Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut PC Launch Details Revealed

On May 16, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be released on PC, bringing this incredible samurai-themed title to an entirely new market. It’s the complete package, featuring the base game, the Iki Island expansion, and the game’s cooperative multiplayer mode, Legends – which has been the source of a little controversy in recent days.

Valve has just published an article on the Steam site detailing everything you need to know about the launch of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut.

Back to Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima was released on PlayStation 4 in 2020 and ported to PlayStation 5 shortly after. It was a remarkably well-received game, boasting an immersive, emotional story, beautiful visuals, and a massive, open world that was bursting at the seams with opportunities to explore every corner of it. Now, almost four years after the game was released, it’s being made available on PC.

There’s one point of contention, though. To play Legends on Ghost of Tsushima on PC, you’ll need to make or link a PSN account, which is the exact controversy that caused a nightmare of a response from the Helldivers 2 community in the last week or so. It instantly makes a portion of the game unavailable in every country where the PlayStation Network doesn’t operate, which is enough of a sticking point, even if you get the game’s single-player mode to trawl through without any such restrictions.

That’s enough about that, though. Here’s when you can expect to start playing Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut:

  • PDT: May 16, 8 AM
  • EDT: May 16, 11 AM
  • BST: May 16, 4 PM
  • CEST: May 16, 5 PM
  • JST: May 17, 12 AM
  • BRT: May 16, 12 PM
  • AEST: May 17, 1 AM

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is available for pre-load now.

It was also confirmed by Valve that Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut can be enjoyed on the Steam Deck – as well as ‘similar handheld gaming PCs’. However, it’s marked as ‘unsupported’ on the Steam Deck owing to the PSN integration requirement for Legends.

  1. If you don’t like the restrictions Sony imposed then don’t buy their products it’s simple. Instead of whining over the Internet you idiots still bought a PS5, still bought Spider-Man 2, and bought Stellar Blade you’ll buy anything Sony sees how stupid you are.
