Today, video game publisher Sony and developer Sucker Punch announced an online multiplayer co-op mode for its recently released samurai title, Ghost of Tsushima. The new game mode is called Ghost of Tsushima: Legends and is set to roll out later on this year in fall.
Once the new co-op mode is available, players will be able to play Legends in groups of two to four people. Players will get to pick one character out of four available classes, Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin, each with his or her own skills and qualities. A duo of players will be able to play a series of story missions together while a team of four will be able to play survival missions with enemies appearing in waves.
Once players are through with the co-op story and survival missions, they can expect to play another four-player mode called Raid which is set to launch a little after Legends. Raid will feature a setting where a team of four will be sent to 'an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal, terrifying enemy'.
For those who already own the base game, Ghost of Tsushima: Legends will be available as a free download once it comes out later this year. As usual, players will require a PS Plus subscription to play the online co-op mode.
Initially shown off in 2017, Ghost of Tsushima was officially announced at E3 2018. After a delayed launch on July 17, the game was a massive hit. It broke Sony's sales records with over 2.4 million copies sold internationally in three days, becoming the PlayStation 4's fastest-selling first-party original.
