There’s a hefty update coming to developer Sucker Punch’s samurai action adventure Ghost of Tsushima next Friday, 16th October, introducing New Game+, co-op multiplayer, and more.
Ghost of Tsushima’s Version 1.1 update is free for all players and leads with an online cooperative multiplayer experience known as Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. Once unlocked via the PlayStation Store, players can access Legends’ story missions (designed for two players), as well as four-player survival missions. Sucker Punch says a three-part Raid for four players is also on the way, and is expected in the week’s following 1.1’s release.
Story missions are framed around Gyozen the Storyteller, a new NPC situated at towns and various other locations on the map, who offers a different perspective on events of the solo game. Speaking to him will whisk players to the multiplayer lobby (also available from the main menu), and higher difficulties can be unlocked that include new encounters, tougher enemies, bonus objectives, and greater rewards.
