When is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut coming out? PC release times

When is Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut coming out? Get all the details you need to know to get ready for the ninja epic's arrival on PC.

When is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut coming out? It’s taken a while to get to us but finally the open-world ninja game is coming to PC. Launched to critical acclaim back in 2020 and since updated for newer consoles, we’ve been waiting a long time for it to hit our beloved desktop boxes. Now it’s nearly here and that waiting is about to pay off.

Ghost of Tsushima seems perfectly made for PC. Open-world games have often had an easier time on computers compared to consoles, simply due to hardware limitations, and with any luck Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut will be no different. With a recent good track record of PC ports, we’re hopeful this will also be perfectly playable on release.

There’s already plenty to cheer about. The game’s Legends co-op multiplayer mode is going to be present from launch, albeit in a beta form. This means that PC, PS5, and PS4 players will all be able to play together, something that took the original game a while to add.

In addition to co-op, Steam Deck support promises to be present. The full single-player game including the expansion should be playable on Steam Deck. Multiplayer mode will not, due to some PSN integrated features. This means that players may see the Steam page state that Ghost of Tsushima is unsupported on Steam Deck but the developer states that this is not true.

With the release knocking on our door, here’s when you can get your hands on Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC.
