Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut has been rated for the PS4 and PS5 suggesting an impending announcement is due soon for this new version.
Ghost of Tsushima is getting a new edition called Director’s Cut. There are no additional details that confirm that this version contains new content but ESRB has rated it for both the PS4 and PS5.
Earlier, there was a rumor that suggested that a standalone version of the Ghost of Tsushima DLC expansion will be released. This will be called Ghost of Ikishima and release for the PS5. The new rating suggests that this could be true since the rating implies that there will be new content for the game.
Check out the description of the ESRB rating below.
This is an action game in which players assume the role of a samurai (Jin Sakai) on a quest for vengeance against Mongol invaders in 13th century Japan. Players traverse open-world environments, interact with characters, complete quests (e.g., assassinations), and infiltrate enemy strongholds. Players use samurai swords, poison darts, and arrows to battle enemies in third-person melee-style combat. Some attacks result in dismemberment/decapitation of enemy soldiers, often accompanied by large blood-splatter effects. Players can also perform assassination kills (e.g., neck stabbing, sword impalement) to dispatch enemies quietly. Cutscenes depict additional acts of intense violence: a soldier lit on fire and beheaded; bound civilians lit on fire and burned at the stake; a decapitated man’s head held up towards the screen. The game also depicts a man’s exposed buttocks as he bathes in a hot spring. The word “sh*t” appears in the game.
Unlike Death Stranding Director’s Cut, this version of the game is releasing for the PS4 and PS5 based on this ESRB rating. There is a rumor suggesting that a new PlayStation Event is scheduled for July 8th, so this might be one of the announcements for it.
