Ghost of Tsushima: Legends coming to PS4 Fall 2020

First details on this new co-op multiplayer mode inspired by Japanese mythology.

Today I am very excited to reveal Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a new online cooperative multiplayer* mode that will come as a free download for Ghost of Tsushima owners on PS4 later this year.

Legends is an entirely new experience — it’s a separate mode that doesn’t follow Jin or the companions from his journey, but instead focuses on four warriors who have been built up as legends in stories told by the people of Tsushima. Ghost of Tsushima’s single-player campaign focuses on an open world and exploring the natural beauty of the island, but Legends is haunting and fantastical, with locations and enemies inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology and an emphasis on cooperative combat and action.

Ghost of Tsushima: Legends coming to PS4 Fall 2020

We designed Legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. You’ll be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play Legends in groups of 2-4 players. Each player can choose from one of four different character classes: the Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin. Each class has unique advantages and abilities that we’ll reveal in the future.

With two players in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, you’ll be able to play a series of co-op Story missions that escalate in difficulty, building on the foundation of combat from the single-player campaign but with new magical twists that often require careful synchronization with your partner.

With four players, you’ll be able to take on wave-based Survival missions, fighting groups of the toughest enemies Tsushima has to offer, Including new Oni enemies with supernatural abilities.

If you can best the Story and Survival missions, you may be confident enough to take on the four-player Raid that will arrive shortly after the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, sending you and your partners to an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal, terrifying enemy.

It’s been so rewarding to see the amazing reactions from all of you as you play through Ghost of Tsushima. We’ve been watching so many of you stream your playthroughs, and can’t wait to open up this new way for all of us to play together! We’re happy to offer this mode completely free to Ghost of Tsushima owners as a thank you to our players, and we look forward to hearing what you think!

We’ll have much more to share on Legends as we get closer to launch, including details on character classes, customization, and more! Thank you to everyone for your support of Ghost of Tsushima so far!

  • Awesome!!! Can’t wait!

  • Sounds interesting. Love co op. I’ll give it a try when I replay on PS5 :)

  • I’m ALL IN on this! (Here’s hoping you’re also working on a “Second Son: First Light” single-player expansion as well.)

  • I’m all in!!! Free via a update? This is how you keep players engaged, you keep the content flowing. I doubt we’ll get more free content later on but this is more then enough. Great job Sucker Punch!!

  • This is so unexpected! Awesome news!

  • Is it couch coop too? or just online coop? Local coop would be awesome! Please add

  • Wow! Feels weird getting an announcement that wasn’t leaked or even rumored. This sounds like a really cool addition!

  • Great news, Sucker Punch! This game is already a masterpiece!!!

  • This sounds awesome. I’m excited to play it. It is a wonderful game and I’m taking my time through it.

  • Maannn! I don’t hv ps plus. Can we do the story and survival missions alone or with split screen (couch co-op)??????????????????????? Plssss answer!!

  • This is awesome! Now if we can just get more PS5 announcements.

  • WOW, I was hoping for this to come out but this soon AND free? I’m hoping this will be GOTY!

  • This sounds like a lot of fun! Been trying to find a co-op game lately. Looking forward to playing soon!

  • I’m not really interested in online in gaming but congratulations for putting together your first online experience. I hope it’s well received. Shouldn’t it be treated as a separate game too and get its own standalone release for an affordable price for people that only want to buy that portion?

    • You mean like nioh then pretty much the same in terms of fantastical samurai setting.
      Or lotr shadow of war
      Recent assassin’s creed games

    • It’s free content, why the hell would they waste time making it into it’s own game? Plus you want people to pay for free content???

      Also, my dude, you literally don’t have to play it. There’s no downside to this.

    • Maybe you’re a little high and I understand but couldn’t you just idk not play that part? It’s a free update so what’s the fuss. You weird gamers are never happy damn at this point in the game you should realize crying will solve nothing lol

  • I haven’t even bought and played the main game yet, and already you deliver this! What the heck Sucker Punch! Well played.

  • I loved Ghost of Tsushima, recently got my Platinum for it. Legends has got me excited to get back into it.

    A nice move from Sucker Punch and hoping that we will hear that we will get a free upgrade to PS5 version.

  • Will there be trophies associated with Legends?

  • On PS5 we can just choose to download the Mp section of this game and gain space. Same with upcoming MP of TLOU2. Just bring on PS5 support for both TLOU2 and GOT.

  • NANI! BANKAI!

  • This “fantastic” take should be its own IP. GOT gameplay with fantastical elements and mythological creatures.

  • Couch coop?

