No artwork is ever “carried out,” however there comes some extent the place it has to exist by itself deserves, untethered from its creators. That point has come for Ghost of Tsushima, which has now obtained what seems to be its remaining vital post-release replace.

Ghost of Tsushima was not amongst them; it obtained a paid improve to PS5 in Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Minimize, launched final summer season. (Director’s Minimize additionally launched a stable if unremarkable enlargement.)
However Ghost’s arguably most vital replace got here within the type of Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, a separate, cooperative multiplayer mode that rolled out free, and out of nowhere, for all gamers of the principle sport. Sucker Punch made Legends out there piecemeal (not free) final summer season, and it anchored one of many extra stellar month-to-month PS Plus lineups in current reminiscence.
By the numbers, the newest patch, 2.18, is pretty slight, and principally addresses minor points in that Legends mode, stuff to do with adjusting merchandise capabilities and balancing talents. The patch additionally provides a “PS4 Save Import” perform to standalone variations of Legends. For campaign-focused gamers, it fixes some dialogue and cinematics, and makes it so a service provider in new-game plus will promote extra silk. Annnnd scene.
“Whereas we aren’t actively engaged on any extra patches for the time being, we are going to proceed to observe suggestions on the community-run Gotlegends subreddit and messages despatched to @SuckerPunchProd on Twitter for any excessive precedence bugs or points that emerge,” the studio wrote.
