We’re happy to announce that on August 20, we’ll be releasing Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on both PS5 and PS4 consoles. This new edition comes packed not only with the original game and every piece of additional content we’ve sold to date but a brand-new adventure for Jin alongside a bunch of new features that we’re excited to reveal.



In this new story, Jin travels to the island to investigate rumors of a Mongol presence. But soon, he finds himself caught up in events with deeply personal stakes that will force him to relive some traumatic moments from his past.

This new island also features tons of new content including brand new environments to explore, new armor for Jin as well as his horse, new mini-games, new techniques, new enemy types, and much more. There are even new animals to pet!

Exclusive Features for PS5

PS4 owners can transfer their Ghost of Tsushima gaming progress to the PS5 console. For new players, the new Iki Island content will be available beginning in Act 2 of Ghost of Tsushima, after you’ve made your way to the Toyotama region.


While Director’s Cut players on both PS4 and PS5 will be able to experience the Iki Island content, PlayStation 5 players will have access to a few additional new features.

We’ve heard your feedback about the lack of Japanese lip sync in the original version of Ghost of Tsushima, and it’s something we worked hard to address in this new release. Thanks to the PS5’s ability to render cinematics in real-time, cutscenes in Ghost of Tsushima and on Iki Island on PS5 will now offer lip sync for Japanese voice-over.

We’re also happy to confirm that Ghost of Tsushima, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and the new Iki Island expansion will all take advantage of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the Director’s Cut. There will also be enhancements to 3D audio (Require 3D audio with stereo headphones & analog or USB connection) on PS5, as well as drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options, and framerates targeting 60 FPS.

Finally, for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends fans, we’ll also be releasing some new updates, including an all-new mode that we’re excited to detail in the weeks to come. All Ghost of Tsushima: Legends (PlayStation Plus membership requires) updates will be available at no additional charge to owners of any version of Ghost of Tsushima on either platform.


Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be available to pre-order on August 20, 2021, for $69.99 for PS5 (See at Amazon), and $59.99 for PS4 (See at Amazon or PlayStation Store). Those who already own Ghost of Tsushima on PS4 can upgrade to Director’s Cut on PS4 for $19.99 on the same date.

If you bought Director’s Cut PS4, you’ll be able to upgrade to Director’s Cut PS5 at any time for $9.99. You can also upgrade directly (from the original Ghost of Tsushima PS4) to Director’s Cut on PS5 for $29.99.

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut Pre-order is also available on Best Buy at the same price.
