This morning, Sucker Punch Productions Senior Game Designer Darren Bridges announced in a PlayStation Blog post that Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a new online cooperative multiplayer mode is coming to PS4 this Fall. Available as a free download for players who Ghost of Tsushima, Legends focuses entirely on four new warriors based on legends told by the people of Tsushima and places greater emphasis on cooperative combat and action. The trailer is embedded above with a more in-depth description of the mode included below:
In Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, 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.
Today’s announcement is definitely a surprise given that we all believed that Sony’s focus this Fall would be only on the upcoming PlayStation 5 console launch. It’s very likely that Ghost of Tsushima will also be coming to PS5 too even though an official announcement has been made yet. Stay tuned for more details.
