'Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut' launches next month; includes PS5-specific enhancements

got dc.JPG

Sucker Punch Productions announced today that a new version of their game, Ghost of Tsushima, will launch soon. Launching on both PS4 and PS5, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will include the original game, all additional content released to date as well as a brand-new adventure for Jin in Iki Island.

While the new adventure will be available on both PS4 and PS5, the PS5 version will include some additional features across the whole game. It will fix lip sync for Japanese voice over thanks to the console's ability to render cinematics in real time. The PS5's 3D audio and its controller's haptic feedback and adaptive triggers will be put to use in the Director’s Cut. There will also be improved load times, 4K resolution options and framerates targeting 60 FPS.

Players will also be able to transfer their saves from the PS4 to the PS5 and carry on where they left off.


Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut launches this August 20 for $69.99 USD on PS5 and $59.99 USD on PS4.

You can pre-order an upgrade to Director’s Cut on PS4 for $19.99 USD. Starting August 20, if you bought Director’s Cut PS4, you’ll be able to upgrade to Director’s Cut PS5 at any time for $9.99 USD. You can also upgrade directly (from original Ghost of Tsushima PS4) to Director’s Cut on PS5 for $29.99 USD

I hate to poke the bear but I believe Microsoft is offering free upgrades for their games for the Series-X . It's kinda the same how they did for some of the older 360/Xbox games that was ehnahced on Xbox One X.I wonder why Sony cant follow suit what's the point of making the game BC if you are not going to upgrade it for free... even more why even release a PS5 version at all when you can upgrade the PS4 version.

I'll just tell people to just play the PS4 version if they already have the game.
the new xbox also doesnt have any new controller features that theyd need to support

i got the game a few weeks ago. it has a really weird "bug" where it'll constantly download the same update you already have installed over and over

I rather enjoyed the base game; definitely the best open-world game in years, it was, so I think I'll be purchasing this DC version eventually.

Well Sony does have free upgrades, there are some 50+ games so far that have a free upgrade if you own the PS4 version, which is what makes this particular one a problem.

There's no reason beyond petty cashgrab they couldn't just do exactly what Squeenix did with FF7 Remake, give the base game as a free upgrade and then if you want the DLC you can just buy it.

Noted...

So to my understanding the PS4 pro basically do 4K 30FPS and the PS5 is doing 4K 60FPS with the graphics increase right?

Sorry I mainly play my games on 1080p so I wouldn't know. I'm not getting a PS5 until the distance future because #1 the damn scalpers are making it impssobie and #2 I just bought a new gaming laptop so I'm going to skip the Series-X all together. I think the newer games will be supported on Xbox One S and X up until 2022 so once again not really a reason to upgrade. I think PS5 is following suit aswell.

Sony cant really pull the plug on PS4 games due to the shortage.

It's actually funny because I never understood what did 30FPS and 60FPS meant until I was playing Mario 3D world and I saw the dramatic difference for some odd reason it was playing on 30FPS it almost made the game unplayable considering I was so accustomed to it playing very fast/smooth on 60FPS. I guess you will not really miss it until you play a game on 60FPS it's kinda hard to go back.

@ut2k4master
It's a good thing Microsoft didn't change their controller scheme you can use your older controllers. PS5 only use PS4 controllers on PS4 games.. ehh it's not a bad thing since most games will be on the PS4.

Well not exactly, it varies a ton by the game and developer. Most "Pro enhanced" titles aren't actually 4k, they're rendered at a lower resolution and then upscaled to 4k. Whether a game will run at 30 or 60fps on the Pro also varies a ton by the game and devs, some games will do native 4k and 30fps, some do upscaled 4k and 30fps, some do upscaled 4k and 60fps etc.

Generally speaking, PS5 upgrades tend to push games to native 4k, maybe add HDR, and then the framerate will again vary by game and dev. Some get a push from being 30fps on PS4 Pro to 60fps on PS5, others don't bother and just do native 4k and keep whatever framerate.

There's probably a list out there that compares the four different versions (PS5 native, PS5 "enhanced" AKA PS4 games but able to take better advantage of PS5 hardware, PS4 Pro, and PS4), but I CBA to look :P

Ahh understood I never did 4k gaming yet I did get a new laptop so I have to buy a 4K monitor to experience this "hyped 4K gaming" with raytracing and etc..etc.. I think Sony made a list of the upgraded games I have to double check... If dell ever have PS5's in stock I will buy one from them but ehh it's going to be a while until PS5's are healthy.

Maybe it's just me but I can play a PS3 game fine. Graphics improved yes but they didn't leap the way they did from PS2 until late PS3 era.

I bought the standard edition for $30 about a week ago. It's still sealed, so I can return it and wait for the Director's Cut to go on sale.

The $30 PS5 version w/ DLC upgrade from standard Ps4 is total garbage. The game almost never went on sale until recently, and for $40

I got it for $20 through a Walmart price that didnt last long late last year, but still...

I just started playing this one. If there was a $10 upgrade path to Ps5 I would consider that fair but $30 and not giving users an opiton

MEH weak move

Game looks gorgeous with PS4 Pro version + 60fps unlocked PS5 patch anyways

The only people that hype 4k is marketing. Most gamers will prefer 1440p.

Issue is that TVs generally don't support 1440p natively. Nevertheless, PS5 achieves 60 FPS in performance mode by using upscaled 1440p. Normally I'd poo-poo that, but Sony's method of upscaling produces an image that's hard to distinguish from 4K. It's slightly more obvious in games like Returnal which upscale to 1440p from 1080p, and then again to 4K from 1440p.

Maybe you can answer this question then I'm playing tomb raider definitive edition on my PS4 on my 4K TV and it looks beautiful so what's the resolution on that?

I only have a regular PS4 I don't own a pro

TV's you normally sit farther from so 1440p upscaled and 4k is hard to tell the difference.

Soon they'll use fsr and the difference will be even harder to tell.

Tomb Raider just runs at 1080p, it only looks good because it's a good looking game.

Something to note, 4k =/= a game is going to somehow look magically better than a game running at 1080p, pushing more pixels doesn't mean anything if a game's own textures and models aren't high resolution/good looking as well. As noted above, most people aren't going to be able to see the difference between 4k and a lower resolution on something like a TV that you sit fairly far away from, 4k (like Nvidia's whole 8K GAMING OMG WOW!! spiel with the RTX 3090 launch) is just marketing hype for consoles and that's really it.

Understood I have to do a comparison on my PS3 version of the game to the PS4 version on my TV. Also about PC gaming I did get a RTX 3060 graphics card so I have to see the type about that.. but the PS4 games look extremly well on my TV and it's not even a PS4 Pro.

My G3 played games at low/medium settings well good and that was off a 1050 but my G15 have a 3060 so I can imagine I can play games in high settings. It's kinda hard keeping up when I'm just getting back into PS4.

But then again I had no problems playing games on my PS3 since the games still look nice.

IDK I'm not a picky person lol

HDR is more exciting then 4k and 8k and all that.

But most displays suck at HDR so it may seem like a gimmick but it's not. But probelm is many display manufacturers advertise HDR even if their displays aren't capable of HDR

I have to check it out my 4K TV provides HDR and etc..etc.. I was just amazed on how Tomb Raider was looking and overall my PS4 considering the screen was very crisp...

But I'm jumping from a 2013 1080p Vizio to a LG 4K TV lol so I can definitely see the difference.
