Iki Island Trailer Released For Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut
It was recently announced, that Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will come to PS4 and PS5 on August 20th. Along with a number of visual improvements, controller options and gameplay tweaks, the Director’s Cut will also include brand new content. This new content will come in the form of Iki Island, as Jin explores a new region with new story elements. Check out the trailer below.
Jin will find himself on the nearby Iki Island, as he discovers a mysterious Mongol tribe has gained a foothold on there. Led by a revered shaman called Ankhsar Khatun, known to her followers as “the Eagle.” As both a khatun and a shaman, she is not only a conqueror of nations, but a shepherd of souls. And the danger she presents to Jin and his people is unlike any they have faced.
In order to defeat Ankhsar, Jin will have to fight alongside and avoid many dangerous people. Encountering pirates, smugglers, mad monks and haunted caves, there will be many obstacles in the Samurai’s journey. There will be new legends to hear, and new techniques to learn. Jin will have to bring all his skills to bear to defeat this new enemy.
