Ghost of Tsushima PC release date, exclusive features, and more

The legendary samurai Jin Sakai is coming to PC for the first time when the Ghost of Tsushima PC release date arrives later this year.

When is the Ghost of Tsushima PC release date? Sucker Punch’s samurai game was released back in 2020 for the PlayStation 4, signalling the end of the console’s time in the spotlight. Experience the turbulent life of Jin Sakai as he tries to hold off the Mongol Empire from conquering the East.

The former console exclusive title is heading to the PC later this year, with all the bells and whistles you might expect from an expertly crafted port. Ghost of Tsushima was already a stunning looking game, but the Ghost of Tsushima system requirements should ensure you’re able to experience the action-adventure game even on portable PC gaming devices. Here’s what you need to know about Ghost of Tsushima PC, including the release date, exclusive features, and more.

Ghost of Tsushima PC release date

The Ghost of Tsushima PC release date is set for Thursday, May 16, 2024. Sony is bringing the Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut version over to the Steam and Epic Game Store, giving players access to the Iki Island expansion and the multiplayer game mode, Legends.

The port is being developed by Nixxes Software, a studio that was purchased by Sony back in 2021 to bring first-party PlayStation games to PC. Not every Sony first-party port has been perfect, like The Last of Us Part 1 Remastered which saw Naughty Dog issue an apology, but the games released by Nixxes have generally been well received by critics. The last game ported to PC by Nixxes was Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart which utilized Windows 11 Direct Storage for seamless loading.

Ghost of Tsushima was last ported to the PlayStation 5 where it received a number of upgrades that have also been brought over to the PC port. Upgrades like support for 4K, a 60fps performance mode, and Dualsense support are all coming to the PC port.

Pre-purchasing Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on Steam or Epic Game Store will earn you the following extras:

  • New Game+ horse travel companion.
  • Traveler’s Attire – fit for a seasoned warrior.
  • Broken Armour dyes from Baku’s shop.
