The online multiplayer includes four different classes with different attributes and abilities, that can be used in either two-player co-op missions or four-player survival modes, with more coming later on. With New Game+, players will be able to find new ways to customize their armor and their horse, and making easier than ever to manage loadouts.
In our Ghost of Tsushima review we concluded that the game is a great end to the PS4-era, even if the game isn't entirely perfect. If you're looking to the future with the PS5, Ghost of Tsushima is getting an automatic upgrade with next-gen hardware, using Game Boost to double the frame rate to 60fps.
Becoming the Ghost is exceptionally fun
Ghost of Tsushima is a great samurai game, but its open-world could use some work. The combat and Jin's personal journey to becoming the Ghost are the real hooks here, and Sucker Punch thankfully nails those aspects.
