Ghost of Tsushima's Co-Op and New Game+ Goes Live Next Week

Ghost of Tsushima's Co-Op and New Game+ Goes Live Next Week

Add some more swords to the fray next Friday.

It may be the season for new games, but one from earlier this year is getting a big new update. Ghost of Tsushima's Version 1.1 arrives next week with some new updates, including its co-op Legends mode, on Oct. 16, 2020.

Announced earlier this year, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is a multiplayer co-op mode that lets players band together to take on challenges. In either two or four-person teams, you can take on survival missions and a special Raid. That's right, Ghost of Tsushima has raiding now. A new NPC named Gyozen will act as the in-game portal into Legends.

Today's PlayStation Blog entry details the classes you'll be able to choose from in the Legends mode. Samurai players are durable and can get into the thick of things, while a Hunter stands back and uses arrows to outrange enemies. A Ronin can revive the team and summon a Spirit Dog (which yes, you can pet), and the Assassin is a bit like the team's Rogue, striking single enemies for massive damage.

Gyozen will offer Story missions in Legends designed for two players, which will tell you "what's really happening in Tsushima." There are also new cosmetics and gear as well.

On the single-player front, Ghost of Tsushima will also be getting a New Game+ that starts right as Jin sets off into the open world. All techniques, gear, and vanity items will carry forward, and you'll get a new horse as well as some new upgrades.

There are a few more quality of life updates, but overall, this 1.1 patch for Ghost of Tsushima seems massive. The game didn't come out too long ago, and got a fair amount of attention for aspects like its Photo Mode.

With a new Sony console on the horizon though, it's nice to see some first-party games from earlier in the year still get updates headed into the fall. Ghost of Tsushima's update will go live next week for free for all owners of the game.
