Sucker Punch has done well to make Ghost of Tsushima one of the most memorable titles of 2020. Despite the game’s current achievements, the developer chooses not to rest on its laurels just yet as it is working on Ghost of Tsushima Legends.
In a surprise announcement, the developers have revealed Ghost of Tsushima Legends. It will come in as a free update for the hit PlayStation 4 game. Here’s everything we know so far about this exciting new mode.
The developer didn’t give an exact release date yet, but it said that the update would launch sometime this fall. It will be free for players that have Ghost of Tsushima.
The game is an online multiplayer co-op that players can enjoy with up to three others. In it, players will have to choose from one of four classes, including Samurai, Ronin, Hunter, and Assassin. Each of the characters will have their pros and cons, but the developer is yet to reveal them.
Gameplay remains pretty much the same as Ghost of Tsushima based on the trailer. However, there will likely be major combat differences when it comes to the four classes. Players will have to fight through a campaign using these four characters.
Aside from going through the campaign missions, players will also have access to a game mode called Horde Mode. In it, up to four players will have to make their stand against a wave of enemies that grows difficult over time. This will be one of the biggest challenges in the game yet.
The game will not follow the story of Jin Sakai and his allies. Instead, Ghost of Tsushima Legends will follow a completely different story featuring four legends, as told by the people of Tsushima.
Unlike the base game, the upcoming mode will focus more on Japanese mythology. This means Sucker Punch has decided to stray from the realistic roots of the game. This means players will get to face mythos creatures such as Oni, or Japanese demons.
Ghost of Tsushima Legends is going to be a great addition to the already amazing title. The fact that it is a free content update makes the mode all the more exciting for players. The developers might soon reveal the exact release date, so players should keep in touch via social media platforms for more news.
