I woke up this morning…afternoon to the news that my favorite game of 2020 so far is going to get even better. Sucker Punch is adding co-op multiplayer to Ghost of Tsushima this Fall in a new mode called Ghost of Tsushima Legends. Oh and the best part is that it’s free.
The following information comes from Darren Bridges, Senior Game Designer, Sucker Punch Productions via the PlayStation Blog:
“We designed Legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. 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.”
“With four players, you’ll be able to take on wave-based Survival missions, fighting groups of the toughest enemies Tsushima has to offer, Including new Oni enemies with supernatural abilities.“
“If you can best the Story and Survival missions, you may be confident enough to take on the four-player Raid that will arrive shortly after the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, sending you and your partners to an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal, terrifying enemy.“
Since the main story is grounded in reality, it will be cool to see a more supernatural approach to the gameplay. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
