Ghost of Tsushima’s 1.1 update arrives next Friday, October 16, developer Sucker Punch has announced. The free update introduces a wealth of new content to the open-world action game, including the previously announced Legends multiplayer mode, a New Game+ option, and more.
Sucker Punch shared more details about the incoming content in a PlayStation Blog post. The aforementioned Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a co-op mode that features two-player story missions as well as a four-player survival missions, with a Raid game type coming “in the weeks following launch.”
Once you’ve installed Ghost of Tsushima’s 1.1 update, you’ll need to download the Legends unlock from the PlayStation Store. You’ll also need to have an active PlayStation Plus subscription to play it with others.
As previously announced, Legends is inspired by Japanese mythology. Unlike the main game, it does not feature Jin, but rather a character of your own making. Your character can be one of four different classes: samurai, hunter, assassin, and ronin (which can summon a spirit dog that you can pet). You’ll choose one of these classes when you first begin Legends, unlocking the remaining ones as you progress through the mode.
Sucker Punch says Legends is “packed with new cosmetics.” All of these will be earned through gameplay, so the studio assures there won’t be any microtransactions. You’ll unlock rarer and more powerful gear as you complete more difficult challenges, and new techniques will be earned as you gain experience with each of the classes. Sucker Punch also says Legends will arrive with its own set of Trophies to unlock; these will be listed separately from the main game’s Trophies and won’t count toward its Platinum.
In addition to Legends, Ghost of Tsushima’s 1.1 update introduces a New Game+ mode that will let you play through the entire adventure again with all of the techniques, gear, and other items you’ve earned in your previous playthrough. You’ll also discover some new elements in New Game+, including a special horse that boasts “a vibrant red mane and unique saddle,” as well as new charms and a new type of flower called Ghost Flowers. You can exchange these flowers for more elaborate armor dyes.
