It’s sometimes hard to describe a big-budget game as a surprise hit, but that’s exactly what Ghosts Of Tsushima is. Sucker Punch’s samurai epic dropped last month to much fanfare even if it didn’t reinvent the wheel. But now Sony’s 4th biggest launch in the US is now getting some DLC. A brand new mode called “Ghosts Of Tsushima Legends” coming to the game this fall. Creating a vision for Ghosts Of Tsushima multiplayer that no one asked for but everyone’s happy about.

The main story of “Ghosts” is that of Jin Sakai, a samurai looking to liberate Tsushima Island from a Mongol invasion. Through the game, you slash, sneak and smoke bomb your way through the Mongol Horde. While the conflict with the Mongols is certainly important, its Jin’s journey from Samurai to (basically) ninja that drives the plot. The game’s gorgeous visuals and intuitive combat help to capture the feeling of the Samurai era. But the game is 100% a single player experience…that is until the Fall.
In an official Playstation Blog post, Sony revealed the Legends mode. It’s a four-player, PvE experience where you and your Samurai buddies take down hordes of enemies. There’s a new Legends story where you and one other person take on baddies with new magical powers. The Raid mode will be the “endgame” of Legends, offering a challenge for only the most gifted swordsmen. In Legends, you’ll have four character archetypes to choose from. Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, and Assassin. All of them will have their own unique abilities and play styles that Sony said they’ll show more of at a later date.
While no specific date was given for the Ghosts Of Tsushima multiplayer mode. You can look forward to the update coming out Fall 2020.
