Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut is finally available on Steam, marking yet another PlayStation-exclusive title making its way onto PC platforms worldwide. It has enjoyed a relatively positive reception, securing more than 57,000 peak concurrent players and narrowly edging out Horizon Zero Dawn, the first PlayStation game that was introduced to Steam a couple of years ago.

However, the launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut on PC hasn’t been a walk in the park, as many players have reported some teething issues.


Finding Balance

Ghost of Tsushima is performing well enough on PC, pulling in a slew of positive reviews – but some users are experiencing some irritating issues that are making them regret their purchase. On Steam, users have reported crashes and connection issues, and while the former issue is thought to be tied to certain hardware configurations, the connection issues are in part linked with the PSN account controversy.

Aside from Sucker Punch addressing the successful launch of Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, nothing else has been said by the firm, leading some users to wonder if they’ll ‘acknowledge’ the issues.

Fans of Ghost of Tsushima were sent into a spiral recently when Ubisoft revealed Assassin’s Creed: Shadows, which on the surface boasts many similar mechanics and elements when compared with Tsushima. Ghost of Tsushima may have done so well at launch because the new trailer for AC Shadows got gamers excited to experience a samurai-based adventure – which is what they’re getting in droves in Ghost of Tsushima.
