Sucker Punch Productions has announced that Ghost of Tsushima is getting a free multiplayer mode, available to all owners of the original game. Titled Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, the mode will be available later this year.
Legends is an entirely new experience that is seperate from the game’s open-world story mode. Instead of Jin or the companions from his journey, the new mode instead focuses on four warriors who have been built up as legends in stories told by the people of Tsushima.
Legends will be a cooperative gameplay experience, allowing 2-4 players to partner up via matchmaking or with friends, with each players able to choose one of four different character classes: the Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin.
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.
Internet connection and active PS Plus membership will be required for online multiplayer.
