Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is out next month with the all-new Iki Island expansion in tow, but how much content can we expect from this DLC? Will it just be a quick snack, or something more substantial? We will, in a new interview with Push Square, Sucker Punch promised something similar – both in area to explore and length – with the original game’s first act set in Izuhara.
If you’re familiar with Ghost of Tsushima, Iki Island is as big as, really, the first act of the main game, Izuhara. It’s a big, dense story with lots of landscapes and secrets to discover.
Ghost of Tsushima’s first act is the longest in the game, lasting from 10 to 20 hours, depending on whether you choose to clear all of the side content. So yeah, Iki Island is a pretty substantial expansion, on a par with other Sony semi-sequels like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. You can also expect a pretty daunting challenge from the DLC, as Iki Island is designed for people who have already mastered the main game…
The Iki Island expansion is available once the player gets into Act 2. However, we also wanted to embrace our players who had faithfully played all of Ghost of Tsushima and wanted to have this experience. So the Iki Island expansion is going to take on some sort of difficulty for those players who have really explored the latitude and breadth of Tsushima Island.
For those who haven’t kept up, the Iki Island expansion is included in Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut. Those who already own the PS4 version of Ghost of Tsushima can upgrade to the Director’s Cut for $20 — there’s no free “Smart Delivery” style upgrade for PS4 owners. If you’re new to the game, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut costs $60 on PS4 and $70 on PS5.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is coming to PS4 and PS5 on August 20.