  • 🔥🔥I’m super hyped!! Thank you SuckerPunch!!!😊😊

  • It’s really easy love you Sucker Punch, it’s really easy. Loved all of your games till now. And i’m having a blast with Ghost of Tsushima. This is the game of the year and might be the game of this gen. Thanks for this upgrade that is comming.

  • Would’ve preferred it to be a single player DLC expansion instead, as I don’t buy or play multiplayer games. Great for the multiplayer people, I guess.

    • it’s literally free. There’s no reason to complain. Also, considering the last two SuckerPunch games have had DLC/Standalone Expansions, I’d say there’s a good chance that there’ll be some single player stuff coming soon.

    • Yeah me too not interested in online mode what happens if this is a hit are we single player fans a after thought i can see it now they just keep adding missions and costumes to this like some games as service model while we get no ng+ or anything atleast let us get ng+.

    • You don’t know what they could do in the future, so entitled 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • This is unexpected and great news!

  • Sucker Punch, you are the champs!!! Provided me so much joy playing your games this generation. I can’t wait to play this.

  • If you add trophies please consider making it a completely seperate trophy list like Resident Evil 3 did with their seperate multiplayer mode. Those of us with internet that tends to be uncooperative with many multiplayer modes would appreciate it.

  • Just when you thought Ghost of Tsushima couldn’t get any better Sucker Punch add a co-op mode with additional story missions, GOTY indeed.

  • This game has been helping me through one of hte worst points in my life. When Anxiety was at its worst after losing my job, to the stress of moving and finding a new job, to the fear of having no money wondering how to make ends meet till I can sort it all out. This game really calmed my nerves. After a week of not sleeping I oddly found peace with this game and I’m on my 2nd play through after getting platinum. I’m happy to say that things are improving, but I wanted to say thank you for this game. Jin Sekai helped keep me on my feet and push through it and the beautiful world helped calm my crippling anxiety, an experience at 39 that I never had before. I really look forward to playing this co-op mode with friends once things settle down. It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited for an online mode, not since FUSE, Resistance 2, and Uncharted 2 have I been hyped for a proper co-op mode. A perfect compliment to an amazing game. I wish we had more co-op games these days as well as good strong single player games that stand well enough on their own.

  • Can’t wait until fall! And I hop this has trophies achievements

  • This is amazing. My only fear is that they won’t implement couch coop.

  • Oh great…just when I thougt that for once we could have a game that *doesn’t* charge us to death with micro-transactions…awesome…gee willickers SuckerPunch, thanks for being like every other company…talk about “living up” to your company name…

  • Will this be playable for single players?

  • Hopefully it’s playable for lone wolfs

  • This can’t come soon enough!!

  • I wonder Is this couch coop ir justo online coop?

  • I’d love to play this… on my own.

  • This games keeps on giving

  • This is amazing! I can’t wait to play this. This was already such a beautiful game to experience. I got the platinum trophy, and it felt so satisfying.

  • Don’t mean to be that guy but in the 6th Paragraph in the first sentence, did you mean beat instead of the word best?

  • AWEEEEESOME, FOR FREE??? are you kidding right?

  • Great Surprise! Can’t wait to see more.

  • This is absolutely Fantastic! Thank you and I cannot wait!

  • Awesome!! Where did this come from?

  • HELL YEAH!!!

  • mfing CHEF KISS this game and these devs doing it right 👌🏽👌🏽👌🏽

  • Ghost is my game of this entire generation …..

    But guys ?? A horde mode? Really?

    I was really hoping for a story expansion with a new character. Maybe Yuna?

    And New Game + where you get to keep everything like unlocked armours and abilities.

    ALSO — AI needs major improvements.

    — AI need to hunt LONGER when alerted, finding dead bodies, or when the player is spotted and breaks line of sight.
    — And have the AI cover a larger area when searching.
    — have the AI ‘tethers’ to their spawn points not be so rigid so they can chase the player for longer before having to run back to their spawn point.
    AI really are eager to quickly rush back to there previous behaviour loop. This is immersion breaking when they have just found a dead body or spotted you only moments ago and they rush back to sit at a camp fire etc.

    — They should also have enemy AI on horses stay mounted on their horse — by doing so it gives them a distinct advantage in combat. It also gives you a reason tactically to get them off that horse.

    2) more weapons — Yari and kusarigama

    3) more mission types — hostage rescue, but you have to lead them to a safe village. You can give the NPC basic orders FOLLOW, WAIT etc.
    Be cool if you had to save a kid. And tell them to follow only when it’s safe. You could put them on your horse.
