There are four classes in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, consisting of the Samurai, Hunter, Ronin and Assassin. Each has different advantages and disadvantages and can be equipped with mixed kinds of gear. There are two-player co-op missions and four-player survival modes to undertake, with a Raid coming after launch.
