Sucker Punch’s epic action-adventure game Ghost of Tsushima gets even more epic on August 20 with the release of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup. This is an upgraded version that includes an all-new island to explore and PlayStation 5-specific improvements such as haptic feedback and lip-syncing in Japanese.
the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup, officially announced today in an article on Blog PlayStation, is an improved version of the hit game that includes every additional piece of content released since its original release almost a year ago. On top of all that, the Director’s Cut also introduces players to Tsushima’s sister island, Iki. Also invaded during the same period of the original game, Iki delivers a whole new chapter in the story of samurai hero Jin Sakai, as he travels to Iki to investigate rumors of a Mongol presence. His investigation plunges him into events that will force him to face the traumas of his past.
With the new expansive frame, the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup will also feature improvements exclusive to the PlayStation 5, including one that gamers have been clamoring for since the game’s launch: Japanese lip sync. Players looking for the authenticity of Japanese voice acting will no longer have to deal with jarring English lip sync. I plan to replay the game just for this experience.
Other PlayStation 5 enhancements include support for DualSense’s haptic feedback and magical triggers, along with improved 3D sound, reduced load times, 4K resolution options, and frame rates targeting 60 frames. per second.
The tricky part is how to buy this new version. If you already have Ghost of Tsushima on the PlayStation 4, you will be able to purchase an upgrade to the Director’s Cup for the PS4 for $ 20. If you have the PS4 version and want to upgrade to the PS5 version, it costs $ 30. If you buy the Director’s Cup for PS4 and later decide to upgrade to PS5, you can do so for $ 10. Or if you don’t own the game at all, you can just buy the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cup in full for $ 70 on PS5, and if you’re on PS4, the total amount is $ 60. Console transitions are wonderful, aren’t they?
