In this review we will look at the PS5 version of the great game Ghost of Tsushima, but our focus will be on the additional content Iki Island, at the same time everyone can read our original review of the game in case you want to get our opinion on the full content of it. This version that we are looking at today, which is Director’s Cut, presents the new additional content for the game, in addition to several developments for the PlayStation 5, which we will definitely talk about in detail.
This game appeared beautifully on the last generation PlayStation 4, and now it is only getting better on the new PlayStation 5. One of the improvements that gamers will surely welcome is the ability of the game to run in 4K resolution and 60 frames dynamically (variable). On the other hand, there is 3D audio support, and its application was great and will help you, especially during combat, to know the locations of the enemies around you if you use the appropriate headphone. Finally, the PS5’s new hand capabilities have been harnessed to add a vibrating reaction in some situations and also resistance while throwing an arrow, for example.
The new addition Iki Island will take you to a new island, we might say that in terms of size it is a third or half of the original island, this is a great size for an addition of this type. In terms of time, it will take you approximately 5-6 hours to complete it, and maybe 10 hours if you want to do all the side activities, and there are some of them like the challenges of throwing arrows and others.
The main story missions in the add-on will take you on a journey in search of a new main enemy, and this time there will be some unusual elements related to psychological warfare and the impact on others. During the adventure, you will learn more about the father of the hero, Jin Sakai, and his history on this island, which is known to not welcome samurai warriors, so what will be the fate of the hero on it? I don’t want to spoil the fun of the story for the followers, but it will be exciting and will pull you in to the end.
If you haven’t been into the original game, this is a great opportunity to do so on your new generation PS5. Ghost of Tsushima is a collection of the important elements that make any game great, such as the distinctive characters and the interesting story, the wonderful graphics and sound, and the interesting and varied gameplay system. And the director’s version that we’re talking about today gives you an interesting addition to the story with additional hours of gameplay and makes great use of the PS5’s capabilities to give us the perfect version of the game.
