Ghost of Tsushima is getting free multiplayer content

Ghost of Tsushima is getting a multiplayer expansion later this year entitled Legends, which will offer two-player cooperative story missions and four-player cooperative wave encounters. This content update will be free to anyone who owns the base game.

The title Legends refers to the playable characters in the expansion, none of which are Jin, the hero of the main game. These four samurai come from mythic stories told across the island of Tsushima and will take place in a haunting and fantastical world, one filled with enemies inspired by Japanese folk tales, compared to the realistic map and human foes in the campaign.

There will be four classes to choose from: Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin, and while we don’t currently have any info on the differences between these classes, it seems like each of these will be a singular, focused iteration of the different play styles that were available to Jin.

The two-player co-op story missions will feature levels escalating in difficulty, and will expand on the gameplay featured in the main game by providing players with new, mystical abilities. With a focus on multiplayer, some of these skills will require the players to be in sync to execute them, with these attacks providing devastating results against those on the receiving end of them.

The four-player co-op survival missions will pit a quartet of warriors against waves of enemies, including the new Oni opponent. In Japanese folklore, Oni are a troll-like subset of yōkai, demonic creatures with supernatural abilities, featured prominently in another Japanese folklore-inspired gaming series Nioh.

Sometime after the launch of Legends, players will be able to attempt a raid that takes them to a new realm to face even tougher opponents and a brutal new enemy.

While Ghost of Tsushima teased elements of the supernatural and had its own mythic tales that pushed reality to its limits, at no point does the game steer away from its grounded world completely. Legends will provide an other-worldly flavor that mixes with the design and combat of the main game extremely well, all while keeping it separate from the single-player experience.

Get these 6 PlayStation VR2 launch games to showcase its features
A side view of the PlayStation VR2, which sits on a wood table.

If you're planning on buying a PlayStation VR2 at launch, be prepared for an intimidating process as you decide which games to pick up first. Early adopters will have a lot of options to choose from, as Sony's latest headset will support over 40 games at launch. The bulk of those, though, are ports of preexisting VR games from the past few years. That makes it a little tricky to figure out which games actually showcase what the PSVR2 is capable of and which will feel like a dated experience that doesn't benefit from new tech.

To help guide you, we've spent time playing through a wide variety of launch titles, from classics like Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy's Edge all the way to Horizon Call of the Mountain. While there are plenty of games that we've enjoyed, including charmers like What the Bat? and Jurassic World Aftermath Collection, six games in particular act as great showcases for various PSVR2 features.
