Ghost Of Tsushima is getting a free multiplayer co-op mode called Ghost Of Tsushima: Legends. Developer Sucker Punch confirmed today that the popular open-world action game will be getting the mode as a completely free update later this autumn.
Sucker Punch senior game designer Darren Bridges describes Legends as an "entirely new experience" that's separate from the main story. It follows four warriors who have been built up as legends in stories told by the people of Tsushima, and will be a "haunting and fantastical" experience inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology... with plenty of emphasis on cooperative combat and action.
Take a look at the reveal trailer below for a first taste of Legends in action.
"We designed Legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience," Bridges explained. "You'll be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play Legends in groups of 2-4 players. 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 we'll reveal in the future.
"With two players in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, you'll 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 synchronization with your partner."
Four players can also team up to take on a series of wave-based Survival missions, fighting groups of the "toughest enemies Tsushima has to offer". There'll also be more than a few entirely new enemies with supernatural abilities, so prepare yourself for that.
A little after Legends launches, players will even be able to get stuck into a challenging-sounding four-player Raid mode. Sucker Punch didn't say much about what this mode might have to offer, but it sounds like you'll need to team up and use everything you've learned in Story and Survival to take down a "brutal, terrifying" new enemy in an "entirely new realm".
"It's been so rewarding to see the amazing reactions from all of you as you play through Ghost of Tsushima," Bridges finished. "We've been watching so many of you stream your playthroughs, and can't wait to open up this new way for all of us to play together! We're happy to offer this mode completely free to Ghost of Tsushima owners as a thank you to our players, and we look forward to hearing what you think!"
