Sucker Punch has finally given fans a compelling cause to return to its aesthetically gorgeous game. Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut brings the PS4 game to the next generation, with 4K quality, faster loading times, haptic feedback, 3D Audio compatibility, and even complete Japanese lip sync. The Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut contains the new Iki Island expansion campaign, as well as extra things to acquire, in addition to new features.
Ghost of Tsushima, as predicted, is a game full of Easter eggs scattered throughout its vast perspective on the Island of Tsushima. Fans found a secret shrine with a desk, and a slew of strange objects spread about it.
In fact, the desk had references to a slew of other PlayStation games, like Gran Turismo, Ratchet and Clank, and even Shadow of the Colossus. However, the latest addition conceals a fascinating secret linked to Sony Santa Monica’s God of War franchise.
Fans of Ghost of Tsushima have discovered the enigmatic Shrine of Ash on Iki Island, north of Yahata Forest. A closer look reveals an ax embedded in the side of a birch tree with a golden handprint on the trunk, an obvious allusion to the 2018 God of War game. The shrine also has a scroll that tells the story of Kratos and Atreus and a puzzle that unlocks a very nice prize for those that finish it.
After wearing the Sakai Clan Armor and drawing the sword, a cinematic will show Jin coated in ash, allowing the God of War-themed set of armor to be unlocked. This contains the Spartan Mask, the Helm of War, and the Ghost of Sparta dye, mostly white with crimson patterns of Kratos.
The armor also has a lot of tiny elements, such as chains around the wrists and forearms, which are meant to resemble Kratos’ Blades of Chaos. In reality, players may have previously seen this armor since it was initially added to the multiplayer Legends mode, albeit this is the first time it is available within the single-player game.
Ghost of Tsushima has received overwhelmingly favorable feedback from players, reviewers, and even people who live on Tsushima Island. The game’s success not only helped crowdfund repairs to the Watatsumi Shrine after a typhoon damaged it, but Tsushima mayor Hiroki Hitakatsu appointed game designer Nate Fox and creative director Jason Connell as Tourism Ambassadors. Players may now continue exploring the region and the Iki Archipelago with the Iki Island addition.
