So it looks like Sony has officially confirmed the Director’s Cut version of Sucker Punch’s amazing Ghost of Tsushima for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. And while it will bring some great features to the game for fans to enjoy, there’s a hefty price to pay for it.
So here’s how it works. If you don’t own the game, you can pay full price — $59.99 on PS4 or $69.99 on PS5 – for it. That’s fine and dandy, but if you own the game, it gets messy. You’ll have to pay $19.99 for the Director’s Cut upgrade if you already own the core game, and that’s just on PS4. To get it on PS5, you have to pay the $19.99, plus the $9.99 for the upgrade. So, in essence, to upgrade the original game to PS5, you’ll need to pay around $30.
A number of fans have voiced complaints over the matter, especially considering that most games have free upgrades from PS4 to PS5 as of late. Even Sony themselves offered said upgrades for games like Sackboy and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, without charging players a hefty fee to do so. Most third parties have done this as well.
Sony hasn’t said a word on the matter, and likely won’t considering the game’s popularity. But its sales could possibly leave an impact, depending on who’s in and who’s not. Ghost of Tsushima already has a number of upgrades to make the game run efficiently on PS5, including filters and a smooth frame rate. The Director’s Cut, however, would add all DLC content as well as DualSense exclusive features – putting that high cost point into question.
The Director’s Cut releases on August 20th, and you can see the trailer below and decide for yourself.
