Ghost of Tsushima has been one of our favorite games of the year. If you haven’t caught up on our review, you can find that here. But today, Developer Sucker Punch announced a new co-op mode will be launching this fall for the game.
Ghost of Tsushima Legends is an entirely new mode built around four new characters. Information from the PlayStation Blog is as follows:
Legends is an entirely new experience — it’s a separate mode that doesn’t follow Jin or the companions from his journey, but instead focuses on four warriors who have been built up as legends in stories told by the people of Tsushima. Ghost of Tsushima’s single-player campaign focuses on an open world and exploring the natural beauty of the island, but Legends is haunting and fantastical, with locations and enemies inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology and an emphasis on cooperative combat and action.
There will be two separate modes within the expansion.
- With two players in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, you’ll be able to play a series of co-op Story missions that escalate in difficulty, building on the foundation of combat from the single-player campaign but with new magical twists that often require careful synchronization with your partner.
- With four players, you’ll be able to take on wave-based Survival missions, fighting groups of the toughest enemies Tsushima has to offer, Including new Oni enemies with supernatural abilities.
In our opinion, this is a fantastic idea and one that we’d like to see more out of PlayStation first party to accompany their single player titles. Now that many have wrapped up their journey with Jin, it will give players incentive to revisit the world with their friends. Bring it on!
