Ghost of Tsushima has a dog-befriending charm in New Game+


Another reason to download update 1.1 on October 16

Sucker Punch Productions is putting in work for New Game+ mode in Ghost of Tsushima.

Along with armor loadouts (!), a new horse, Ghost Flower-fueled vanity items, another upgrade tier for your sword, bow, and armor, and "extremely powerful charms that can help Jin unleash devastating attacks and may change the way you play," there's this: the Charm of Canine Recruitment.

If you felt bad about slaying all those Mongolian dogs in Ghost of Tsushima – especially back-to-back with The Last of Us Part II – then you'll want to unlock this charm in New Game+ to befriend them.

The other big part of update 1.1, the co-op Legends mode, also has dog petting. This might seem like a small detail in the grand scheme of things, but it goes to show that they're passionate about NG+.

I'm glad I wrapped up the platinum trophy grind last week. I'm ready for all of this.
