PlayStation’s ‘Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut’ Slices Its Way To PC

It will soon be possible to strike from a sheathed stance on PC, as open world samurai title Ghost of Tsushima is heading to Steam and Epic Games Store on 16 May. This comes four years after its debut on the PlayStation 4 in 2020, which was followed up with a Director’s Cut edition for the PS5.

As detailed on the PlayStation Blog, the PC version includes the main game, the Iki Island expansion, online cooperative mode Legends, and Kurosawa Mode. It retails for S$79.90, and will ship with tailored features such as unlocked frame rates, assorted graphics settings and presets, as well as customisable mouse and keyboard controls.

Nixxes, the studio behind the Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition for PC, is handling the port. Alongside support for Ultrawide (21:9), Super Ultrawide (32:9), and 48:9 resolutions that use a three-monitor setup, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut also supports upscaling and frame generation technologies like NVIDIA DLSS 3, AMD FSR 3,  and Intel XeSS alongside NVIDIA Reflex and image quality enhancing NVIDIA DLAA.

“This is a first for Sucker Punch,” said studio co-founder Brian Fleming. “All our previous work is console exclusive, so we are excited about all this and Nixxes was the right team to do this project. With them on board, we knew the results would be nothing short of amazing.”

No system requirements were shared, but pre-order bonuses include a New Game Plus exclusive horse, Traveler’s Attire outfit, and Broken Armor dyes from Baku’s shop. All additional PS5 features, such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, will be retained when using a DualSense controller.

Here’s an overview of the samurai epic, per PlayStation:

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is an action-adventure game set in feudal Japan. Protagonist Jin Sakai was raised and trained in the ways of the samurai. His world is shattered when a Mongol invasion defeats the samurai army of his home on Tsushima island, and he is faced with a difficult decision: honor the tradition and customs of his upbringing and maintain a fight he cannot win, or deviate from his samurai path to protect the island and its people by any means necessary.  

In his quest to reclaim Tsushima, Jin seeks the guidance and support of old friends and new unlikely allies. He must break away from tradition, become a new kind of warrior, and protect what’s left of his home at all costs.

It’s a good time to be a Ghost of Tsushima fan. Apart from the PC port releasing on 16 May, there’s also a film adaptation in the works. Director Chad Stahelski, best known for helming the John Wick movies, previously announced his plan to cast Japanese actors in the name of authenticity, marking a good starting point.
