Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut on PC | Release Date and Exclusive Features

Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is an expanded version of the critically acclaimed (and downright gorgeous) action-adventure game originally developed for the PlayStation 4 and 5. Set in 13th-century Japan during the Mongol invasion of Tsushima Island, players take on the role of Jin Sakai, a samurai on a journey to defend his homeland and transform from honorable warrior to the legendary “Ghost.”

In addition to features that were previously exclusive to the PS5 version (detailed later in this blog post), the PC port also features new PC tweaks to finally put that expensive video card to good use:

  • Unlocked frame rates to run the game above 60fps
  • Support for ultra-wide (21:9), super ultra-wide (32:9), and triple monitor (48:9) aspect ratios
  • Upscaling and frame generation technologies (Nvidia DLSS 3, AMD FSR 3, and Intel XeSS)
  • Supports Nvidia Reflex and Nvidia DLAA
  • Fully customizable keyboard and mouse controls

PlayStation Overlay Comes to PC
