Ghost of Tsushima’s multiplayer Legends mode getting stand-alone release

While Ghost of Tsushima is mostly known for its stand-out single-player story, the game’s multiplayer mode, Legends, has apparently gained a fair bit of popularity. So much, in fact, that Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will receive a stand-alone release, complete with additional content for anyone that already owns the full game.

Set to launch on September 3, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be available on both PS4 and PS5 and cost just $29. According to a post on the PlayStation blog from Darren Bridges, a senior game designer at developer Sucker Punch Productions, Legends will be the same as what players will find in the full game, with the exception of some single-player rewards earned during the campaign. Legends owners will also be able to upgrade to the full version of the game for $40 on PS4 or $50 on PS5.

Along with a standalone release, a suite of new content is coming to Legends, including a new mode titled Rivals. Rivals combines PvP and PvE elements, pitting players against each other in a kind of proxy battle. Two teams of two are matched up in each game, with the goal of defeating waves of enemies. Every enemy defeated yields Magatama, a currency that can be used to purchase Shades that block opponents from purchasing their own items, place curses on them, and generally make things worse. After collecting a certain amount of Magatama, players unlock a final wave that they have to beat in order to win.

For those looking to get into the world of Ghost of Tsushima, a Director’s Cut version of the game is set to launch on August 20 for PS4 and PS5.

This game was built from the ground up for smartphones. While it's similar to the base game, the differences here are substantial enough to make even the most experienced Legends stumble a bit when sliding into this portable battle royale experience.

You will need to get a handle on more than just the new controls when acclimating to Apex Legends Mobile, and if it's your first time getting a chance to experience this free-to-play, class-based take on the battle royale genre, then you have even more onboarding needed before you can call yourself a true Legend.
