Here's something we didn't see coming: Ghost of Tsushima is getting a multiplayer mode. Launching later this year, Legends will be pairing two or four players together against a gauntlet of combat and challenge scenarios.
Sucker Punch Productions announced Ghost of Tsushima: Legends earlier today on the PlayStation Blog. It'll be launching as a free download for anyone who already owns the game, and you'll be able to take on Legends with one or three other players, in teams of two or four samurai.
If you opt for two players, you'll both be up against a series of story missions that escalate in difficulty. Note that these aren't story missions revolving around Ghost of Tsushima protagonist Jin (or any of the existing characters, for that matter), but will instead follow brand new characters outside of Jin, Yuna, and the rest of Tsushima's cast.
If you instead opt for the four player version of Legends, you'll all be pitted against waves of increasingly difficult enemies, some of which will even wield supernatural abilities. I guess the historical accuracy's really out of the window with this one.
After Legends first launches, there'll be a four-player raid mission coming to Ghost of Tsushima. The PlayStation Blog post touts this mission as taking you to an "entirely new realm" for the action.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends doesn't currently have a release date aside from "fall 2020." All we know is that it'll be free when it does arrive, and it'll be available for everyone who owns a copy of the base game.
