Ghost of Tsushima: Legends was first announced back in August. The mode brings co-op and multiplayer play the samurai action game.
Legends will be installed with version 1.1 of the game, which is due out on October 16th. Sucjker Punch has outlined quite a few details over on the PlayStation Blog.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends
Ghost of Tsushima brings co-op and multiplayer modes to Sucker Punch’s open-world epic. There will be new two-player story missions, four-player survival missions and a raid which will come a little later.
In order to access the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends content, you’ll need to speak to a new character called Gyozen.
Gyozen can be found in various towns and locations throughout Tsushima. He is the author and gatekeeper of the stories that are found in the new Legends mode. Speaking to Gyozen will take you to the Ghost of Tsushima: Legends lobby but, you can also access it from the main menu, pause menu or from a game invite.
The Legends story missions are for two players and will take you through Gyozens stories about what’s happening in Tsushima. The story missions sound like they will have difficulty tiers to unlock, with higher difficulties bringing harder encounter and enemies and bonus objectives. Of course, higher difficulties will also reward better gear.
Survival missions sound much like a horde mode. Team up with three other players to defeat waves of enemies while defending locations in Tsushima. Survival missions will have blessings where you and your team can activate things like “ignite enemies” or “summon a spirit Bear”.
The Raid will be released within the weeks following the launch of Legends. It sounds like it will be pretty difficult and p0ossibly something similar to a Destiny raid, albeit probably shorter. Iyo’s Realm is the name of the raid and will be an epic three-part adventure requiring skill, high quality gear and excellent teamwork and communication to beat.
Ghost of Tshushima: Legends will have four classes which you can pick from. Each class will have it;’s own advantages and you will get to pick one fo the four after a short tutorial.
Samurai sounds like it will be an all out attack class. Hunter sounds like a long-range (sniper) support class, Ronin is a healing class and assassins sounds like a stealth class with high damage attacks.
The Ronin class can also summon a spirit Dog, which you can pet.
Update 1.1 will also update the single palyer campaign. A new Game+ will be added where you can playthroguhb the campaign again but keep all your gear, consmetics and techniques from your first playthrough.
New Game + will also give you a fancy new steed to ride around on. There will also be a new flower called the Ghost Flower that can only be earned in New Game+.
Aside from Legends and New Game+, update 1.1 will also now have an option for armour loadouts. Save files will also now display your total play time and new options will be added to the already fantastic phot mode.
Ghost of Tushima: Legends (update 1.1) is ude out on 16th October.
