This morning, Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed first details on Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a new co-op multiplayer* mode coming to Ghost of Tsushima as a free update for PS4 players later this year.
Ghost of Tsushima: Legends is an entirely new experience — it’s a separate mode that 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.
Legends has been designed to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. Players will be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play Legends in groups of 2-4 players and play a variety of Story, Survival and Raid missions. 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 are to be revealed.
With two players in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, players will 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 synchronisation with a partner.
With four players, players will 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 players can best the Story and Survival missions, a four-player Raid will arrive shortly after the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, sending players to an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal, terrifying enemy.
There will be much more to share on Legends as launch approaches, including details on character classes, customisation, and more, so stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog for updates.
