A new trailer as well as the PlayStation-Blog deliver an exciting preview of the events and stories players can expect in the Ghost of Tsushima Story Expansion, which will be released as part of the Director’s Cut and available separately on August 20th for PlayStation 4 and PS5.
The extended part of the story takes place on the Japanese island of Iki, where a mysterious Mongol tribe has gained a foothold. This is led by a shaman named Ankhsar Khatun, who is also called “the eagle” by her followers.
To combat this new threat, Jin is forced to return to Iki and face old fears he associates with the island. Players not only get to know Jin’s deeply buried wounds, but also the dark past of the Sakai clan.
The partially fictional version of Iki Island offers a stark contrast to Tsushima. It is a lawless area full of criminals, marked by war and independent of the samurai who lost control decades ago. But in order to defeat the eagle, despite his abilities, Jin needs the help of the locals. He will meet pirates, smugglers and crazy monks and learn new techniques. Iki is full of adventure and tells the gripping stories of the locals who have been plagued by personal conflicts and a time of war.
