An orchestral score that imbues Ghost of Tsushima with a sense of the epic. New flute mini-game at Iki Island's Cat Sanctuaries is nice, too, and the voice acting remains as superlative as it was just over a year ago. Proper lip sync for the Japanese VO is a nice new touch.
Absolutely stunning. Every vista you'll visit as Jin is jaw-dropping, with new expansion Iki Island providing even more gorgeous views that will have you constantly stopping to fiddle with the game's Photo Mode.
If you've been away from the game for a year, it can take some time to get back into the swing of things. But once it all clicks again, the swordplay, traversal, and everything else is just sublime. Duels remain a stylish, cinematic highlight.
The main game with a visual upgrade, including buttery 60 fps, as well as a selection of new content make the Director's Cut well worth revisiting. Or, if you're playing Ghost of Tsushima for the first time, you're lucky enough to be getting the definitive version. Fast travel is now also instantaneous.
Transfer your save from PS4 to PS5, and you can watch as your trophies ping all over again. As such, the trophies are all the same for the base game, with thirteen new trophies for Iki Island, which tie-in to completing pretty much everything the expansion has to offer.
