For players who pre-ordered the game in full, then they can already pre-load Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. It needs about 57.72GB according to media outlet MP1st. They only need to visit the PlayStation Store on the phone via the PlayStation App or the browser and just download the game remotely. The PS4 or PS5 consoles can do it too.
It might not work on every region, but it should start later today. It is just early for other countries.
For those who just upgraded the game because they have the original version, then they will have to wait for the full version to come out for their downloads to start. No pre-loading on their part, unfortunately.
