regarding contents. Without concrete information, however, it can be dismissed as merely a word of mouth.
Ghost of Tsushima getting a Director’s Cut is a topic that is worthy of anyone’s excitement and interest. Essentially an edited version of the originally released title, it entails changes that would bring improvements to the game. Inevitably, raising questions as to how Sucker Punch will deliver on enhancing an already highly-acclaimed game.
Although something the public is also yet to see, a good comparison could draw from the also upcoming Death Stranding Director’s Cut. It still is quite a mystery as to the overall extent of its changes, with Hideo Kojima at the helm. But for what were revealed during the Summer Game Fest, it’s apparent at what players can expect. That is, unless the legendary prankster himself just pulled a stunt in the form of a short video trailer. That or he either merely pays tribute to a foregone franchise that was partly his making.
