Director’s Cut encourages fresh sales spike

During its CES 2022 conference, Sony noted that Sucker Punch’s excellent samurai adventure Ghost of Tsushima has surpassed eight million total sales since its release in the summer of 2020.

While the stoic adventure title had already won over a passionate and dedicated audience during its launch period — ultimately surpassing five million sales by November 2020 — the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut for PS4 & PS5 has encouraged a new army of players to take up their sword against the Mongol army and its ruthless leader, Khotun Khan. The Director’s Cut includes an additional gameplay chapter, as well as support for PS5 features such as Haptic Feedback, Adaptive Triggers, 3D audio, and 4K visual resolution,

Since its launch, Ghost of Tsushima has been the recipient of numerous industry awards and GOTY nominations, and is even being adapted into a live-action movie, currently in production at Sony Pictures’ recently established PlayStation Productions. While some found fault with the title’s open-world nature — which encourages a grind of subquests — Sucker Punch’s epic adventure was widely heralded for its satisfying combat, engaging storytelling, and stunning visual design.

Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is available now on PlayStation platforms.
