One of the best things about Ghost Of Tsushima is the way developer Sucker Punch established our hero Jin's bond with nature. Exploration wasn't a case of following a simple waypoint, but of allowing yourself to be guided by the wind. Secret treasures were uncovered by following animals like birds and foxes to places you'd never have thought to look.
It was a wonderful feature, and one all players could get on board with. Given the incredible stats shared by Sucker Punch less than one month after release, it's safe to say that those who played the game were especially enamoured with the fact you could both pet and bow to any wild foxes you met on your travels. With so many open-world games focused on killing animals for resources, it sure was nice to get a game where you worked with nature.
Take a look at the trailer for the new, upgraded Ghost Of Tsushima Director's Cut on PlayStation 5 below:
As I'm sure you're aware, Ghost Of Tsushima Director's Cut will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 next month with a bunch of brand-new content and updates to sink your teeth into. While there's a lot to be impressed by - particularly on PS5 - there's one new feature in particular that has caught the eye of fans: more animals. Better still: more animals that we can pet.
The official Twitter account for Ghost of Tsushima shared a video showing how Jin will be able to visit animal sanctuaries across the new Iki Island expansion. As you can see, there are cats, deer, and monkeys all waiting for some love and attention from our wandering Samurai hero.
Jin can find animal sanctuaries across Iki Island where he can play soothing melodies with his flute to tame various animals. Once they've been calmed, Jin can return to pet them as often as you'd like. Cats are just one example. pic.twitter.com/SZmnbi0yLK- Ghost of Tsushima :video_game: Director's Cut Out 8/20!

So this Director's Cut basically just went from an upgrade I was interested in to one that I absolutely need. See you next month, Jin.
