Ghost Of Tsushima Got Its Final Patch
Ghost of Tsushima has now received what appears to be its last significant post-release update.
First out in July 2020, Ghost of Tsushima is an open-world samurai game about glancing at sunsets and beautiful views. Though it was initially released on PlayStation 4, it felt like a next-gen game, sporting load speeds so fast the studio had to slow them down. When the PlayStation 5 came out a few months later, many cross-gen games obtained free PS4-to-PS5 upgrades. It received a paid upgrade to PS5 in Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, released last summer.
But Ghost’s most significant update came in the form of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, an individual, cooperative multiplayer mode that was released out for free, and out of nowhere, for all players of the main game. Sucker Punch made Legends available piecemeal (not free) last summer, and it anchored one of the more amazing monthly PS Plus lineups in recent memory.
By the numbers, the most recent patch, 2.18, is slight and mostly addresses little issues in that Legends mode, stuff to do with adjusting item functions and abilities. The patch also adds a “PS4 Save Import” function to standalone versions of Legends. For campaign-focused players, it fixes some dialogue and cinematics and makes it so a merchant in new-game plus will sell more silk.
“While we aren’t actively working on any additional patches at the moment, we will continue to monitor feedback on the community-run Gotlegends subreddit and messages sent to @SuckerPunchProd on Twitter for any high-priority bugs or issues that emerge,” the studio wrote.
