Are you anxiously waiting to play Ghost of Tsushima with your friends? Well, the good news is that the wait is over Sucker Punch has assured that the game’s co-op Legends mode will be available from October 16th onwards as part of a free version 1.1 update that also includes a New Game+ single-player mode. According to the previous commitment, you can play either two-player story missions (with twists that needs teamwork), four-player survival missions as well as an MMO-style raid.
Instead of playing as Jin from the solo game, you can choose from class-based, customizable characters. Samurai focus on rushing recklessly for a fight, while Hunters shoot enemies from distance. Ronin are therapists with spirit dogs, while Assassins prioritize fast travel and one-shot kills. Do expect unlockable gear and cosmetics once you start playing.
If you’re like a lone wolf, the New Game+ mode lets you restart Jin’s story using all the gear you had at the end, but with mightier adversaries to match, you can avail a new horse apart from very strong Charms and new equipment upgrades.
Irrespective of how you play the single-player story, Armor Loadouts let you allocate items to each armour set to quickly change divert your attention.
Sucker Punch’s goal is crystal clear from both new modes make clear. It has plans to keep Tsushima relevant long after you’ve completed the main plot. It’s not confirmed how well that will work compared to shooters and other multiplayer-heavy titles, but it beats dropping a game as the credits will start rolling.
