A new leak suggests that there will be a Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut soon.
The leak comes from the Entertainment Software Rating Board or ESRB of the US. It clearly states that it will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PS5, and is rated Mature 17+ for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language, and Partial Nudity. It also has in-game purchases for the PS4 version.
No other details were shared on the ratings post, but it does have a rating summary. Check it here:
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a samurai (Jin Sakai) on a quest for vengeance against Mongol invaders in 13th century Japan. Players traverse open-world environments, interact with characters, complete quests (e.g., assassinations), and infiltrate enemy strongholds. Players use samurai swords, poison darts, and arrows to battle enemies in third-person melee-style combat. Some attacks result in dismemberment/decapitation of enemy soldiers, often accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Players can also perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.
This director’s cut could possibly be the one that will have the rumored single player downloadable content expansion, “Ghost of Ikishima”, which will expand further the story and gameplay. It could have new content and even a new protagonist. No official announcements to confirm this yet, but it could be possible.
Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is currently rated and will be released on PS4 and PS5. No release window yet.
