Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut’s Iki Island Expansion Story Details and Trailer Revealed

0

New story details and the official trailer for Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut’s Iki Island expansion have been revealed ahead of its August 20 release date on PS5 and PS4.

Sucker Punch Productions’ senior writer Patrick Downs took to PlayStation.Blog to share more about this new story that allows players to take another adventure with Jin Sakai, complete with new locations to discover, characters to meet, tales to complete, and more.

Iki Island is a real island to the southeast of Tsushima, and it was also involved invaded by Mongols during the time period that inspired Ghost of Tsushima. In the expansion, Jin Sakai learns of a mysterious Mongol tribe that has gained a foothold on Iki and is led by a revered shaman called Ankhsar Khatun. This shaman is known to her followers as “The Eagle,” and not only is she a “conqueror of nations,” but she is also a “shepherd of souls” and presents a danger to Jin and his people “unlike any they have faced.”

To stop this threat, Jin must return to Iki, a place he has gone once before. He will need to confront his old fears and deeply buried traumas while stopping Khatun and her followers. In doing so, he will also learn more about “the dark past of clan Sakai.”

Sucker Punch has also revealed that their version of Iki Island provides a “stark contrast to Tsushima.” It’s a wild and lawless land of raiders and criminals that is “scarred by memories of war, and fiercely independent; the samurai have not been in control there for decades.” To complete this mission, Jin will need to work – or around – a “coterie of unsavory characters.”

Jin will also encounter pirates, smugglers, mad monks, and haunted caves on his journey to Iki, and will be able to hear new legends and learn new techniques along the way. There will also be “intimate, emotional, personal stories” about people struggling to let go of old hatreds and surviving a brutal war.

“With everything that has happened this past year, it’s no accident we also wanted to tell a story of healing… And we felt this would pose a unique and compelling challenge for Jin,” Downs wrote. “We all suffer wounds, from the humblest farmer to the mightiest jito. Wounds from the past that we carry with us. And the thing about a wound is that you can’t fight it, or stealth your way around it. Ghost weapons and samurai techniques won’t help you. A wound can only be healed. “

As previously mentioned, the Iki Island story expansion will be available as part of the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PS4 and PS5 on August 20. The full version of the game will cost $69.99 on PS5 and $59.99 on PS4, but there are also upgrade paths available for those who already own the base game;

  • PS4 players will be able to pre-order an upgrade to the Director’s Cut for $19.99.
  • PS4 players who own the Director’s Cut can upgrade to the PS5 version of the Director’s Cut for $9.99.
  • Anyone with the original PS4 copy of Ghost of Tsushima looking to upgrade to the Director’s Cut on PS5 will have to pay $29.99.

Those looking to try Ghost of Tsushima on the PS5 will also be able to play with lip sync for both Engligh and Japanese voiceovers, haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, 3D audio, drastically improved load times, 4K resolution options, and targeted 60 FPS. Also, your save file will be able to transfer from PS4 to PS5.
