This morning, Sucker Punch Productions Communications Manager Andrew Goldfarb announced in a PlayStation Blog post that Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is coming to both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on August 20th. The official trailer is embedded above while a quick description of the package is included below.
Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut comes packed not only with the original game and every piece of additional content we’ve sold to date, but a brand-new adventure for Jin alongside a bunch of new features that we’re excited to reveal including the addition of Iki island. There is a whole new chapter in Jin’s journey that takes place on Iki. In this new story, Jin travels to the island to investigate rumors of a Mongol presence. But soon, he finds himself caught up in events with deeply personal stakes that will force him to relive some traumatic moments from his past. Ghost of Tsushima, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and the new Iki Island expansion will all take advantage of haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in the Director’s Cut. There will also be enhancements to 3D audio on PS5, as well as drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options, framerates targeting 60 FPS, and Japanese lip sync.
You’ll be able to pre-order Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut digitally at PlayStation Store, or physical versions from various retailers. If you do pre-order at participating retailers, you’ll receive a digital mini soundtrack with tracks from the original Ghost of Tsushima as well as two new songs from Iki Island, and a digital artbook featuring a selection of art from Ghost of Tsushima as well as 10 new pieces of Iki Island concept art.
If you already own Ghost of Tsushima on PS4:
- You can pre-order an upgrade to Director’s Cut on PS4 for $19.99 USD. This upgrade will become available starting on August 20.
Starting on August 20:
- If you bought Director’s Cut PS4, you’ll be able to upgrade to Director’s Cut PS5 at any time for $9.99 USD

Ghost of Tsushima was definitely one of our highlights last year and firmly belonged in the GOTY discussion. Feel free to check Anthony Nash’s review of the game and stayed for more details on the Director’s Cut as we get closer to launch.
