PlayStation Overlay announced for PC & Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PC specs revealed

PlayStation Australia is pleased to announce the first PlayStation title on PC that uses a new PlayStation overlay, with support for PlayStation Trophies and more, is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. The title is coming to PC on Friday, 17 May.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC contains the full game, the Iki Island expansion, and the cooperative online multiplayer Legends mode. Thanks to cross-play support, Legends players on Windows PCs can team up with players on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles and use in-game voice chat to communicate. Players will be required to sign into their PlayStation Network account to access Legends mode.

This will be the first PlayStation title on PC that uses a new PlayStation overlay, which includes players’ Friends List, Trophies, Settings and Profile. This feature is available on Windows PCs and will be accessible from the in-game menu or, for keyboard players, by pressing the “SHIFT + F1” shortcut on their keyboard.

While playing the game, players can earn PlayStation Trophies just like on PlayStation consoles. Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC shares the same Trophy set as the game on PlayStation 5 consoles*. In addition, the PC version also has full support for Achievements on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

To make use of features like Trophies, Friends list, and cross-play, players can sign in with their existing account for PlayStation Network or create a new account. The use of PlayStation overlay is optional for both the single-player experience and Legends mode.

When bringing a game over from PlayStation consoles to PC, the team at Nixxes always strives to give a great experience to as many players as possible. In Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC, players will find a range of graphics presets aimed at making the game run well on older hardware, as well as making it shine on high-end PCs.** Below players will find the details on recommended hardware for various presets that are available in the game.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC is fully optimised for ultra-wide monitors, with support for 21:9 and 32:9 resolutions. Even 48:9 resolutions and triple monitor set-ups are supported.

Players can boost their frame rates with NVIDIA DLSS 3, AMD FSR 3, or intel XeSS, or further enhance image quality with NVIDIA DLAA or AMD FSR 3 Native AA.*** The game also features extensive controller support, including full support for the PlayStation DualSense controller with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, while using a wire connection.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut releases May 17th 2024 on Steam and the Epic Games Store.
