Ghost of Tsushima: Legends
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a brand new, online cooperative multiplayer experience that will be a free update for all Ghost of Tsushima owners.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends features two-player story missions and four-player survival missions, as well as a Raid that will be released in the weeks following launch.
Once players have downloaded version 1.1, they’ll notice a new character at various towns and locations in Tsushima… Gyozen the Storyteller! He’s heard the rumours about the Ghost of Tsushima, but he has a different perspective about what’s actually happening in his homeland.
Speaking to Gyozen will give players access to the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends lobby, but players can also get there directly from the title menu or the pause menu… or by accepting a PSN invitation from a friend!
In Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, players are able to pick between one of four classes; Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, and Assassin, with each one having their own unique advantages. When players start Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, they’ll be able to choose which class they want to unlock first and as they rank up, they’ll unlock each of the remaining classes.
In addition to each starting with their own unique ability, each class can unlock an alternate ability as players progress, as well as earning class-specific Charms and ranged weapons.
While playing with friends, players can mix and match classes however they’d like, whether that’s a party of four all playing the same class, everyone playing as a different class, or any combination in between.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends Story Missions are designed for two users, and take players through Gyozen’s stories about what’s really happening in Tsushima. When players unlock higher difficulties, they’ll face new encounters, tougher enemies, bonus objectives, and greater rewards.
- Survival Missions – In Survival, you can team up with three other players to fight off waves of enemies while defending different locations in Tsushima.
- Raid – You’ll need all your skill, top-tier gear, and a great 4-player team to be able to survive in Iyo’s realm! The Raid is an epic three-part adventure that will require excellent teamwork and communication to overcome. It will be released in the weeks following the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends also brings a few new exciting features! Photo Mode is still present in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends and players will be able to show off all the new masks, armour, and emotes they’ve earned.
Legends is packed with new cosmetics, and they’re all unlocked through gameplay without any microtransactions. Looking cool is important, but Ghost of Tsushima: Legends gameplay progression really centres around the gear players have equipped and the techniques they have unlocked. They’ll be rewarded with increasingly rare and powerful gear as they take on greater challenges, and they’ll unlock new techniques as they gain experience with each class.
Some new Trophies have also been added for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, which will appear in a separate section of your Trophy list and do not count toward Ghost of Tsushima’s Platinum Trophy.
