Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is an add-on to the Ghost of Tsushima game released in July 2020. Sucker Punch studio (creators of inFamous series) is responsible for its development. The DLC was released as a free update for all owners of the main game.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends takes place, like the original game, on the island of Tsushima, but moves players to new locations inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology.
The events presented in the feature missions are not related to the main game and its main character, Jin. Ghost of Tsushima: Legends presents a magical story about four daredevils who were regarded as legends by the Tsushima people.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a TPP action game that focuses primarily on fighting with enemies. The combat system is based on that from the main game, but it has been enriched with new attacks largely linked to the supernatural abilities of the characters. Players can choose from four character classes: samurai, hunter, ronin and assassin. Each of them has a unique set of skills.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends allows you to play in three different cooperation modes. In feature missions, close cooperation and perfect synchronization with a friend is required. In Survival Mode, you and three other daredevils must fight off waves of enemies (including those with supernatural abilities) from the Horde known from the Gears of War series. In both cases, the difficulty level gradually increases. After the premiere of the DLC, the creators also made available a third mode - Raid, which opened up access to the mysterious land and new powerful enemies. It offers the most demanding gameplay, designed for four experienced players.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is exclusively focused on online co-op gameplay for up to four players. The add-on offers three game modes: Story Missions, Survival and Raid. The first one, unlike the others, is designed for two players only.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends offers the same graphics quality as the main game. In the online modes, however, the action takes place in new locations, whose creation was inspired by Japanese mythology. Therefore, they have been given a magical atmosphere that comes from legends, which we won't see in the original game.
An active PS Plus subscription is required for online gameplay.
