Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut coming to PS4 and PS5 this summer

After being rated by the ESRBGhost of Tsushima Director’s Cut has been officially revealed by PlayStation. The game will launch on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on August 20, and comes with a slew of new features — some of which will be exclusive to the PS5. Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will also include a new piece of content taking place on Tsushima’s neighboring island of Iki.

PS5 players who pick up Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will get access to the typical suite of features exclusive to the console. Haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, improved load times, 4K resolution options and a frame rate of 60 frames per second will all be present in the next-gen version of the game.

Best of all, PS5 players will finally be able to play the game with Japanese voice-over without dealing with mismatched lip-syncing. Characters will now speak with Japanese voices, thanks to “the PS5’s ability to render cinematics in real time,” according to a PlayStation Blog post. Sadly, PS4 players won’t have access to this improvement.

A new expansion for Ghost of Tsushima was also revealed. It sends Jin to Iki island to deal with its own Mongol threat. The DLC will give players access to new content, including new enemies, armor, techniques, and even armor for your horse. And according to a tweet from Andrew Goldfarb, the communications manager at Sucker Punch Productions, players will even be able to feed monkeys, a game-selling feature.

The game can be purchased on the last-gen console for $60 while the PS5 version will cost $70. Upgrades to this new version of the game will not be free for current owners of Ghost of Tsushima, either. Those who own the game on PS4 can pre-order an upgrade to the Director’s Cut for $20 or upgrade straight to the PS5 Director’s Cut for $30. If you purchase Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PS4, upgrading to the PS5 version costs just $10.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Two squads of heroes clash in an Overwatch 2 trailer.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

The PS5 Pro may be coming even sooner than we thought
Two versions of the PS5 next to each other.

An enhanced PlayStation 5, colloquially known as the PS5 Pro, is all but officially confirmed now, with a new report revealing that dev kits for the enhanced console are in the hands of developers and that Sony wants games for it ready by August.

Last month, internal documents revealing the specs of the PS5 Pro leaked. It won't offer a massive leap in power, but it will have a better GPU and some new machine learning technologies, and it should make things like ray tracing and stable frame rates much more possible with games made for the PS5. On Monday morning, The Verge released a report affirming the leaked specs and confirming that PS5 Pro dev kits are now in the hands of more developers.
