Two months ago, Sucker Punch Productions revealed the Ghost of Tsushima multiplayer, Legends, shocking the video game community. Today, the studio has announced that Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will debut as part of a free update, Version 1.1, on October 16.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be a co-op game mode that will offer a 2-player story mode and a 4-player survival mode. The story mode will let players navigate through Gyozen’s stories about is really going on in Tsushima. When the update releases, talking to Gyozen in-game will start Legends. Although, it’ll still be accessible through the menu screen and friend invitations.
As for 4-player Survival Mode, you’ll have to defend several locations throughout Tsushima with three other players. The longer you survive, the more rewards you and your party will earn. To help with your defense, players will also be able to summon blessings like a Spirit Bear!
The survival mode will be imperative to prepare for upcoming Raids, which require top-tier gear and a solid party. Raids will be a 3-part adventure and will kick off a few weeks after Version 1.1 releases.
As for the Legends you can play as, Sucker Punch Productions detailed each one at length on today’s PlayStation blog. You can read about them at the link, but it’s important to note that the Ronin CAN SUMMON SPIRIT DOGS THAT YOU CAN PET! Take a look at the images of each Legend, below.
True to Ghost of Tsushima, there will also be a photo mode in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends. However, Version 1.1 isn’t only about Legends. In actuality, Sucker Punch is uploading a ton of stuff to their mainline game, such as:
- New Game+
- New Dyes from the Ghost Flower Merchant
- New Charms
- Armor Loadouts
Ghost of Tsushima Version 1.1 is a free update that releases October 16, 2020. Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be part of that update.
